In related news, a young Nigerian lady has cried out about a huge sum of money that was deducted from her bank account by fraudsters.
She said more than N4 million was transferred from her account without her authorisation in separate transactions.
According to her, the first amount of N3.7 million was transfered from her account to another bank and moments later N222,900 was also transferred to the same account.
She said it did not end there because shortly after, another N102,000 was also deducted, leaving only N12k balance in the account.
The customer, who said she is a former employee of the bank, said it was on her staff account that the fraudulent transaction happened.
She called on her bank to return to the money and said that her card was not stolen or misplaced and she visited the receiving bank to file a complaint but was told that the money has been removed from the account.
She said that if her money is not refunded she will visit the bank and cause a scene because she does not have any other money.
Meanwhile, she recently gave an update that the bank was able to recover more than N3million of the money and about N800,000 was still outstanding.
