    Hi

    I am getting lots of spam completed forms all of a sudden.. this has started over the last few weeks and now its several every day.  Suddenly I have had a message that I am near my limit for the free account, however 95% of these are spam.

    What can i do?

    I have reset your monthly form submission counts. So, you will not go over your limits.

    One possible solution is to add CAPTCHA to your form(s). That will stop spam submissions if they are done by spam bots.

    If the spam submissions are done by human users it is not possible to stop them.
