What about scblaster soundcloud promotion?
I'm getting likes on my tracks from users with the scblaster logo as a profile picture and no sounds or followers.
It seems the haven't played the tracks. The likes appeared only minutes after i uploaded these tracks.
I guess these must be bots, so I reported these users as spam.
What would you say about this?

I think as it is just an image it is harder to detect and filter when these bot profiles are created. They aren't posting any text or links. Isn't this the same company that used a different name recently?

Yes SCblasters and Maddnessdeals are the same. They make a lot of money off of Soundcloud. As long as artist keep paying them they will stay. SoundCloud has made improvment to limit them but it's a battle that probably wont end anytime soon.
I have been getting them for almost 4-5 months and every time i upload a track 99% of the time its the bots liking it.

I have reported and blocked them, but they are constantly there! it sucks! It even really makes me want to make a new account.

.........! it sucks! It even really makes me want to make a new account.

I think they just jump onto any newly uploaded tracks*. Starting a new account wouldn't make any difference. I don't know if specific genre tags get more of them than others. Also, some people have noticed less if they keep a new upload on private for a few hours before making it public.

*A possibility I've just thought of is they might have a bot account following you which then gets your new uploads in its stream. Maybe check any suspect followers and block them.
A good hacker could take care of these scammers and spammers. There are too many of them everywhere and there is usually some corporate thug behind them like Tunecore.

For me music is a labor of love. The industry is dying so there are scammers preying on us artists. If Willie Nelson, John Lennon, Dylan were trying to break in today they probably would not have much luck. The pie is getting smaller. The notion of paying people to listen to your music is absurd.

Radio sucks these days and new artists with real talent just are not being heard. It's called corporatism boys and girls. Get used to it or change it.

I get all sorts of spam in my email trying to sell me listens. I am so sick of scammers and spammers in all areas of the net. The time has come for governments to ID these people and deal with them like the criminals that they are. Ethical companies like SC need to pressure governments to shut down these crooks and countries who refuse to comply should expect crippling cyber attacks.

There is a spammer scammer whose tracks keep playing on my channel. I have reported him and blocked him but he is still there. IMO, the IPs of these crooks should be banned all over the net or black listed.
