Reason Why You Should Not Install Spoof Paytm On Your Phone

Installing any pack from outside the Playstore is a risky process. These apps could collect personal information and then share the same with a third party. Not just that, they could also hack your smartphone and steal money using online tools.

We have done this testing so that you don’t have to suffer. Hence, only install apps from Google Play Store and do not download and install APKs from third-party websites. The Spoof APK is around 10MB in size, and it has a custom icon.

Will Be Considered As Financial Fraud

Trying to cheat someone with the Spoof Paytm app will be considered a financial fraud, which will land you in jail if reported to the police. If you are on the receiving end, then make sure that you get a money credit message from your bank when someone sends money using online services like Paytm or Google Pay.

To prevent any sort of missuse, we will not be sharing the Spoof Paytm APK or how you can download and install the same on your smartphone. Even if you find the APK think twice before installing, as it could brick your device. Next, when someone asks you for an OTP, do not share details like OTP or CVV code with anyone, which can be used to steal money from your bank account.
