They deducted her net worth that counts 215k and left a sum of 2k for her which haunted her feelings.

According to her claim, she narrated that the fraudulent activity happened on 5th October 2021 on teachers day when she was serving her own part as a civil servant.

She noticed the trauma and invaded GTB bank with her complaint and found out that her money has been used to purchase recharge card from Jumia.

In her words, she narrated:

“I asked for the number used in purchasing the recharge cards but was told that they did not have the power to release the customer’s details.”

“In my GTB app, I saw that my balance remained N2,000 and I was also seeing a booked balance of N215,000 indicating that the money had been removed from my account because of an ongoing transaction.”

“It was later I started receiving debit alerts for transactions I never initiated. The recharge cards were purchased at N10,000, N50,000 in four places, and N5,000, making N215,000. A banker at the GTB head office told me that the first debit of N10,000 was used to test if my money could be withdrawn.”

“I later received the debit alerts on October 7 and 8 for transactions done on the 4th and 5th. I did not give anyone OTP or initiate any transaction requiring OTP. Surprisingly, I saw seven OTPs I never initiated on my phone, but I was home alone and never received any call or gave anyone OTPs, so how was the transaction completed?” she narrated.
