    Are they coming from the same IP blocks atleast? If so you could filter them out with .htaccess

    <Limit GET POST>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    deny from 123.255
    </LIMIT>

    It depends.. where I put 123.255 you will want to put the spammers ip range..

    So lets say they are all coming from 205.166.x.x, put 205.166 in your .htaccess file.
