    Spamming Enquirey Box


    Hi guys. Not sure if anyone can help me but i am having the same person (or program) spamming my contact form on my site and sending for many emails (leads).

    I have a catcha on site but still i keep reciving. It seem as though they are manually entering the info into the contact form.

    a. Why would these idiots be doing this?

    b. Is there a way to track the ip address and somehow block them or report them?

    c. Is there better catchas around than others?

    thanks in advance.

    This part won't answer your question...but.
    You have that form on every page, and on your contact page it's all Fu**ed up.
    Why not just have it on the contact page.

    That's not much of a cappa your using, and yes there's better out there.
    You can get their IP address if you have statistics installed that give you that information.
    I don't know who you would report them to...maybe their ISP for spamming, but I'd bet it's a bot and it's using a masked ip address..so good luck finding em.
