My classified site seems to get scam buyers every once in a while.  They answer a whole bunch of ads with the same exact text and I can tell by what they are inquiring about that it's a scam.  I would like to be able to block their IP address.  I can do this with Web-Dorado's FormMaker software, so I would like a similar feature here. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks

Hi nkqyUD1984,

Thanks for your post. 

We fight with the same issues as you do regarding spam. We have an article in the Support Forum of our sister plugin about some general steps you can take to help cut down on the issue: https://businessdirectoryplugin.com/support-forum/faq/how-to-handle-spammers-with-bd/

We have also had some great luck with WPBruiser recently -- you might want to check that out as we definitely recommend it: https://wordpress.org/plugins/goodbye-captcha/
