    Did anyone else receive spam that looks like self pingbacks but are actually not from your site? Is there any duplicate content issue since your own
    content is used on another site? Help!

    Yes, I also had the same problem one month back. But now everything is fine. Pingbacks are generated by spammers who use automated scripts to send a trackback to websites. These spam links direct illegal activities such as distributing malicious code and running scams. As I have wordpress website so, I just know how to stop pingbacks for that. Below is the image to show how it is possible.
