Block Specific Spam Woo Orders

Description

This plugin prevents a specific set of WooCommerce fake/spam orders.
Simply install and activate the plugin, there are no settings or tweaks to be made.
The plugin extends WooCommerce’s built in checkout validations to check for a specific set of known spam email accounts and names, if triggered, the spam bot simply cannot checkout and importantly does not get to the account creation stage.
The names/emails it is checking for would only be used by spam bots, so there is no need to worry about false positives.

FAQ

Will you keep this plugin updated?

Yes where possible I will try my best to add additional checks if the attack vectors change.

Thank you so much for this small snippet of code, I've had a minor problem with this bot attacking our site, and the code seems to fix it / prevent it from completing registration. The code is clean, and simple and does the job.

Love the simplicity of this. Just what I needed. Any chance it will continue to update as Woocommerce does?
