I don't get very much Spam through my contact form on my Shopify site. Just some very specific and relentless ones.
The lastest messages say something about "Scrap content" — is that a thing? I don't care. The senders change but the message is the same.

Scrap content is explained here. You more than likely actually don't have this type of content on your site. The message you received definitely looks like spam to me!
Sorry to hear you're receiving those messages! I hope this provides some clarity. If you have any other questions just let me know.
Sorry for misunderstanding!
Currently to help combat spam, a captcha is set to appear on both your newsletter and contact form signups when there are two submissions done from the same IP address within 24 hours.
For your current situation, you would need to add a captcha for the customer's first time entering information. These apps will help you accomplish this:
Hope this helps!
