Contact Form Spam Prevention - reCAPTCHA is broken, it allows for SPAM

As a favor, I set up a Wordpress site with a typical contact form and used Google's reCAPTCHA to prevent SPAM. I must say that over the course of the last 3 months, I have been getting daily SPAM messages, about 2-3. Which is not bad. 

But it's not enough, Google's reCAPTCHA is simply no effective any longer, and you have implement another challenge to zero out you SPAM from a site. In the past, say a year ago this was enough, but no longer.
