Good morning: I have two contact forms on my page, and when I test them myself, they appear to be working. Nevertheless, I keep getting odd responses from the new one. Looks like they're trying to get me to visit some webpage (for bad purposes, no doubt). And further, the Statcounter I use is not recording them having visited that page, so I'm not sure how they're intercepting (?) the form.

Here is an example:

From: albertaknouse@moose-mail.com
Subject: Leave a Comment:
Date: 10/08/2015 at 09:13 PM (GMT -6) from 155.94.194.71

Article(s): I visited many websites however the audio quality for audio songs present
at this site is genuinely superb.
Name: Alberta
Website: http://yourdomain.com
Comment: I visited many websites however the audio quality for audio songs present at this site is genuinely superb.

*************

Note that they are not using the contact form as intended, i.e., to comment on the articles in the magazine. Not sure what's going on.

Your help appreciated!

Did I post this in the wrong forum? I continue to get these weird messages and the poster does not appear to have visited that page.

Disappointed that there are no replies.

They are SPAM messages. You should turn on the CAPTCHA feature under the Form Security portion of the control panel which will help prevent this.
