Unable to block a follower

I noticed that as soon as I created my SC account, I had a follower. It's obviously some kind of bot, trying to get me to click on a phishing link at worst, or just simply pornographic stuff.
I don't see any option to block this "Jessica" when I view that profile. What can I do?

This is patently UNhelpful.

I stated very clearly that when I viewed the profile in question, there was NO OPTION to block!

Now I have to spend even more time trying to fix this problem, as does someone else who experiences the same thing.

Knowledge comes before speech and action!
And frankly I'll just shut down my entire account and try again, rather than faff around with this nonsense
