 Hi @fs5ve

 Thank you for this report. I have reproduced this problem on a website
 without any additional plugins.
 I created a new user, with all kinds of extra personal information
 attached to its profile. After that, I went to "Erase personal data".  I
 entered the username, send the request to erase the data about this user.
 Then it showed "Erasure completed" and it showed a notice that no personal
 data was found for this user.

 Afterwards, I went to the menu item "Export Personal Data", entered the
 username, and voila... all the information was still there. Conclusion:
 nothing about this user has been deleted or anonimyzed.
