Question about robotic abilities

My business is US based with no international ties. An Alexa report recently showed that 50% of my traffic comes from Poland and 20% comes from Israel. My traffic logs show no traffic from either one. I try to submit exclusively to US search engines. Can a robot redirect traffic and if so how? I can not find my website in any Polish or Israeli directories.
I want to add that I have since installed anticrawl and I found scrapers immediately. I also learned that there are competitors who steal key words/phrases for their own positioning in the SERPS and the victim will get penalized for duplicate content on top of being robbed. I watch the logs for any strange activity and block those ips. It looks like I have a bad bot thing happening. Does anyone else have info on this? There are so many new tricks out there.
