Spam User registering on Registration page

Spam User registering on Registration page

I have created a registration page using DataAssist 2.0.7.
In the registration page i have 2 emails generated by UE 4, one for the user and one for me.

I have noticed that there are tons of spam users created in the database, and no email is generated either to the user or to me.

How is this happening and how can i avoid it?

Below is the section of the code i'm using in the Registration.php page

<?php require_once('../Connections/scipt.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../webassist/database_management/wa_appbuilder_php.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../webassist/email/mail_php.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../webassist/email/mailformatting_php.php"); ?>
<?php

$today = date("Y-m-d");

if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
session_start();
}

if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
}

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

// *** Redirect if username exists
$MM_flag="MM_insert";
if (isset($_POST[$MM_flag])) {
$MM_dupKeyRedirect="registration_error.php";
$loginUsername = $_POST['username'];

PS a part of the final code is missing due to character limitations!
