OK, thanks. The reason why I asked is I saw that there ARE spam mods
available for phpBB and, not knowing our setup, I didn't know if we were
using any of them, or if they would help.

Like anything of that nature, they might help  if configured appropriately.

One even claims to "do" moderation. But, of course, some attention would
likely be necessary.

In this particular case, we might think about closing the "vi" forum and
deleting all accounts of a certain age if these seem to be the cause of
problems, then reopening again with only newer accounts available and see
what happens.
