Last week i tried to use my debit card for online transaction but it wasn't successful so i went to my bank to lodge a complaint concerning my ATM. But to my greatest surpise, i was told that my bank account has been frozen. I then made an enquiry to know the reason why they froze the account, i was told that it was used to launder money from a stolen card....

A middleaged man approached me to help him withdraw cash by transferring cash to my account. I agreed to help him due to his urgency. I never knew he used a stolen card! This has been given serious concern and its d reason why i brought d issue so as to know what to do...

Did you check to confirm that your account was used to launder money by requesting your statement be printed for review.
If you observe suspicious transactions which was not initiated by you,then you need to be upfront with whom you have shared your account details with so you can track who has used your account for such illicit transaction, may be get the police or efcc involve to show you are not part of the laundering activities

You need to be careful,paying that money would be termed as guilt,the notion would be the bubble is burst and to cover your track you want to pay the money,

It's complicated but can be resolved with expert advice , you need a good representation to ascertain your innocence,money laundering is a serious issue no matter how small the amount involve is (N10.00) makes one culpable

Firstly write the bank explaining the situation as is,though they might find it hard to believe as you don't even have the mans name or contact details.

Let them advice you further,but my advice to you is to get a lawyer to put you through on what to do because as it is your are presumed to be part of the network as you don't know how many account the man has used for these activities.

I doubt if the bank would allow you pay the amount to the account holder from where fund was transferred into you account,how much is the money.

To be candid with you ,that was a very silly mistake you made,Trust nobody when it comes to finances, don't give your account to people for any form of transactions.

Do you have other account in another bank,if so try and make withdrawals, as it might be possible that it's only that bank that lien has been placed on your account.

My advice again,get a lawyer to advice you and take steps to remedy this whole shit, as if care is not taken efcc may be involved and your story will not hold water.

Sorry for my asking what's your age bracket and what do you do for a living

Just hope when you are being questioned on this case your age will not be a case as they say ignorance is no excuse in law.

That said ,if you are being investigated now ,hope no skeleton would be found in your cupboard - some parole things, well your uncle should be able to vouch for your character.

Just go a seek advantage se of a lawyer now ooooo,this thing no be joke ,especially if the person money was transferred from account to yours is really needs justice. How much is the money

Hello bro
I was a victim of that same method at Ibadan Skye bank An elderly man approached that he needed to take money out for his treatment, he tried to use the ATM card in my presence and notice the card was not working. During my turn he ask me if he can transfer money to my acct and help him to take out.. I told him he can transfer the money to my acct but let me withdraw from my personal money alas! Right there he made a transfer and receive alert show my name and amount debited he even ask me to collect his number for any problem.
My broda till today no money enter my account but an elderly man for goodness sake. I have move on from that experience but never never accept anyone to use your account or transfer money inside. Maybe my account would have been frozen too, I never receive the amount transfer for the useless old man. It's happened at Skye bank gate Ibadan. Sorry for the stress you pass through. I give up on naija ooo

Interesting. . .

Give your account details, receive money into your accounts ONLY to trusted family and friends that you can produce if anything goes wrong.

You mean someone you don't know, never met and may never see again...you allowed cash by electronic transaction to your account which was immediately withdrawn?
