Unrecognised Device in iCloud

Afternoon chaps,

There seems to be an unrecognised device showing up in my iCloud when I view it through a browser.

It shows up as 'Joseph's Mac Mini'. - However I have never owned a Mac Mini.

Anybody have any suggestions as to why this would show up?

Also, old devices that I no longer own and have erased still show up in the devices column ; although they do say 'Erase Requested on 25th September etc'. Shouldn't they just disappear?

Any insight greatly appreciated as always.

You can remove devices from iCloud.com using the Find My iPhone application. Just remove the ones you no longer have or have access to. I have to update mine every year.

To do so, click on the device you want to remove and look for a link at the bottom of the page.

yeah i've sorted the problem of deleting products I no longer own.

However I'm still curious as to how a device I have NEVER owned (mac mini) could show up?
