What To Do When You Send Money To The Wrong Account by opyzy(m): 12:04pm On Sep 21, 2018
Good day everyone,
We all know we have a lot of dishonest people in our country, so, what can one do if one mistakenly credits the wrong account or overpays as the case may be and the recipient refuses to make a refund??

First, make sure to alert your bank on the wrong transaction made on time.

Go to court and get court order, go to your bank with the person's account name and number. The bank would now freeze the person's account.

Call the back asap

You can cancel any transaction within 24hours

That's if the recipient didn't withdraw or transfer out of it

The first and important thing to do is PRAY. Pray that the person who received it should be considerate enough to return the money.

Then you can go to the bank, tender your claims and ask for the recipient details for contact.

I have sent money twice to a wrong account for over 4months and till today GTB keeps saying they waiting for a mail from other bank.

My Advice.

Don't Be In Rush To Transfer Money And Don't Try Initiating A Transaction When You've Got Low Batterya

go to the bank, fill a form, write a letter to the bank explaining what happened and pray that the money is still in the account, if its no longer there, ur name is sorry, if the money is still there will take like 5 working days for the reversal to happen


people that are saying consent are pretending like they dont know that its nigeria, someone paid money into my account, 10k when i saw it i knew that it was a mistake and left it, the bank removed it, nobody asked for my consent

Call your accountant and follow his directions...

Lemme share a personal and very recent experience with you on the subject matter.

A friend of mine missed a digit in his account number, unfortunately the person sending the money din’t verify the account number, he just transferred the money straight into the wrong account. When he realized the mistake, he went to bank to lodge a complain, the money was traced and the number was called unfortunately the lines weren’t reachable. The account was flagged. Meaning he can’t do anything on his account unless he enters the banking hall. Further probing on the account revealed that it’s been years that the account was last used. Maybe the person his even dead (no one knows).

As it stands now, the money is chilling in the wrong account as of this morning. This happened over a month ago.

Just pray you don’t make some mistake, cos if you do, O.Y.O. is your case.

Last time I checked, your bank doesn’t have any right to remove a kobo from your account except for all those their useless bank charges. You just have to beg the person to please refund.
