How do I stop BOT user ratings

Hello, my film 7E has been plagued by recurring fake ratings on its page. The ratings are heavily slanted to favorable 10s but it's ridiculous and I want it to stop. Neither myself or the other producers know how this started but it seems there are other films in the "also liked" category that seem to have similar fake ratings.  Any ideas how to disable the bots for good so I have an accurate user rating of my film?

Yes this is it. The ratings will go up again soon, I’m sure, as they always do. It has been at 6.1 for months and just today it went back down. It would be nice to have the whole thing corrected so it stays level

Thank you for the replies. It's good to know bots can't vote on the site. However, it seems obvious there are companies that create fake accounts to boost up movie ratings. 

I'd rather have an honest 3.1 rating than a fake 6.1 especially when it's clear the film has received "help" from some kind of rogue PR company.
