I didn't expect this, but I have now received at least four forms in the last few days from spammers. The spam forms always include the domain onlineinvestmentworld.com. Is there a way I can block fhese people? I have used mycontactform for several months and didn't expect something like this to happen. Please help! Thanks. Teri

Yes, you may block the sender's IP address under the Form Security portion of the Control Panel. In addition, we are working to develope word filters for the forms.

I blocked the IP and haven't gotten any more today so far so I hope that did the trick, thanks. Teri

I'm get a ton of spam forms and each one has a different IP address ... all of which I have been able to trace back to a specific company in Israel ...

I have blocked each IP address as they come in but obviously this is a futile battle ...

Is there any way of blocking an entire country from submitting forms or is there anything else I can do to prevent this?

Thank you.
