    I received an application request from a rental property and would like to confirm if it is legit.
    Saying nothing of the property, I contacted the owner and requested a walkthrough of the home, to which they replied by sending an application and requested it be filled out prior to the walkthrough.
    The only reason I'm wary is because it is no longer being conducted on realtor.com, but now directly through email.
    Is there a way to verify if this form is legit or a scam?
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for reporting this matter to us and helping us to keep Jotform safe. We understand how upsetting things like this can be, and we take your security and privacy very seriously. We want to assure you that Jotform is not participating in this conduct. We supply a Form Builder, and unfortunately, some parties may use the forms for wrongful purposes.

    I have escalated your concern to our Team. I will get back to you as soon as I have an update.

    Hi Robert,

    After looking into this, we determined that it is a scam. So, we have suspended the account, the account owner, as well as any forms and apps connected to it. However, please keep in mind that although the form owner has no access to the form or data at Jotform now, they might have received your submission information if they enabled the Notification Email feature.

    Please feel free to reach out again if you have any questions or if we can help you in any other way.
