Hi,

We are getting a ton of spam through our Contact Us form (link) - to the tune of 30 emails at a time. We added a ReCaptcha, but that doesn't seem to be helping at all. Is there a way to block an email domain, or something else we can do? I am brand new at this, so go easy on me! Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere - I couldn't find anything when I searched. 

Thanks,

Katie

Hi Katie ~ I'm experiencing the same thing. Did you find a solution, and if so - would you mind sharing?  My searches have also turned up nil in handling it. As a one-woman shop, I'll take all advice.

 

Thank you! 

Kate

The usual steps to stop spam are to add a Captcha to forms, and avoid showing email addresses on webpages. 
 

If you have a ‘Captcha’ installed then the spam is being created by hand, not by bots. These are probably low paid humans in another country and so there is not a ‘solution’ to this. Depending on the severity and the way the form is being used, one workaround might be to add a field to the form that automatically logs the IP address of the user’s device. If you find that the spam is always being generated from the same range of IP addresses, you could then take steps to block these from visiting your site.

Any advice on how to take the next step and allow only 1 form submission per IP address, or block users based on their browser (I've been told Explorer pre V6)?  

If I'm using JS to implement Recaptcha V2 on an embeded form, can I try V3 or is it won't work with SQS? Thank you.
