A Nigerian Instagram user has cried out as he revealed the new method used to wipe money from people’s bank account.
According to him, his phone was stolen and the whole money in his account was wiped out!
1. Just a week ago, I boarded a bus at
Obanikoro heading for Costain/Orile, highlighted at Ojuelegba, on
getting past the traffic light, I became conscious of the fact that my
phone was missing. I dialed my number and it kept ringing & ringing
till it was switched off. I kept faith and was hoping for a possible
reunion but that was the biggest mistake of my life.
in the day I dialed my number and it rang, I was glad thinking the
fellow had removed my sim from my phone and inserted it into another
phone just to get to me but after 3 trials without picking, switched off
was all I heard(my android phone is passworded,so its either my phone
was formatted or sim inserted into another phone that made the ringing
possible after it was switched off prior to this time, I should have
known). Then I became worried but still kept faith, stupidest mistake.
in a bus heading home, I decided to use the phone of the passenger who
was right next to me so as to tell my parents I’m phoneless cos they’d
be worried for sure, only for me to be told he faced similar situation
& had his account emptied using his number, then it dawned on me
that they could have been transacting at the time my phone was ringing
I got home & ran to the nearest ATM
machine, on seeing my balance my face dropped, they had emptied my
account. Didn’t know when I bursted into tears, seeing yourself loose
money you worked hard for to a total stranger is not what I will wish
even an enemy. I wept at that ATM stand for almost 20mins till I was
able to gather strength home, I thank God for taking me home cos I still
don’t get how I crossed that Ikorodu Expressway seeing 2 oncoming
heavily loaded tankers barefooted.
I’m not afraid of starting all over but I’m just scared someone else might not take it as light as I did.
I’m using this medium to bring everyone to alertness. Be conscious of
