    There could be a couple of reasons that this could be happening to cause you to receive multiple emails from one person in the same form.

    It could vary from multiple email recipients, multiple email notifications, the user clicking the submit button multiple times, or even a spammer filling in your form if the data doesnt seem logical.

    Can you please tell us which form this is happening on so that we can investigate to help resolve the problem for you?

    I checked your form and there was nothing I could see that would trigger multiple emails to a single address.  The notification does send to multiple addresses, but should only send one email to each address. 

    When I checked your forms submissions, it looks like some users are simply submitting the form multiple times.  There may have been some lag on their end and they pressed the submit button several times.

    If you would like to prevent this from happening with future submissions, you can enable unique submissions:
