  1. The way fraud is increasing eh. People take advantage of every opportunity… Whether employment….fraud must enter……

  2. I think we should star saving our money at home because from the looks of it, bank is no longer safe for saving.

    I know you might ot permit this post.

  3. I don’t understand why some people has failed to understand that we all are stuck in this hard time. Why trying to extort the little people have, it is not Fair at all.

  4. The bank will never ask for bvn, pin mobile app activation code, OTP or password etc as it is already known to the Bank via its database.
    How many illiterate customers know this. This information should be given at the point of account opening. And even give them the likely numbers that can call them if need be.

    If this is done, the customer already has an idea of the implication of giving out such information.
