ZimboCash has been down for more than a week and users of the platform were unable to transact during this time. We reached out to ZimboCash and they gave this response:
“We had a few scam attempts on our network. We needed to temporarily take the payments service down while we patch the scam account loophole.
We had originally been relying on cellphones as a proxy for identity – we were notified that some people were able to buy up to 150 SIM cards at a time to scam the system.
Unfortunately it always is just a few individuals who spoil it for the others.
We’re busy working on the identity alternatives.”
ZimboCash did not give a date as to when payments will resume or a time frame as to how long it will take for them to finish the upgrades.
