Just a few minutes ago my Flipkart Account was hacked.

I had received an SMS from Flipkart that mobile number to another number. After a few minute i received a email that my email has been changed.

I tried to contact the mobile number which i received in the SMS from Flipkart.

The person said he received an call from +12563335956 saying he is a Flipkart Executive and wants to credit Gift card and asked OTP and the person gave the OTP. 3-4 times.

I have contacted the Flipkart support team they said the issue will he resolved by 26th November.

Another Bad thing about Flipkart, i had received an email mentioning the email change, And they provided an email id [email protected] if account is hacked. But when i tried to email in that email id, i received an email [email protected] no longer in use.

Just a note to everyone

Flipkart Doesn’t have good security options fro account.
If some how someone gets your password then he can change your Mobile number and Email id, as Flipkart doesn’t send any verification to old mobile number or email for the same.

So better not to store a huge amount in wallet and if possible turn of the Pay later option. I had the Pay later option, i don’t what advantage the hacker would have taken from it.

Beware Dimers. Transfer your Gift cards or spend it, don’t store it until Flipkart improves the security

Update

I can’t. I have no longer access to that account.

My Email and Mobile number both has been changed. No way to recover it from my side

I don’t share with anyone, where and how much credit i have.

But the person to whom the account was transferred mentioned he received a call from a international number asking otp from him.

The person who received the call is lying, he himself is the hacker. You should lodge an FIR with your local cyber crime cell of the police, mentioning the changed mobile number and email. Send a scanned copy of fir to flipkart to block the new number account.

Seems your account hacked using some phishing technique where you might have clicked some unknown link and some script executed on your device.Immediately file report in cyber cell.

Flipkart is worst… it is blocking genuine accounts… and email and number both can be changed if we have password to that account… Happened same with one of my friend… Fk gave back access to account but with pay later balance used, and orders were done in WB, UP, BH… Fk gave FK pay later option to people who dont need it. Very bad support, dont know how to contact them…

I am just waiting for a resolution from Flipkart about it. After that, I will file complain against that person.

Same. I didn’t receive any OTP from Flipkart for Mobile number change, just an SMS that my number is changed. And the mobile number I received in SMS is from Bihar.

Worst Security

Btw when i called him, i told him that i have already registered the Cyber crime complain, so he called me back 2-3 different numbers because of some network issues..

If he is the hacker he is no safe anymore

even Amazon doesn’t i think.

and frustrated or disgruntled support staff and/or scam artists in their own functions like account handling team can do such things with help of few others!
