We are currently aware of users receiving strange messages and links promoting prizes/rewards which are claiming to be from the Wattpad Team. We are constantly closing these spam accounts as we discover them and are working to find ways of permanently blocking these behaviors. This may take some time, but please bear with us as we eliminate such spam from our platform as fast as possible.
Additionally, we are aware that there is a bug where messages from closed spammer accounts cannot be deleted. We apologize for the error and will be fixing it as soon as possible so that the spam messages can be removed.
Thanks for your support in this issue!
The Wattpad Team
