There is no perfect way to solve this issues as far i think.
But we can try to solve them one by one.
If your website
authenticates new customer email ids, then its easy to figure out those customers whose email not verified.
If your store doesn't authenticate or send Verify link than you can delete the recent customer but there are chances that new real users have no order as well, in this case, you can send them an email verification link to verify the email.
have a look at their

I.P please first check is there any order placed from the same I.P.
