I was running an auction script a few months back and some low life stated using it to spam me. I had to go into admin and throw in a false email addy.
No spam but no contact from customers either.
Is the contact form on CS-Cart safe because of the captcha system ?
There was no captcha on the contact form at my auction site

I did not have captcha running for a while for the "reviews" and was getting spammed. I added it and it stopped. So I guess, yeah, teh captcha system does work...

I found the best way of stopping contact form spam is to

1) deny access of the contact form to google bot via robots.txt
2) remove the contact form (only) from the google cache.

there. no spam and no capatcha either
