Yesterday, Bolt had Nigerians severely complaining about multiple debit alerts received for trips they took in the past, which spun a theory that the ride-hailing company had been hacked. Apparently, only customers whose bank cards were linked to the app were affected, instigating an uproar online. The statement from the Bolt Twitter account, though, dispelled the reports that the company had been hacked, saying it doesn’t store credit card data and that it was their payment partners experiencing some issues.
