  1. This same thing happened to me account officer was steadily stealing money from my account till it got to 800k and he was sending me fake statement of account cos I was out of the country at the time till I got in touch with someone at the banks head office to check my account balance and found out the truth and confronted the thief,he didn’t deny and started begging that he has problems.i could’ve reported to the police and ruin his life but I told him to pay me jeje and he paid 400k and I left him.He did it to someone else and is in jail now.

    1. He may not have had any problem..its just greed

    2. How do you know who your account officer is please. I need to know mine.

    3. @ Tenth
      Go your bank customers service, they will tell you

      Mine was one sexy hot dude in Gtbank

  2. Why transfer from customers account when you can apply for loan from your bank?

    I'm suspecting that most BVN SMS messages are from bankers

    And they are always quick to point at Yahoo boys

  3. some of this 419 bank stories we hear are actually perpetrated by bankers

  4. Nothing we will not hear o.yjis too bad

  5. These acts happen in the UK too. They steal from very wealthy people. Transfer the money to people's account and ask the people to go withdraw it immediately and they cut you your share. Yoruba people in London are the ones doing this.

    I was offered to send my bank details so they can put money in it so I can withdraw it immediately. I said thank you, I'm not a greedy human. My yoruba friend made thousands of pounds through this.

  6. That's why Sterling bank came up with one stupid internet banking platform that can't enable you carry out transactions only but as from 8am-4pm Mondays till Fridays weekend! All in the name that some yahoo boys stole someone's millions a few weeks ago.....when the fraud was probably an insider's job....
