This has happened in the past and was fixed via a vps (definition) update.
There is nothing to be concerned with, it will go away.

It happened to me too.
The account appears after an update and disappears after rebooting.

I rebooted and now I don't see it either. Why did it do it though?

It's a bug that was supposed to have been fixed in beta testing, but it seems it wasn't completely.
