GrabCar / account suspension

1 singapore, Singapore Review updated:
Contact information:

Grab suspended my account without giving any specific reason. I dont even know how and why I got banned by Grab simply said validity of booking on email. I make more than 20 to 40 booking per month for myself. Even for my family and friends.
Ask me to justify my case? Are you kidding?
So this is the very specific way of how you solve the problem? So unprofessional. I expected more detail from you before I justify.
I am so willing to share with the rest.

    Agree!
    it is their new habit to just simply suspend somebody's account for no reasons. we as users have every right to know why the heck they suspended our account! instead, they ask us to justify ourselves without giving us a valid reason!.
    Im thinking to bring this consumer tribunal. it's about time we have to fight for our right

    @NA Yes you are right. My account was being suspended due to a nasty passenger's complaint. Grab supporting centre called but never spare a thought for me. Eventually they still been rude to me and even bring out more complaints against me.

    This is really stupid, Grab also suspended my account. I bought a new phone and tried to install Grab on my new phone and logged into my account. Suddenly i got a message that my account is suspended due to abnormal activity, I was asked to appeal online by the customer care, 3 weeks after i did appeal i got a message that my account will remain in suspended state. Grab is fooling its customer with this, There should be a complaint raised against Grab for this.

    @Vaibhav1683 Same to me, try to install grab app on my 2nd phone and got suspended. WTF. Still no reply from Grab. They should have verification with original account before suspended the account. Nowadays it is become normal people have 2 or more mobile devices. Grab should allow user to choose which device they want to use.

    Hi everyone, Im sharing the same sentiments. This past few weeks my account has been suspended as well for no reason as well. I tried to appeal many times and called their contact center to raise this concern. But, they didn't even try to reactive my account. They've advised me that my account has been related to gaming the system. seriously? I've been a Grabcar user/customer for more than a year already with a Gold status, I asked for proof and they're telling me that my account has been connected to multiple accounts. which I was not aware of at all. Crazy right? I asked to re investigate but their quality control team are plain stupid and didn't consider my explanation nor appeal with this case. I really hate how there customer service and process goes. Thinking that they just celebrated their anniversary here in the Philippines. What a company with full of dissatisfied peers and clients. It better to choose Uber than team. By the way this goes, hope your company pulls out of the country or the government reprimand your wrong doings.

    I can relate to this issue, and understand it completely as I have experienced this myself. My account got deactivated without any notification whatsoever. I topped my account up with IDR 200, 000 and used to promo code to get IDR 100, 000 free. I only used my account once after that and I only spent about IDR 25, 000, after which, my account was deactivated. I called their customer service helpline several times for a month but I was either kept on hold for a very long time or they answered the call but never uttered a word (kept silent the whole time no matter what we said). I even visited their main office today and I got nothing in return. The staff came and vaguely said things none of which made sense. It was almost as though they just wanted to kick us out of there.

    This is a very unprofessional behavior from them. I regret downloading the app and putting money in it. Gojek (another app like Grab in Indonesia) is much better. I have never had any kind of problem from them and I think that everyone using Grab in Indonesia should switch to gojek.

    My account has been suspended 30 minutes after I paid 1000.00 pesos for Grab Pay. This is so unfair in my part coz they won't make any refunds and i cannot use my own money anymore for my taxi fare everyday. This is like scamming. They should have given us a warning and let us give our explanation before the suspension. Forget about the double reward points when you use Grab Pay rather pay in cash for every trip. Look what will happened to my grab credit for 1000 pesos ??????

    Hi, i also recently faced the same situation as u guys. But i got them to unsuspend my account within 1 day! So here is the tip, all you have to do is just be demanding, fierce and intimidating to the manager. P.S. u should actually speak to the manager and not to the customer service officer as the customer service officer WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. So here's my point, request their IO team to take immediate action and must be done by today. Also, u must have a very firm and loud voice or else they will not get things done for u quickly. And yea that's it just hope that this tip works for u guys.

    I am very disappointed with Grab. I transfer my grab account on my new phone and suddenly it says that my account is suspended. I did fill up the form that they gave me 2 days ago but then today they send me a text saying that my account will be deactivated. I really want to know why would they do that, I tried to contact them on messenger and I told them about it but they say ''Upon reviewing your account, kindly be informed that your account has been permanently deactivated. Therefore, please be advised that you are unable to appeal on your account status. We will not be able to assist you further on any inquiries pertaining to the reactivation of your account. As the action taken has been finalized by the respective department. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and hope this clarifies. Thank you'' and I asked them again about what was my mistake but they haven't replied me. So disappointing .

    My Grab account was suspended because apparently I booked/pinned a wrong location. The driver was very understanding that he just dropped me off at the next stop.

    After 3 days, my account was suspended because apparently, I did not pay for my fare. Why did just Grab suspended my account without even reaching me out to know what happened? I am a PLATINUM member, which means I am a regular grab passenger.

    Tried calling Grab Hotline, after waiting for 15 minutes. The agent just told me that I should log my explanation using my Grab App and processing time is 5 days. WHAT? 5 days?

    Dear Grab, you need to put a change location in your app (like UBER) so that if the passenger incorrectly pin a location, they can just change the location.

    Also, please be more considerate in checking if the passenger is a regular user or not...
