Paytm chief Vijay Shekhar Sharma is willing to pay 10 times the monthly subscription fee of Twitter Blue if the social media giant can fast-track the blocking of fake accounts impersonating the real Paytm customer care handle.
This afternoon, the Paytm founder and CEO flagged one such fake account pretending to Paytm customer care on Twitter handle. The Twitter handle “@KritiSh65439316” has been running with the username “Paytm Customer Care” and using the Paytm logo as its profile picture. The account has even been responding to Paytm customers on the microblogging platform.
In one such post, the fake Paytm account urged a Twitter user to share his phone number via direct message. It went on to provide a “secondary number” for one Kirti Sharma.
Paytm’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma responded to the fake account’s tweet, tagging new Twitter owner Elon Musk.
