This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Unknown scrobblings in my account / another username at this moment!!

I opened up today and some music that I have never listened was scrobbled on my account. I don't even have these artists on my computer or mobile device (the only two devices I use to scrobble) and I never use the website to listen to music so there's no chance that I accidentally listened to them.
Has this happened to anyone else or is it just me?

The top two are the tracks in question:

Exactly same issue here, artists I've never heard of and hundreds of tracks that I have not listened to scrobbled under my account. WTF?

The same thing happened to me today. I was playing an album on Spotify and suddenly two tracks Scrobbled from the album appeared as another band I've never heard before, with different song names.

Along with the fact I've lost a lot of artists that previously had 0 Scrobbles, if this continues my library is going to be a complete mess. We don't even have the option to delete Scrobbles yet.

This is currently happening to me as well. It seemed to start after I used Universal Scrobbler (old version) to scrobble a bunch of tracks that were stuck as "cached" and got lost when I had to reinstall the scrobbler to fix that problem. No idea if that's what caused the problem.

Same thing is happening to me right now. My recent tracks are showing that I am listening to Katy Perri and James Taylor, while I have none of those artists in my iTunes library, and therefore it's impossible that I am listening to them at the moment. Also, the music that I AM listening to right now is being completely ignored and not in my recent tracks (but it is showing in scrobbler). What the hell...
