Man Calls Out Bolt (Taxify) For 'Stealing' From Him, Threatens To Sue by Amagite(m): 2:07pm On Apr 12, 2019
A Nigerian man, Deriano, has taken to Twitter to call out Bolt (Taxify), for 'stealing' from him.

According to him, they have consistently debited money from his account for over a month now, even when he doesn't use their service.

He has now threatened to sue after he woke up to another debit alert from them this morning, even after he removed his card and deleted the app.

He shared the story alongside screenshots of his bank debits. See below...

"@Boltapp_ng Taxify or Bolt or whatever you call your scam shitty brand now. My God, I’m so mad. One month ago you guys consistently stole money from my linked debit card up to 13k, I ignored because I couldn’t go through all that stress of contacting your customer care.

THREAD!

Last week i recieved 6 different debit alerts up to 8k for no reason. Now, i became worried and i couldn’t ignore this time. I have sent Emails, Dms and Replies for a week now, no response. And @Boltapp_ng have been posting tweets on their timeline and ignoring all my messages.

To even think I ditched my @UberNigeria app for this scam company?

A reputable company would have a working phone number that is relevant and active for customer support and services. But your line has been purportedly switched off over a week now.

Again this morning I woke up to another debit alert from @Boltapp_ng even after I removed my card and deleted the app.
Now I’m disgusted! And I’m taking it further to another level. Since we are all mad in this country and nothing in Nigeria is done appropriately and efficiently.

I’m definitely going to court to file a lawsuit on Monday. I don’t need my refunds anymore. We have been so neglected and frustrated to be Nigerians that our rights and interests don’t matter to these foreign companies. I will sue @Boltapp_ng so help me God.

I can’t be the only one going through the disgruntlement and incompetence of this company @Boltapp_ng

So sad Nigeria is going down this low! No iota of trust again.

Even glo is doing me something similar. Glo is one brand that steal mercilessly from you and still punish you with poor service supply.

I believe if he's serious about suing, he might actually win.

On a more serious note, don't give out your debit or credit card details to anyone or any company, if dem no dey collect cash dats der own biz. angry Thieves everywhere.

Possible guess, he used her card to book a ride on his friend's phone/app and he forgot to delete the card.

Then his friend is using the app to book rides with card payment, not knowing that it's another person's card.

The system isn't working. These companies believe they can do anything and get away with it because Nigeria is already flawed in all ramifications

He should just move all his funds to another functional account The greatest mistake anybody could make is link a debit card to a major account.

Dude might have downloaded a clone app...

Anyways, I have trust issues even with my bank. sometimes I don't trust the ATM I always count my money thrice after withdrawal... first count is because I don't trust the machine, 2nd count is because I don't trust those I met there, 3rd count is because I don't trust myself.

Reason why I stopped using my card for any services online... No one can be trusted in Nigeria... A trusted organization today can turn out to be scam tomorrow...
This is inhuman and unacceptable...follow right channels to clear this bro.

I did but to uber and before I book a ride, I always choose to pay cash to the driver at the end of the trip instead of paying with card. Anytime I'm overseas, I book uber ride too or Lyft and enjoy the only available option which is card payment. I'm always confident I won't be duped because the system work seamlessly over there. The law too is effective

After reading your experience, I just went to remove my card sharp sharp. To avoid stories that provoke.

But I'd still leave it on uber. Uber is more trustworthy and legit.
