Requesting everybody to delete your simpl account immediately.Large no of simpl accounts are getting hacked from last 2-3 days and unauthorised transaction of 10 K to 20K are being done without customer consent.

Check their twitter page,if you don't believe me.Some users also lodged Police FIR.

I thought those users shared OTP in one way or other, or am I wrong?

Is there any way to temporarily deactivate?

There is option of 'delete account'. So, if we want to use it in future, it won't be available.

It must be the otp, users shared their otp (i know they are denying for obvious reasons) , and using otp one can login to ur account easily and can perform n number of transactions till it has  limit.

:

-Bnpl are riskier only for these reasons:-

1.No location verification.

2.no unusual activity detection.

3.no transaction suspects

4. Poor or no live support.

5. No two step verification

6- no otp verification for payments.

6th point is biggest risk. Bnpl and wallet both have this risk. Once you link account further transactions dose not need any otp - sim verification Or location verification.

Twitter is full of hacking complaints.  I did one last money rotation to Paytm fastag, paid and raised a request to delete my account.

Same for me too.. within a week I've got simpl otp for zomato transaction twice. When I tried to login to simpl it is asking for kyc process, which means I don't hold account in this new simpl pay later.

I also don't have simpl account, but received the zomato otp sms. I am wondering if there is any link with the recent news of hdfc data hack.

And also in that OTP sms, there's no getsimpl help link ...so I suspect that this fake zomato transaction also sent by fraudsters to make us create accounts to carryon the actual frauds in future

Yesterday i got this sms. What to do now. I am not sure about active simpl a/c.

SIMPL never calls for OTP. DO NOT SHARE it with anyone.

Authorize your Zomato purchase using OTP: ****

I never ever created an account on simpl.

But last week I received an otp from simpl (for payment on zomato).

I reported this to simpl on twitter and via mail.

To my surprise,

I was told that the account was temporarily blocked.

And I was like, wtf?
I could you deactivate an account which was never created by me.
OR
Was it that someone fraudulently created a simpl account using my number.
I gave an RBI threat and immediately received a call from them.

In simpl an account gets created even if one uses your number for payment even by mistake.

(without otp)
