We are using WFFM (v 2.4) with MVC on Sitecore 8. We have created a form in WFFM which has three fields Name, Email and State. State field is a DropList type field. The problem which we are facing is that whenever we save the state field values, it is giving values like type name like 'System.Collections.Generic.List'.

I am not sure what is the problem. Can you please suggest the way?
