Please search the forum before posting. This has been brought up many a time. I just answered the same question within the last two days.

What makes you think these are "fake" or "spam" users? My understanding is that they are simply users that signed in through Facebook.

Please read Alan's earlier posts.

In addition, these are user names automatically created by the system when signing up with Facebook.

Definitely not working as designed and Waze's QA team is checking it.

Fake users

I have encountered quite a few false postings by fake or spam users which is very obvious. All their nicks start with a world_

40 world_fndem40w 2325 -29
41 world_472bfwqu 2320 -15
42 world_tnucz4g9 2306 -28


This is just a list of the weekly top ranking users in my state (Country Singapore actually). But how many of these World users exist and are actually posting the right content?

Any one with any idea on how to get rid of them?

Thanks...

as I had seen lots of false postings under these users, I had automatically thought that these are spam accounts.

Thanks for the clarification.
