Man Disguises As Diamond Bank Staff In Lagos, Steals N650k by Yarnvibes(f): 4:01pm On Jan 17, 2017
A Robber has made away with over N600,000 belonging to Bank Customers in the Apapa-Warehouse Branch of Diamond Bank in Lagos State after disguising as a Bank Staff. See full Story below:

As shared by Facebook User, Nnamdi Ikeh-Akabogu:

INTELLIGENT ROBBERY, WITHIN BANKING HALLS:

“I have a neighbour who sells foodstuffs. She travelled for the new year so so instructed a relation to pay in the money(130,000) into her Diamond Bank Account…

She was in the Banking Hall, Warehouse Branch, Apapa, with the money in her bag. While filling her teller, someone asked her if she was paying in & at which she said yes. She later joined the long pay-in queue.

After a moment, and with d queue practically not moving, a young man, dressed in corporate suit (all thought was the Bank’s cashier) came close to her and in a low voice asked for people who were paying above 100,000.

About five people stepped out and he asked them to follow him a few meters away from the queue. They all thought he was the Bank’s staff, out to offer help.

He collected all their money, the completed tellers and asked them to wait on the line, so he can go in and stamp their tellers…..

And so the man left. They waited and waited endlessly, not knowing that he had long exited the Bank,through the rear exit, with their over #650,000.00.

It was after d seemingly unending wait they decided to report d matter to the Manager,who had to come down… checked the CCTV footage and behold, the gentleman in suit, was neither the Bank’s cashier nor even a staff !

The security guard confirmed it was the third time such was happening in that same Branch alone !

My fellow Nigerians, we must BEWARE of activities of fraudsters, particularly in the Banking Halls !!

We should please share to avoid more people falling victims.”

How did he get access to back door without notice? Is the back door always keep open? I think an insider is involve. But how can someone just hand over money to anyone just like that in a banking hall. People should try to learn and know when to spot a scammer.

If this news is true, all Diamond Bank has to do is pull the guys images from the plenty CCTV in the banking hall.

Pay NTA, Channels, TVC, AIT and NL to broadcast for only one day.

He'd be identified and arrested.

Like I said, if this news is true...

Breaking News to those that lost their money... It's everywhere in every bank you shouldn't give your cash or instrument to anyone not behind a counter as the bank is not liable.

You all on your own.

We are very impatient a people,come and see shunting during petrol queue - James Bond will bow at the way people just repark their cars, as for Banking - those that give big tips to the cashier are called from the back to the front of the line.

Sharp man! Correct.
Why must there be long queues in Nigerian banks in the first place?

Why dont banks in foreign countries look like market places like banks in Nigeria?

Must people pray to be able to even use the ATM? Yet, any store or individual can own ATM machines in other countries, and most people don't even need to get in the banks, so no queues.

Why don't they include process improvement initiatives in their internal budgets and move away from their archaic banking methods?

The guy just took advantage of Diamond Bank's leaders' dumbness - wake up call for them to learn how banking is done in other countries and not subject Nigerians to situations the populace in other countries don't deal with.

They know we see them in their suits, what they don't know is that we know their brains are empty. The only thing they think about is their monthly and earnings. Whom do they earn from if not the populace? Why subject them to hardship to interact with their own funds?

Compete with the rest of the world and stop acting like a local champion.
