    WordPress:

    Here (below) is another fake follower notice that I received today. They always seem to be from Outlook accounts. I hope this will stop soon.

    By the way, these always come in via email, but I never get them via a notification within my WordPress account.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi again –

    Thank you for the reports. Can you confirm which sites these are occurring on?

    Yes. I had a spate of this back in January. Unfortunately it seems to be happening again

    All the followers I’m getting are for my main site, https://persebek.wordpress.com

    As they were the last time this happened. There’s a few spam comments too, but nothing out of the ordinary in terms of how much I get.

    Hi. I had this problem a few months ago, then WordPress stopped it and now it’s back. Not many so far, but that’s how it started last time. Thanks, WordPress, for all your hard work on this.

    #3092213

    Howdy folks – Just sending a reminder for y’all that we are actively working to combat this spam annoyance. Thanks for your patience.

    I keep getting email notifications like this:

    (email redacted) just started following you at http://shutterbugiyer.wordpress.com. They will receive an email every time you publish a post. Congratulations.

    But when I go to My site >People>Email followers to delete the emails are not listed there.
    This makes it more intriguing.
    Please advise.

    Hi. I have added the “Follow through email” widget to my blog, I noticed all the emails I am receiving are with @outlook.com, some of the names didnt seem real either. here is an example
    [email redacted]
    Are these spammers, if so how can I stop this?
    Appreciate your input on this.
    Thanks.

    Hello,
    I am also bombarded with a lot of fake followers with @outlook.com email address. If I go to Insights tab, it shows me “36” Social followers whose names are not visible, but I continuously get emails that they are following my blog.
    Should I be worried? Should I post all the spam emails here?

    #3092223

    fayandfay1 – Yes, this sounds like the spam that we are working on. It’s nothing but an annoyance though, your site is safe. Can you tell me if they are being caught in the spam filter? And if not, please mark them as such. Thanks!

    #3092224

    kulin29 – No need to worry. This spam is just an annoyance but no threat to your site.

    Hi everyone,

    As said earlier, (email redacted) spoof-mails are just the mail messages you get in your Inbox and nothing more nowadays.

    I am pretty suspect that these mails are targeting the Outlook.com since its Beta period (BTW, they are constantly improving).

    So, I think a common workaround should be addressed.

    On our side, the WP account owners, should inform these mails as scam.

    Hoping to get rid of these…
