This definitely is a daily occurrence.

They simply dial code to quarry your BVN.
They attempt all banks code to purchase airtime esp Gtb 737. Buy airtime on your line, transfer to particular number and sell to people.

Please no one should try this unless you have your SIM pack with you.
I just tried it and my SIM locked asking me to input PUK.
Within seconds my body was covered with sweat as I remembered the stress people go thru doing court affidavit just to unblock SIM.
Luckily for me after ransacking the whole house I was able to see my SIM pack

You could have simply called your Network Operator, and your PUK would be given to you. They will require you to answer some security questions, which I doubt would pose a problem for the 'real' SIM Owner.

Speaking from experience!

Have your pack for your puk number incase you mistakenly enter the wrong pin. Going to the MTN office to retrieve a puk number is stressful

You don't have to go to their office. All you need do is call.

That's not true GTB ask for pin (4 digit pin)

GTbank only ask for pin when you're buying airtime from your account to other phone number, but when you buy to your own number, they do not require pin.

Any other number you can get will do. They will surely ask if you are calling with your number

Even if one set sim lock on the phone, does it stop them if they are buying airtime with the phone?


Since the phone is pass worded. They will switch the SIM to another phone and try to use the SIM. When they switch it, the SIM will request for a password before it can be used.

How do one password Sim?
Offpoint:

All they need to do is removed your sim from your phone, next time don't only password your phone also password your sim... they only have 3 attempt before the line is block.

He probably make use of USSD to transfer your money

Just go to your phone settings under security you'll see SIM card lock, set up your password there...

Don't try it if you've lost your sim pack, because you're going to need your PUK...

When I went to 1st bank for my online app activation. A lady came crying that she lost her phone, the lady in charge of those online stuff ask her to dial a code from another phone to block her line. I was far away from them that day and I couldn't pick the code she asked her to dial. Anybody that know the code should help us here with it incase the eventuality happen, Pls?


Why didn't you just simply just the bank staff about the code while you were till in the bank

Now you are asking us... Nigerians eh

Had the same experience early year. The thieves managed to steal 32k from my account.

I've since learnt that the first thing to do after such theft to block your line. Then contact your bank to block your account as well.

Did the bank pay u the 32k back? Did the police help ?

If you using MTN pls go and download the mymtn app. Do your normal sign in and you will see your PUK number. Write it down before you go down to sim lock
