Help: I am worried about being scammed

I found a studio flat in Liverpool. I live in London. So, the woman who is the agent, asked if I wanted to see a video. I saw it and liked a lot.
But, she asked me to pay the holding deposit directly to her. I questioned, why not through OpenRent, and she said because of the fee.
I paid and went through the references.
She said I could get the keys on Wednesday, but I needed to pay the rent and deposit on Tuesday.
I don’t understand why I cannot pay on Wednesday.
I’m worried I’m being scammed, even though we did a video call.

get someone else to enquire about the flat and see what the response is Whether they say yes or, no it is taken

Ask for evidence that she owns or has the right to let the property or sugges you will pay in cash on move-in day.
