So here is what we received recently (see screen shots). I changed the "blank" email template to have three asterixis as shown here:

***Details are also saved to DB for later use

Also there is NO input on the Contact form with the Id or Name of "message" yet it shows in the final recieved email.

Additionally, the Blank template page using the $remove[] method to exclude "hdn-consent" from the final email but it is not coming into play as this shows in the final email.

Still at al loss on how they could be sending / submitting these forms when they show field values not present and now even reference a recent update of "***Details are also..."

$remove = array();
$remove[] = "";
$remove[] = "x";
$remove[] = "y";
$remove[] = "hdn-consent";
$remove[] = "comment";

$removeBegins = array();
$removeBegins[] = "Security";

$removeEnds = array();
$removeEnds[] = "_x";
$removeEnds[] = "_y";

$removeIncludes = array();
$removeIncludes[] = "Security";
