How to delete a "stuck" batch account.

I have a batch account with no Jobs or Pools which I have been trying to delete for a week now. Every time I try, I get the following message:

Error deleting Batch account The specified account is being created. RequestId:86fde52c-c387-4b89-adb4-cf873782cb82 Time:2016-03-02T16:26:06.0636008Z
This batch account is also the only resource in its Resource Group, but I can't delete that one either.

Any tips?

Hi Frank,

This shouldn't happen.  Can you share your account name, and the region it is on with us so that we can take a look at what's going on?

u4peo should now be deleted.

Please let us know if you have any other issues.
