Hi folks,

Ive logged into my website and over the last couple of weeks Ive had 100 new accounts. All the email addresses look genuine but the names are just random letters. and the address information is the same. Im guessing this is a bot? How can I clean this up and stop it from happening please?

Thanks!

I had this issue and it was becoming really annoying having to keep deleting the bogus customers. I installed this extension and haven't had an problem since:
