    Received submissions that did not originate from the website where the form is embedded

    Asked by MPG123123 on January 20, 2017 at 10:49 PM

    Hi, During the last few days we have received strange responsive, filled out forms, that do not originate from our site. All are marked

    Full name dsafas

    Your name afdads

    Your email sdfads

     

    We use StatCounter that doesn't show anyone visiting the site and using the form.

    Do you have any idea what's happening here?

     

    Thank you.

    If you can verify that those submissions are not from your website, then it's possible that the submissions were made through the form's direct link.

    If you believe this is a spam, I would suggest you add a Captcha on your form.

    I see that the fields that were just filled are the ones set as required. However, I also noticed that the email field is a textbox field not to set to validate if the entry is a valid email address.

    You can also try to add any of the following widgets below.

    It may also be helpful if you set unique submissions with your form
