How I Became A Beggar At Ikeja Courtsey Of First Bank by sEGXY2(m): 6:45am On Jun 05, 2019
I became a beggar at Ikeja courtesy of first bank
Yesterday was a day I will not forget in a hurry. I
literally became a beggar. If you encountered a well
dressed man with a purple nylon bag around traffic
light ogba axis begging for tfare yesterday it means
we've probably met.

Here's how it happened.


I had to go obtain a personal need at ICM and upon
getting there I discovered the price of the item I
wanted to get was slightly more than I budgeted for.
The only way I could still purchase the item is to
remove out of my transport fare back to Ikorodu. No
qualms I thought, I still had a meagre sum Of 1k in
my account and it would be enough to transport me
back to Ikorodu. So I proceeded to purchase the
item at ICM then with the remainder of the cash with
me, i went to drop another item with a client in
Ogba. While coming back I decided to use First
bank ATM machine to withdraw the last 1k in my
account and start heading to home (Ikorodu).


I inserted my ATM card into the machine then
followed the regular procedure, it got to when the
machine was to dispense cash, it kept reading
transaction in progress, while this was happening i
had received a debit alert, up until the machine
ejected the card few minutes later, no cash was
dispensed.

That was how I got stranded at Ogba.
For the first ten minutes I was clueless as to what to
do next. I mailed my bank (First bank) informing
them of the situation at hand. 30 minutes later, no
reply.


Fifty minutes later i was still there waiting for first
bank to refund my stolen 1k. Some more minutes I
realized what I was waiting for was like waiting for
Ighalo to net a goal.


That was how I turned a beggar with all my fine
swag. How I eventually got home is a tale for
another day. First bank go blow last last ni.

SORRY about your past predicament.

My suggestion/advice
1. Why not go back to your client, explain your ordeal to him/her and ask for assistance.
2. Always know it that the money you have at hand is what your budget(s) should be based on.
3. In this present time in Nigeria with all the news and all that is happening around us, people rarely/find it difficult to give (not because they can't nor don't want to).
4. And many more.

Very good suggestion but the story is fake,it's one of those cooked up crap that aims to redirect readers to a particular site. When I see an external link in a story,I stop reading undecided
