Nigerians have been warned of the new trick fraudsters are now using to steal money from people's accounts.
A Nigerian man has warned people to be vigilant after a fake 'customer care agent' withdrew N500,000 from his father's account.
He took to Nairaland to share the story and wrote:
"Can Money Sent To Fraudsters Be Gotten Back?
My dad called me recently to tell me about how he was defrauded. He told me that a guy called him and told him that he is a customer care personnel from the bank he uses and that his account has some issues, so he was asked to send his details which he did.
After sending it, they started transferring the money in the account to another account and he had to rush to a POS stand to transfer the rest to his other account. They had transferred close to #500,000 before he was able to do this.
So, I'm here to ask if anybody has experienced this and has been able to retrieve his/her money."
Please any reasonable advice is welcomed and please no insults.
