I keep getting emails that say "A visitor to your Web site has filled out the form located at..." but I can tell these are not real leads and they must be robots or scammers or something.  How do I stop these?

Hello,

If you have a contact form element on your website, you can choose to add a challenge phrase. If it is a custom form, this is not available. You would need to use a 3rd party form generator to have a captcha along with a custom form.

If you click on a contact form element, you will see the option on the menu on the right. If you have created a custom form, it won't be available.

Could I bother you to look at my form please?  I didn't create a custom form but I don't see the option on the right either.  http://www.fitzgeraldpainting.org/contact.html

Ok, it looks like you did create a custom form. You would either need to delete this and add a contact form element, or create a custom form with a 3rd party form generator and get the HTML to embed it on your website.
