This morning's applictations to import has 1,749 applications. The average for a Monday morning is 200-300. I am pretty sure most of these applicants are Spam. Is there anything being done to prevent for so many applications getting through?

College of Marin got about 50 and the SPAM filter caught them all.  They had an email pattern of firstname, lastname plus random letters at yahoo.  The email names didn't match the applicant names.  All were out of our area and nearly all had the same IP address 194.56.226.37.

66% of the apps we downloaded this month were fake.

I sent you an email with some additional info.
