    Whats the points of fake subscribing multiple accounts for a new review site that is not even up yet? They don't even post, I would assume they would sing up to post links to their site but no.
    I even made it so they had to verify their email.. So is there a hack? Or they just hoping WordPress will give them a admin account on accident? I'm not sure what they get out of this.

    Idk dude. The internet works in mysterious ways.

    Not being sarcastic either. Who knows what people are up to nowadays. You should make sure your WP site is extra secure since you're seeing activity like that. And have you deleted the accounts? Or try blocking the IP after you discover who it is. Let your host know what's going on. They should want to help you since that seems like a security matter.

    Just a suggestion.

    It is probably just spam bots signing up for accounts. They just crawl the net and sign up on any forms they find.
