Some dormant spammer journals have started to activate and follow people. The usual pattern is that they have an empty journal, will follow one or more people, then add spam links to their profiles and/or spammy entries.

If you are followed by a likely spam journal, do not follow them back. Place a support request in the anti-spam category.

I had two such accounts follow me in the past two days.
