    I replied about a house for rent and the landlord is sending me this information for me to fill up my name and email and address and asking for a $50 deposit is this secure to do the Zelle?

    I can see you have recently submitted this form,

    Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar of the payment types offered by the landlord. If you have questions regarding your deposit, I suggest you contact the form owner by replying directly to the confirmation email you received after you submitted the form.

    Meanwhile, as a word of caution, please make sure you are transacting with a legitimate person. Jotform is an online form builder where our users use our platform to create online forms. We are not affiliated with each of our user as such, we cannot fully guarantee their legitimacy.

    Hello Kristy, just an update, since our reviewers team could not find any proof of legitimacy, the form has now been disabled.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
