I created an admin user manually through the WordPress interface and ever since then, I keep getting a daily email from WordPress stating the following:
I have removed the admin user for obvious reasons.

I then check the issue and it shows the following:
Details: An admin user with the username ######## was created outside of WordPress. It’s possible a plugin could have created the account, but if you do not recognize the user, we suggest you remove it.
So I “MARK AS FIXED” because I KNOW the username but it STILL just keeps coming and I cannot figure out why I keep getting this notice.
Please can someone explain and assist why this is happening?
