A Nigerian man, Mohammed Olalekan Jamiu, has raised an alarm after mistakenly transferring the sum of N200,000 to someone who refused to return the money.
The guy known as @fikkybadmane on Twitter, he discovered that the person who received the money, Udochukwu Festus Eleberi withdrew everything without delay.
According to the entrepreneur, he offered the recipient N20,000 to send N180,000 back to him and he agreed at first but later reneged.
Mohammed said he had been calling the person’s number but he kept hanging up and the financial institution confirmed that he had withdrawn the whole N200k.
He shared a screenshot of the transaction and wrote; “Mistakenly sent 200k to this person now. I called and offered him 20,000 from the money. He agreed at first & now he is hanging up every sec.
I Called Opay CS it was confirmed he withdrew all the funds immediately. Twitter do your thing. his phone number..”

A banker who was sacked and arrested for alleged fraud, has confessed to “mistakenly” using a bank customer’s ATM card to withdraw cash five times.
The suspect, Uchenna Emmanuel spoke while being paraded by the Ondo State Police Command in Akure, the state capital.
He claimed to have made withdrawals from the account five times to purchase an undisclosed product to the tune of 35,000 naira.
The ex-banker said the POS machine given to him for the transaction was compromised which was the reason he easily carried out the fraud without the use of a Personal Identification Number.
Uchenna said: “I mistakenly used the customer’s card to buy things from a company. I thought it was my card. The manager later found the card with me and I was sacked immediately.
“They asked me how I knew the customer’s PIN, I said I used my PIN. They brought other POS and a policeman also tried his ATM card. The transaction was successful. I used the customer’s card five times.”
