I hate thieves. Just like my friends roomie back in da day,this one was a kleptomaniac. She could steal anything ranging from panties ,to phone case,to face powder to someone else's recommended contact lenses.

Problem - she a kleptomanic
Solved - lace the contact lens with some g. Pepper

Some hardworking graduates are not even earning that much as take-home pay each month and a university undergraduate feels he has the right to such largesse! Quite unfortunate. His punishment would be the stigma and humiliation he faced which was even tame compared to some stories I have heard in other schools.
May God help his case.

I doubt if he wanted to poison him. This kind of thief does not have the mind to do beyond petty stealing, hell he couldn't even return the ATM cards after using them. He probably wanted to clear his conscience by giving the guy a treat.

I doubt muder is not on his mind. Wit all d gory tales we hear everyday,how a frnd killed anoda frnd for just #100 and u tink dat wicked human being wont mind wasting d guy just to cover tracks?! U r yet to come to terms wit d times we r in and d heart of men.

You are an IT person and you still use the same pin for mere phone lock and something as serious as ATM Guy, u fu3k upp, big time. Thank your stars that that your roomie is a learner, jambite thief. Meanwhile, I guess he didn't want to kill you but may be looking for a way to monitor you to drop off the cards or distract you from thinking he is the culprit. All in all, pity him. This isn't far from his upbringing or poverty.

Re: How My Roommate Stole 120,000 Naira From My ATM Card And How I Caught Him by smartdude1(m): 9:01pm On Mar 25, 2015
Okay, after reading this story I got inspired to share mine. I went to a school in the village for my waec where there will be enough bullet (expo) for waec cheesy cheesy so luckily for me I met a student from my former school in the new school too. We were not friends in my former school ohh...but since he was the only familiar face around we became friends like bread and butter...we were always together all the time. So one day I checked my bag and found out my wallet was missing. This happened in 2008. In my wallect I had 6,000 cos some how I inflated my school fees cos it was like 1/10 of what I used to pay in my former school so my father did not bother to pay sef..hahhaah.. and 1 fake cold chain that I was using to feel fly then. so I was confused and didnt know what to do as I am new to the school...the system etc. I dont know people characters...I dont know who or who not to suspect or who to trust sef. I finally broke the news to my classmates ...most of them sympatized with me wished me luck. one of my mates told me to forget about the money that since the history of that school nobody has lost money and found it. I begged and begged they person to bring back the money but to no avail....that my friend helped me to beg too..but it all fell on deaf ears.
Some people suggested bible rotation to me that it works...blah blah blah ...hahahaha...that was the first time I heard such. Does it really work??
Unfortunately for me, the school authorities sent students owing school fees home to go and get their fees, so I know I needed to act before any body goes home. After lunch on that fateful day as all the boys entered the hostel we locked it and began searching. Some already wanted to go before the searching sef and that my friend told me that I should suspect those trying to go that they are trying to runaway with the money etc. We searched this hostel from top to bottom and nothing was found. I was just at my corner confused not knowing what to do. So it occurred to me that its just that my friends belongings that have not been searched because he was the one making sure every other person was searched. before I forget this my friend had suggested to me earlier to take me to a native doctor and find the thief...that I should not worry he will pay for the transport and the native doctors fare cos I was now broke. But as a Christian I decided to stick with God and besides I was too afraide. So as God will have it one spirit told me to go and search him...so as I was approaching his corner he was blocking me and asked me where I was going that I should be worried about other people, I insisted I searched him and after much hesitation from him he finally allowed me... as a fellow sharp guy that I am too....my formal school was notorious in bad things so I know how criminals think....not that I am among them, God knows I have never stolen in my life. So I looked at this boys bed looked to see if it was sliced open cos from experience thats where they hide money in my formal school....the bed was intact...I looked at the pillow I saw an opening ...at that time I was already wondering whether my wallet was inside...lo and bebold I put my hand inside and I found my wallet.
I didnt know what to do at first, I just brough my hand out without the wallet cos I didnt want to expose my friend. But as I went back in my corner I couldn't take it...I told myself that there was no need to protect this guy if he could do this to me...so I called some leaders In the class and told them to call off the search that I have seen the wallet...they insisted I told them who had it....so I told them it was inside my friends pillow. they went straight brought out the wallet from my friends pillow...immediately he began shouting my enemies ohh...my enemies ohh... that the wallet was planted in his pillow. Before I knew it, my class mates had already brought out like 10 pices of strong cane and started chanting victory songs. They thanked me for helping them catch the thief that has been terrorising them since....mean while I was just like 2 months in the school. They flogged this boy black and blue that day and due to the noise, our principal came out and took over the situation. I was suspended for 2wks for keeping big money in the hostel. I went to my formal school and claimed I came to visit...uptil today my parents did not know I was suspended. My friend was expelled from the school, dough he was allowed to come and write waec as external student. The funniest thing is that I still remained friends with that boy sef cos he was now staying off campus...hahahha...off hostel joor and had access to stove and can cook so me and some other friends do sneek out of school to his house and cook and eat and enjoy. But I always had a watching eye on him. Moral of the story...na hu sabi yhu fit kill yhu

Block your yahoo mail or NL account?

other alternatives to use: They could
send a code to your phone number if
you can't remember the answer(s) to

Use a system, then.. I can't tell of other
smart phones but my Z10 offers me

Try taking a lil of your time to think..
It helps, sometimes...

I had more money there,they blocked the card sharply and confirmed my balance...then called GTB connect..my credit finish, dem still dey Play music for my ear.. Loaded another card, credit finish again, until I tried again....point is..GTB can delay for africa..quoting the OP..he said they answered him after 40mins.....yet people talk about. old generation banks being slow...not forgetting to add that, First bank gave me a new ATM card and new pin same day I applied...however GTB will ask you to come back 1week later,but deduct the ATM card charge even before you fill the form finish...

JohnnySarz, why roommates with such money? Can't you use that to rent a place for yourself alone? Why nurturing and causing problems for yourself? Okay, as it stands, do you know what's in the mind of that guy? You better leave that place and stay alone. Infact, forget about friends. It may be either you are like that guy or you don't know how to choose friends. I see no reason why you should be good and end up with bad friends.

Bro... Off K is worse... Especially the place they call ekosodin.. those ones will just donate you slaps for fun.. think of what they will do for money.. also school security wont want to get involved on thing that happens ouside sch
