Hello Kara,

I don't know what it is but there are links in the message which you should never, ever click on.

If someone is trying to contact you and they are human they will get through and if they have a problem it's likely to be their side.

You should test your Contact Us form independently from another email address and see if it comes through as expected. It is also a very good idea to add a Captcha facility to your form to prevent automated bots from sending invalid or spam messages (if you haven't already)

Hello Kara,

The email submission certainly looks like spam. It is a very good idea to add a Captcha feature as Gop suggested. For information on how to do this, please see this tutorial.
