The Mobikwik leak is real. Here is what the dump had for me. One of those credit cards was valid until a couple weeks ago, and I don’t recall authorizing Mobikwik to save it. Companies that lie like ???? ought to be taken to the cleaners.

Some of my data is there. In fact even the exact date for the creation of my mobikwik account, in 2013, is there.
Thankfully, it’s an old expired card mentioned, because I only used mobikwik that one time.
Some, if not all, user data has leaked Bipin.
