spam on contactus page

Hello ,
I have a contact us form on the site where users can submit their enquiries. Since last few weeks I am getting loads of automatic or junk messages from this page.
Can someone please let me know if there is an easy way of stopping this? I have seen quite a few websites having users to verify some uniquely generated code before submitting the page, perhaps this could avoid spammers?
Please can someone advice/help me on this.
regards
sam

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
