Taxify Denies Being Hacked As Frenzy Hits Social Media


Yesterday, social media was abuzz following claims that the Bolt app had been hacked and customers who have their card details on there were being debited.

The transport app has now issued a statement to that regard which reads thus;

“We can assure that Bolt’s systems have not been hacked, nor has customer payment information been compromised.

“Bolt’s payment processor in Nigeria has confirmed that the problem was on the local acquirer bank’s side, and is not a case of multiple debts. The debit alerts that customers received were valid but were delayed transactions for Bolt rides taken during the weekend of 13th and 14th September. The transactions were debited to cardholders only yesterday due to a delay in processing. Mostly Mastercard holders were impacted.
