Your phone can only be accessed by punching pins that is fine but can your SIM card too be accessed by pressing pins ? Because he could have removed your SIM card to another phone to carry out transfers on your account using those short codes.

slowbreeze:Why block sim before bank account. It should be the other way round

As a good forensic investigator I can then trace all the accounts that received the loot in less than 30 minutes.
The. Working with d police we will grab him in less than 12 hrs and his sorry ass will be left to rot in kirikiri maximum prison.
Where then is the smartness in stealing what is not yours in the first place.

Yes, it is possible with your BVN especially if you use Access Bank. Next time, quickly get a friend's phone and hotlist your account.

You can get back ur money and also no d person dat withdrew ur money, mind u, d money was not withdrawn but transferred.
STEP 1. Go to ur bank, to d customer care units, demand to no ur account manager, they will ask u why u need no c him/her but insist on ur point(they won't easily disclose d person in charge)
STEP 2. Ask him/her to give u d details of ur account activities if u were able to meet him/her in person
STEP 3. Treat to query him/her if its not disclosed(I'm such a way he/she will tell u d account to which ur money was transferred to, name, method of transfer, all details of the recipient)
STEP 4. Go to court n obtain court order
STEP 5. Write to CBN n also copy ICPC, EFCC as a quarry n in ur query, give dem an time to which u want ur money return n d culprit brought to book, treat dem u will drag dem dem to court(remembere u already have ur court order with u)
I bet u, u won't even b slow to leave d office either with ur lawyer or even if u went alone, deh will beg u n credit u immediately n collect ur account details for investigation (if u take it too high, some staffs in ur bank may loose der job especially ur bank manager, RCO of d branch u opened account with n d BSM on ground).
Don't doubt diz analysis, do its a long process n stressful but believe me, u will get ur cash back, even in multiples. I currently work as an investigation officer with EFCC.

|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by tete7000(m): 6:38pm On Apr 04|
I password my phone, my sim and I don't keep any banking apps on my phone. I delete bank transactions receipts immediately I received them from the banks, I don't keep them in my message folder
|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by symbianDON(m): 6:39pm On Apr 04|
Sicilyjoe:ok....I won't argue with you.
|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by Bodingo: 6:40pm On Apr 04|
symbianDON:It is a lie, someone must have your bank details to enter into it. Are you saying that Nigerian bank have no security, did you know the implication of that, you are saying that Dangote money in Nigerian bank can be wiped out by criminals.
See any withdraw from your account, the person must have seen your bank details.
|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by slowbreeze(f): 6:41pm On Apr 04|
Cos it's with d line/phone they used in making all the transfers.;and for some of us that have more than one account;before u run from one bank to another with all the protocols;money don transfer finish.So blocking d line is smarter.

|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by Denko2721987(m): 6:44pm On Apr 04|
Just report to your bank.. they would track the account number that the money was sent to..
Next time lock your sim and know ur account officer's number so that whenever something like this happens like u discover your phone has been stolen, you can quickly call them to block your account.
These criminals are like syndicates and they usually have insiders working in banks that make it possible to steal funds from a victim's account using their numbers attached to your bank account and your bvn..
So for some future security tips to stay safe next time, try to implement the following..
1- Lock your sim card with your sim to make it harder for these criminals to have access to your sim where they can dial a code to get your bvn number and also dial your bank's ussd code to initiate a bank transfer.
2- Know your bank's officers number.. Every account has a bank officer attached to it, so contact customer agent to get your bank officer's number so you can quickly call them whenever your phone is stolen for your account to be blocked.
3- Always delete every bank information from your phone like bank account numbers stored in your message inbox tru bank transaction alerts, or anywhere you stored bank information or login details that u cant remember off-head. Try learn to memorize your login details and if you must store sensitive details in your phone, try using a strong third party app to store them.
4- Lock all your bank apps with a password and even your message inbox, lock your email app and lock all sensitive areas of your phone... This can be done using third-party apps usually found on google play store for free and top ones for a fee. Also put a lock on your phone to make it harder for criminals and hackers to crack. (dont forget to use very strong combination passwords).
5- Always have a seperate accounts if you have too much money where u have no atm card or app attached to it so that you transfer the bulk of your cash to them.. These criminals usually use atms used for online transactions to hack into people's account and steal funds..
6- Try have an online web-based account for your bank account where u can randomly log into and transfer your cash to another relative's account before these criminals strike before you can do anything to safe your funds from been stolen.
7- Most importantly, report this issue to the bank cos they ought to bear some responsibilities for the loopholes used by criminals to steal money from their customer's bank account using just the victim's sim especially first bank that doesnt have an extra pin for USSD operations.. Infact its because Nigerians have little knowledge of their rights, if not many of these bank should have been sued big time for this rampant case of stolen funds due to their weak security.
A friend of mine was robbed at gunpoint and had her phone stolen and within 4 hours all the money in her account was wiped. She reported to her bank and ther promised to track the account where the stolen funds was transferred to and today she just called to inform me that the owner of that account had been tracked down and she will be receiving back her money..
So I hope you do the same thing..
I wrote this piece in haste in case there are typo errors, i just hope you can still comprehend all i have written.
I hope these tips would be of help to you, Sorry for what happened..
These are some links to read up on how these criminals perpetuate these acts of account theft through various methods one of which is popularly known as sim swap.
So u can learn more..

Yes is possible to overwrite your password, what they need is to insert your seem card in a new phone, it doesn't even require smart phone
|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by Ebenezerk2: 6:56pm On Apr 04|
That is why I like developed countries, you can just block your card from your bank's application, but Nigerian banks have not got to that level

manitobor:same thing happened to me, I went to the ATM to withdraw money next day and nothing was there then I went to the bank and they told me the idiot used all my money to buy airtime on my sim and living la vida loca. I rushed to MTN office for welcome back and found thousands of naira lying aimlessly on my line...it will never be well with that sadistic idiot
|Re: My Phone Was Stolen And Money Withdrawn From My Bank Account by Cantonese: 7:01pm On Apr 04|
Nowadays you can block your ATM card the moment you notice that it is stolen.
Next we can simply do not enable internet use with the banks. As long as you cannot do online transactions with your account, no one can steal from you.
Please everyone must be careful with their phones especially the ones used for banking. We have seen the crooks arrested by police confessing that all they need is the Sim card. They now have softwares that they can use to generate ATM card details, clone the cards and rob innocent people.
God will help us all in thia country.
