Not sure if this is correct board to ask question.

Using Saratoga templates & Contact Form PHP Script with image captcha from mchallis. In use for about 1.5 years, never received any spam email. This last week probably getting 20+/day.
I temporarily removed the contact page, but don't think thats the issue.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

I removed my contact page, temporarily two days ago. No spam since then, you may want to try that as a test.

I used to get the SEO emails from India.  But that was manual "bots".  Only once a week or so.  But it stopped when I blocked most of the IP's from the subcontinent.

Are you getting any out of Brazil?  There seems to be a new bot down there.
