Hi guys,

I have a problem with spam. As you can see in the attachment, there is a user at this link that I want to remove. If I click on any of the links (Ban user, Delete account, Delete user in dashboard), I get an error because the user is not exists. 

/wp-admin/users.php?action=delete&user=20760&_wpnonce=84fcf68a93

I checked in the database and the user doesn't exists. I tried to search in the database for the words the user put in the profile but I can't find them.

How can I find this user?

wpForo Version
2.0.6
WordPress Version
6.1

@erossini Have you synced your users from the forum Dashboard? Do you allow or at some point in the past allowed guests to post in your site with the cross-posting WPForo addon enabled?

Those are some of the things I can think of right now that could cause something like that to happen.
