It was also revealed by Jumpcut's official social media accounts that they are very diligent with their security and are themselves surprised to witness the security breach.

This morning our email service was hacked. The invoice is not real, we did not send it, and you do not owe us money. We are incredibly sorry for the alarm this caused.— Jumpcut (@JumpcutHQ) April 14, 2020
