I'm facing a problem, junk/fake customer are registering on Magento. I would like to know if someone has experienced same and how it can be fixed.
I'm not found of using captcha solutions, I would rather intercept customer profil before regestering, write some rules on names, email etc... but i'did not managed to stop process.
so I write an observer based on event "customer_save_before" and i'm able to detect when it's a fake one, but i'm unable to stop registering proccess.
code looks summarized like
$event = $observer->getEvent(); $customer = $event->getCustomer();
after some logic to detect junk, I don't be able to have some action on this customer.
maybe i'm too late in magento process to stop it ? More probably, this is because 'im using an observer and it cannot really stop other running task, like registering...
any help appreciated,
