We've built a register form inside WFFM with a custom save action. The custom save action tries to create a new user with an exterior service. However sometimes the e-mail they use to register, already exists in the exterior service.

When a user registers with an account that's already in use, we would like to display a message at the top where the usual error message that says: "There was a problem while trying to register your account".

Is this possible?

You should be able to create a custom form verification action, similar to your custom save action. Look at WFFM > settings > actions > form verification > user exists for a model to follow. The error messaging is part of the form verification action enter image description here
