    The following is what I am receiving from jotform or some spam account. I have not been changing my password and my account has not been hacked because I can still login with my original credentials.

    We apologize for the inconvenience, the spammer has been sending emails even to non-jotform users. We have now taken action and suspended the account and disabled the forms. Thank you for understanding.
