Fake customer accounts

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I upgraded from 1.6 to 1.7 with 1-click module. From this time some robot started to create fake customers accounts. It is about 5 to 10 account a day with fake email and name. No address or order is created. I am getting tons of “not delivery” emails. 

Someone told me to buy captcha module, but I do not want bother real customers with captcha when they want to make an order.

Is there any solution how to protect the “customer-creating” page?

now on 1.7.3.1

I get this now for a day or 3. Every hour a new registration with "X and X are waiting for you" and a URL etc.

Very sad that someone who has skills for programming uses this to annoy people who earn a little with a webshop.

I searched for Captcha on registration, but it is all payed. If it so normal to have this, then there is al very useful task for Prestashop to stop this as a standard.

I have the exact same problem here despite using a captcha.

For information I use eicaptcha. However spammers seems to be able to go over it in account creation.

Anyone has been able to solve this?

Edit: seems that eicaptcha devs are working on it. Hopefully will get a patch for this soon.

Ow Top! Thanks for the tip.
That is where I was looking for.

Waiting for the patch, but it is a great start! 

I installed it succesfully, and tested it. I will donate to the programmer.

Hi everyone,

Don't forget to have a look on this "froggy" post :

 

Captcha perhaps isn't enough
