    Hello Justin! On your "01) BWC Credit Card Auth KY" Form, you're collecting Credit Card information from your users (in plain text fields) which is strictly prohibited on Jotform (screenshot of the fields attached).

    Our system detects it as a Phishing activity.

    Phishing. You agree that Jotform Inc. may terminate your Jotform Service immediately if a form’s purpose is found to be deceptively obtaining, for example: sensitive credit card information, social security numbers, user login credentials, or other sensitive personal information. All these activities are considered as Phishing and any account along with the violating forms will be suspended immediately.

    There are other ways to collect Credit Card information from your users. You can use one of our payment apps to gain your user's consent to bill them later.
