    I'm afraid the email was coming from a spammer who is using us, Jotform, to send out spam messages to random gmail, yahoo and aol addresses. We have suspended the user to prevent him from sending out more spams. We are sorry for all the troubles, and you can safely ignore the email you received. Rest assured that, no data were compromised during this incident. Should you have any other concerns, feel free to contact us anytime.

    @leahweiner,

    We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. I see that the issue is already being addressed on a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/1183652- by our colleague. We believe that the other email should also be from the same spammer. However, the issue has already been taken care by our backend team. However, since you mention that you have received another email, we request you to provide us with additional information on the other thread so that we can investigate the issue further.
