    I have an online store. It has a "contact us" page where people can e-mail us. I keep getting e-mails that look like this from it.

    Looks like a bot is attempting spam you. Basically these bots look for any fillable form. The bot then fills the form in and submits it thinking it's a blog comment or forum reply form.

    You can try adding reCATCHPA to the contact form: reCAPTCHA: Stop Spam, Read Books

    Thanks. That puts my mind at ease. I just wanted to make sure that it was not a scrambled message from a client - something that I should be responding to.
