I am sure I do not reveal my store email to the internet. Have tried googling my store email and found no matching query entities. But I keep receiving spam emails with a link redirecting you to a webiste called Canadian health and care mall(which I think might be spam site). This keeps happening daily since a couple of days ago. It is really annoying!
Why this happens and what should I do?

PS: anyone else having this problem?

YEs, me too. Label it as spam and create a spam folder if you dont have.

I use this vqmod ReCAPTCHA Free

Hope it helps. I will report back if spamming has been stopped.

reporting back. It seems that spamming has not been stopped. I am not sure whether robots or human are doing that spamming. Dang...

ReCAPTCHA Free is built on Google's captcha service (ReCAPTCHA).

Unfortunately bots are able to beat ReCAPTCHA around 10% to 30% of the time. There's also a market for paying people to solve them.
