Bots?

We keeping getting leads with Mr or Ms as their job title and a year in the company name like '1953'. Is this happening to anyone else/ is this definitely a bot?

Thanks!

Re: Bots?

Check the lead activity log. Possibly. Do a search here as there are some solutions for reducing this.

Thanks, i've reviewed the activity log and it looks like they were all created via the same form. The confirmation email was delivered so the email address is valid.

This issue came up in our Atlanta UG meeting yesterday.  One of our members suggested that you can place a hidden field on your form that you can check for "Not Empty" in your validation workflow - if the field is not empty then the bot assumed the field was valid and would place a value in there.

Thanks! I'll definitely try adding a hidden field and see what happens.
