Hi Lysa,

That really looks like some kind of spam.

It can be one of 2 reasons;

Either a so called robot is simply entering stuff into your form and submitting possibly hoping that you will respond so that it can harvest your email address to sell on or it's some nuisance deliberately created by someone. If so this should pass fairly quickly. If you are being inundated then your short term solution is to remove the form page for a period of time and then bring it back after a few days.

To prevent a robot from doing this then the easiest way is to add a Captcha facility onto your form. This effectively prevents robots from being able to do the intelligence match. Captcha is a facility offered on the form creation.
