Analytics gets hundreds of users, no hits and no way to filter

For the past week my GA has been getting random jumps of hundreds of 'active users' on my account, with 0 data to go with them. I get no new page hits, location data, events, or other data, just users. I took GA off of my web servers and after a few minutes I'm left hundreds of 'users' on the site with 0 orange bubbles on the map or info about them.

I attempted to set up a specific event that triggers when a user hits my site, and then filter the traffic by the event action in the GA settings, but this had no effect. What is going on here? How can I filter out this bad traffic? I have previously implemented bot prevention measures.

Go to View SettingsBot Filtering → and tick the box for Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders.
