Can My Money Be Stolen If A Yahoo Boy Knows My Bvn? by donpata(m): 9:48pm On Feb 13, 2019
I have wondered about this issue for a while. My thought has been that my Bvn is similar to my bank acct details. But someone claimed my funds could be easily stolen once they have my Bvn. I therefore want the experts to shed more light on this. Pls real knowledge not just the usual Naija man phobia for everything and anything. Thanks.

BVN - Bank Verification Number. Its purpose is to verify your personal details during banking transactions especially high risk ones. That's why if you go to cash a big cheque, you will asked to thumbprint or if the cashier isn't satisfied with your signature match.

The bvn only exposes your picture, full name and phone number used in registration for it.

So if someone has your bvn, all the access are your picture,name and phone.

They couldn't even use it to impersonate you at banks as the picture went match.
