    1. Hmmm these guys re so pathetic.

      This made me remember the world famous "John Edoche of GT" who cornered GTbank's money, that was 010/2011. They couldn't apprehend him but he was always online on Facebook.
      this episode is for another day joor

      I wonder how he's doing now.

  4. Most bankers are thieves in corporate uniforms. Money that is not yours? They must have studied that customer to know they dont check their accounts. Tomorrow they will be the envy of their colleagues meanwhile na ndi ori ka fa bu. One billion naira!

  6. And they say there's no money in the country.

  7. I dont know what is happening but this is so rampant in Zenith especially. Benin branches way back used to be the main thieves. Their staff can divert customer funds eh. Because of that, no bank staff stays for more than 6months in a branch. That way they dont get too comfortable in a branch. They have relaxed in that form of security. This is the end result.

    1. Yes o. I know of a staff who stole in Benin some months back. They are all thieves.

    2. Nigerian bankers and insurers they are all theives oh! (Well, not all. But most). They are usually used to divert funds from organisations and sealing accounts. When I see people struggling to work in bank, I laugh. Honesty can HARDLY get you far in the banking industry. Exception you have personal connects. My dad and elder sis had to leave. My dad left because they were trying to get his hands dirty, and hes a christian. Left after about 11yrs to float his own company. This was in the 90s oh! Where there was no e-banking. So I can imagine now. My sis worked in about 5 nigerian banks. There was one that she uncovered a fraud her first week of resumption. As an over sabi that she IS nau.... she turned detective. Na so them frustrate her for that head office oh. She no last there pass one year. She quickly ported to another bank. When that particular bank crashed everyone's mouth remained open.
      This 1bn is small. Come and hear money that bankers divert. Some even bribe the forces and share the money to cover case. Let me stop here

  8. Lately it seems the banking sector is filled with thieves.
    Just last month an idiot from gtb withdrew money from my cousins account without authorisation,maybe she felt d owner of the account was dead or something cos the deposits were always being made into the account but never withdrawn.
    The branch manager wanted the situation swept under but when he saw we weren't a push over,they pleaded with us and promised to be paying 300k every month till the money is complete.
    Anyway,the thieving lady lost her job cos we demanded so.
    Before then though,she came pleading saying how her mom was ill hence she was forced to do so.
    Told her to keep quiet joor...she isn't the only one that has got one issue or the other

    2. You don't mean it!!!
      I called gtb once as my token got blocked and I was out of the country. So I called with the foreign number. The customer service officer asked for my email. I told him. He said there were two emails on my account (which is true cos I used my uni email to open the account when I opened, and npw changed it to an official email when I wanted to use as my salary account). So I mentioned both emails. Then he said he will switch to the official mail.
      But do you know that since then, I've been receiving scam emails from gtb to that my old mail. Email will say : click here to switch your account to the original email. But as a thief that I IS I will just check the email address and see that it's not from gtb. It appears like GT but when you click, another name will pop up: sola@eportal.com or something stupid like that.
      I know that customer service officer is behind this. But do I have proof?

      Delete
    3. Yes you have proof. That silly account officer should be apprehended.

      Otherwise,request for a change of account officer and that wish will be fulfilled.

    4. @Elena, go to EFCC and lay a petition to them. They re very good at such.

      Request for a statement of your account as evidence to back your claim.

      Delete
    5. Princess I can't remember his name. It was over the phone. But i will request for a change. Although i dont keep more than 20-50k there at every point in time. Best i can do is forward the mail to gtb let them see what's going on. Although they keep sending warning mails about fraud so that's okay on their part

  17. What do you expect when Zenith Bank slashed salaries 2 months ago all in the name of Tax and whatnot.
    The bank should expect more of this, if you pay Peanuts, then expect your staff to be monkeys.

    Disclosure: I am a "Pally". those who understand will.

    2. If you want to save money use Union Bank and UBA them. Even First Bank or Wema.

  20. You steal N1b and u still come back to work? Which kind mumu dey worry you?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @ELENA(HER MAJESTY)..its obvious that the branch manager of your cousin's bank knew about that withdrawal. Else WHY would he or she be begging for the person. WHY would he or she beg to pay back the money in instalments! Honestly! That matter should go to the Head Office Immediately! Cos am sure more of such activities will be uncovered in that branch. Please you will be saving other depositors by reporting the incident officially at the Head Office. Thank you.

    1. True head office works. One time my same gt was debited 112k,after them don pay salary on Friday. My true balance was okay. But my available balance was less than 112k. Only for me to call customer service. They say I tried to buy stuff onine. Called one website. I say na lie oh. Na so them block the card immediately. This was Sunday evening. Monday morning I went straight the head office. Luckily I met a nice woman. Within 7 days the money was refunded. In tranches oh. Like 34, 25, bla bla. Since then, I don't play with that gt account. Gt has dealt with me ehn only that their services are fast for transfers. As e fast, na so fraud plenty.

  27. Ecobank debited my account like twice without sending smsalert by the time I wanted to withdraw using atm,I couldn't believe my balance.I asked for my statements and behold I saw the two trasactions I didn't do each with transactions code. The branches kept referring me to the head office. The man I spoke to in the head office after presenting him my statements and informing to check those transactions actually was on his computer for a while checking I assumed before he told me I shouldn't bother since I have removed my money already! When I insisted he said the man that handles such is not on seat. I should come back.
