Michael Asemota Returns N150 million Wrongly Paid Into His Account In Qatar by oluwatoba400: 2:26pm On Aug 20, 2017
A Nigerian expatriate in Qatar became a millionaire for several hours after a bank mistakenly deposited more than QR1.5 million ($411,127.99) into his account recently.


The man, Michael Asemota, had opened an account with a cheque of QR150,200 with an undisclosed commercial bank, where heis the sole signatory of the account.


As he got back home, he received an alert showing that a QR1,502,000 had been credited into his account by mistake instead of QR150,200. Asemota went back to the bank and returned the money.


Speaking to Qatar Tribune, Asemota said,

”After opening the account with the bank, I checked my balance to make withdrawals for a supply job and found the huge sum. I was amazed and decided to contact the bank.


I went to see the manager to report the error of QR1,502,000 deposited into my account. After checking for confirmation, the manager gave me a warm handshake in appreciation.” .

Asked why he alerted the bank about the error, Asemota said,

”I knew the money did not belong to me and shouldn’t be in my account in the first place, so there were no motives and temptations to keep it.”

Asemota is a good friend of mine.

In any case, there's no way anyone could have gone away with the money paid into his account in error here. This is not Nigeria.

Especially in Nigeria some of those money are not mistake. They credit a very active account or dormant account with looted money by sharing it on those accounts. Either or not you report, they will still move it to another account until it get to its final destination to evade EFCC.
It's always a collabo between those bank managers and the looters.
So the best you can do for yourself is to instruct the bank to remove the money with immediate effect to avoid financial crime commission coming after you. If the money is huge, you can even report it to EFCC directly to have your own whistle blowing commision.
