abuse of form

Hi!
Our client has a contact form in place, made with Chronoforms v5: https://www.ovoudemolen.nl/contact
As you can see we have built in recaptcha.
The form sender (website mailer) is info@ovoudemolen.nl.
The form is addressed to secretariaat@ovoudemolen.nl.
Our client reported this morning that the form seems to be abused.
A mail was sent through the form, but it was addressed to a website user 'Angelique Nuijten'.
It seems someone was able to change the addressee in the form.
Can you help me to determine what happened?
Regards,
Maurice

Hi Maurice,
Please check that the Check ReCaptcha action is correctly set up - it looks to me as if I can submit the form without checking the ReCaptcha box - it reloads the form but doesn't show any error message. Is that correct?
I'm not sure haw the To Email Name could be changed - how do you have the Email action configured?

Hi Bob,
The Check ReCaptcha should be working fine - it did when I configured the form some time ago, anyway.
I just checked: site & secret key are correct and in place.
I see what you mean: the form indeed refreshes and shows no error when ReCaptcha is not checked. Strange. In the ReCaptcha is a validation message in place however. Could this be an issue with SEF URL's in combination with the form embedded in an article?
The configuration of the e-mail action:
[Basic]
To: secretariaat@ovoudemolen.nl
[Advanced]
Dynamic subject: Onderwerp (=subject field (hidden) in form)
Dynamic from / reply to / name are also filled out with the form fields Name & E-mail.
Hope this makes sense.

Hi Maurice,
It could be an issue with the URL - please try adding a full Action URL directly in the Display Section action

Thanks Bob,
I'm not sure how to do this.
Instead, I have done the following.
Since I remembered having issues earlier with embedded forms, I now have a menu-item in place that opens the form directly:
This way the validations work fine, also the check on the ReCaptcha.
When you fill out the form and click the send button, the thank you message shows.
BUT: the e-mail action seems not to work.
I have my own e-mail address in place in the 'to' field.
Also, if I look at the Setup tab, all seems fine with the E-mail action (all checks are green).
Do you have a trouble shooter for this?
ps. I know we're a bit off topic here, since the reason for this ticket was a presumable abuse of the form

Hi webcase,
Please drag a Debugger action into the On Submit event, then submit the form and post the debug - including the 'dummy emails' results here.
