Huge Influx of form submissions

    Hi!

    We have received almost 100 new submissions to one of our forms in the last 24 hours. Normally in that time we get 0-5. If they are spam, they are really well done. I have been with this company for 3 years and haven't seen anything like this. There is no corresponding influx of orders, phone calls, or marketing effort that would justify this. 

    Is our form compromised? I took it off the website until we resolve this. It is the form "Customer Contact Information". Thank you!

    Hi,

    Your form is fully secured with the re-Captcha field and I don't think spammers can submit a spam like these. We have a security check if someone is using a proxy or an unknown browser. If someone detected using or doing so, they will be asked for verification.

    I checked your form submissions and they looks like NOT a spam. Or, did you remove those spam submissions? I filtered submissions by August 21st.

    Thank you!

    Thank yo for your response. We discovered we were "featured" on one of those deal sites, so it was legitimate traffic. Thank you for your help!
