    Found the email send in modules/create_account. I've disabled that for the moment. New customers will not get a welcome email but that will work for now.

    I replied on another thread. I done everything imaginable EXCEPT add another CAPTCHA. I suppose I should do so, but I am not encouraged. Has anyone solved this?

    Without a link or text link back to your site and/or a list of mods installed, its a guess as to solving or commenting on your problem. The few hits I've noticed on my own site failed to create accounts!!

    This is happening to us as well. 10-20 fake accounts a day. Quite annoying. Did anyone come up with a fix?

    I have just noticed this in debug log would this help? I have removed the domain and changed the backend directory to admin. PHP version 5.6 Zencart 1.5.5f

    The basic 155f-156a filters for preventing some fields from interning bad data or setting some limits to amount or lack of data is really good. Adding a eye testing CAPTCHA or Honey pot CAPTCHA works on bots.. Lest Google version 3 is working I think.. 2 has known walk around. Blocking IP's work, blocking bad bots helps, I placed some code above that helps with human bots.

    In testing, I'm not getting accounts created with what is reported! I can create standard accounts without what's reported, but that's is not what the spammers are after. After adding non-CAPTCHA, the bots have yet to pick the right number! Which is why I ask for links, mods installed, basically, answers to the posting tips so folks here can better help figure out what to help you with...

    @ianhg For logs created from admin, if you was not looking at or managing customers... you may have a problem, see this FAQ. If there created as you delete or edit accounts, then its due to the data in those fields, not the code.

    Default Re: Spam - fake customers

    Not sure if this helps anyone. Yesterday I enabled the "Send Copy of Create Account Emails To" myself and this morning I had 10 new emails for newly created fake accounts.

    Does the info on the bottom of those emails or the IP address being used help anyone in solving this?
    Is there a way to shorten the login name to say 12 characters? BTW I am using version 1.5.5f

    Here are 2 of them.
