Dear fellow indians,

Please dont open your account with airtel payment bank because it is a complete scam. Here i am telling you why it is a scam.

Couple of days ago i deposited my funds near about 3500rs to pay to a merchant but when i am trying to pay him i always got an error transaction failed. Then i tried to reverse my amount back to where it was debited again i got the same issue i. E. I can't transfer those fund to anywhere.

Then i tried to call customer support but now you cant call to them as well because they have removed their no. From everywhere.

Remember guys i already updated my e-kyc on airtel app but when i reached to airtel store the executive was saying your e-kyc is not approved and as of now we cannot approve your kyc by my end as well, then i asked why they have no answer for that and he continuously forcing me to go some-other airtel store, i wandered why he is pushing me to go somewhere else when he himself cant help me out. He was saying me to use these funds for dth, mobile reacharge else my money will remain in the wallet their is no way to take that money out from airtel wallet.

So guys dont get into this trap. Airtel payment bank is complete a scam, no support, no call back, no issue resolution. Once you put your hard earned money in airtel's wallet you forget to take it back. I lost my money but i dont want you people to lost your money.

These people are looting common man's hard earned money.
