People say If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

This illustrates the narration of a young man, Obazie Sunday who spoke with us on how he went to a bank (name withheld) on June 5, 2018 to deposit a sum of N167,000 but he was credited with N1,670,000.

Obazie was shocked to see the credit alert and he immediately thought about transferring part of the money off his account.

Not long he got a call from his bank begging him to transfer the sum he’d transferred off the account so they can initiate a reversal.

However, they say Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching, Obazie didn’t hesitate to transfer the money back to his account.

What did his bank do to him afterwards?

Read his narration below:-

Early this month, June 5, 2018

I went to the bank,(name withheld) to deposit 167000. I did the normal transaction and left.

Hours later, i saw an alert of 1,670,000. I was shocked and was tensed, because i have never handled that sum before. I thought it was a dummy sum, so i transferred 500,000 out ,to my other account.

I confided in a school bro, who told me to await the bank call, and told me not to tell anyone else.When i got home(8-9pm), i got a call from a banker there.

He said it was a mistake,and i should transfer the money to an account he would provide. My mind drifted to bankers siphoning money ,and i told him i’d rather come see the bank manager the following day.

He gave the bank manager the phone or i’d rather say a man who claimed to be the bank manager.

He said i should transfer the money, of which i bluntly refused ,and decided to go to their head office. I hung up,and switched off my phone ,to stop their incessant calls.

Then the next day, the banker called me, and pleaded that they could not balance their books, because of the fund in my account. And he said they did sack them, before 12:00pm if they dont.

I knw about the labour market, and how difficult it is to get jobs. So i told him i’d return the 500,000 which i transferr

I knw it wasnt scam or fraud bacause i did not transfer the money. They unfroze my account , so i could send and recieve cash. They also used the bank reversal technique.

I thought i was given the 4000 as a way of compensating me tho. So.i just transferred the 171,000 out of the account.

The next week or probably friday, cash was sent to the account, so i went to the bank to cash it out.

When i got there, they were just looking at mend the only thing i heard them say was”that is the boy”. Not even a soul came to say thank you.

I was not mad ,and i thought they saw no need in saying thank you, since they already said it in cash.

I withdrew the money from the bank, and when they wanted to give me the money, the “bank manager” told the cashier to take the 4000 out of it..

I was now given the balance.. I was very mad tho, but being an introvert, i was cool and i left the bank.I transferred over a million naira back, and a thank you was not given.

I was hurt, because then i had needs and wants. But i was not tempted to use the money.

Even if it happens again, i will not hesitate to be that good person.

“YOU CAN MAKE IT LEGALLY
“YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD”

“BE GOOD”

No thanks to his Mauritanian English, I got confused in the end part of his story.

Why do we always have this sense of entitlement whenever we do some good?

You saw extra cash in your account that wasn't yours. Why not raise an alarm immediately? Did you have to transfer 500k out first, and wait till evening and blah blah blah? undecided

The truth is, you wouldn't have returned it if they didn't come for you. That makes you no different from a thief. And I support them for not giving a simple "thank you" not to talk of money sef grin

Without being prejudiced, i would say it's wrong to do a favor / help and expect cash or profit in return

The bank made mistake and you rectified it for them

Knowing you did a good thing should be enough joy for you

This guy ehn. Your narration shows you are a dishonest person who doesn't really value integrity that much.

You only transferred the money as a last resort. So if they hadn't impressed it on you that they would get sacked you would've turned deaf ear to their pleas and spent the cash you never worked for?

What were you actually expecting? A statue commissioned by Okorocha?

My friend go and siddon

Funny thing is if they had actually got sacked,they know your name, know your address and can easily track you down. Then we will now have another case of murder-suicide gracing fp

Anybody who returns another person's money or item because of potential benefit or threat is no better than a thief. It is the same mentality that go that lagos Iphone ransom corper into trouble. You either be a real thief or return other people's property with a clean heart.
This guy deserves condemnation.

Food for thought

By the way, thanks to all the kind Nairalanders who read through all that and got to the essence of the story with their comments.

You are the real heroes in this drama...
