The Pressing Issue Of Retained Atm Cards. by okemejames(m): 10:12am On Jul 30, 2019
There is something more disappointing and devastating when you get to the ATM stand only to find out it can't dispense cash. This is usually more painful after staying on the queue for a long time maybe under an angry sun. A more disheartening scenario is when your card is retained by your own Bank ATM and the situation becomes more critical when it happened during the weekend especially after the closure of Banks. It becomes very painful when an emergency is at hand .
These cases are not as serious as when your ATM card is retained by the ATM of another bank other than yours. That can really be heartbreaking as no matter the English you speak the customer agent will direct you to your bank for a new ATM card. They'll tell you it is a directive from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). We all know how these ATMs malfunction sometimes and whenever that occurs and your card happen to be inside is an endgame; the only response you will get is that your card has been compromised. Worst is the case when you consider the rigmarole as it's an Herculean task to get a new card as the process is as difficult as looking for a bank or an establishment without a standby generator.
The importance of ATM can't be overemphasized as it has in tremendous ways assisted the banking system and the economy of the Nation at large. Transactions had been eased and businesses done easily but the impediment of a retained card is indeed catastrophic.
As long as a proof of ownership can be presented, I see no reason why a retained ATM card won't be released. It may now become a thing of trial and error or risk to make withdrawals from other bank ATMs. It's high time a bill is passed by the National Assembly or whoever in charge in respect to this reoccurring decimal. CBN should carefully look into this situation and reconsider their policy as it pertain this challenge. It cost time and money to get a new ATM card; even energy is also exerted in the process.
We all know that one of the customer's bill of rights is that the customer is the most important person in the economy and every business succeeds only when the customer is happy; therefore the customers should be regarded as a king. It will be a thing of joy if this policy is revisited and reconsidered for the benefit of all and for a better relationship in respect to the economy and the Nation at large. Thank You.

People that do not summon courage to shout in the bank, how do you people do it? The best place to create scene is in the bank.

As long as it's your bank (even if it's not your branch), they have every right to bring it out and give to you.

First Bank got a share of my anger last year with this ATM card issue.

Why should banks return your card to you? When they make 1k naira each time you request for a new card?
It's all about the dough for these banks

You mean "retracted"

This thing happened to me one day at Seme border. They returned my card when I became violent. Other people used the opportunity to collect their cards too cos that machine retracted a lot of cards that day. Nonsense.
I had no cash left so I was ready to bring that bank to a standstill.
I told them they and their CBN are making stupid policies. The card is my property and they have to right to make decisions for me.

One of the most stupid policy ever in the history of this country is the permanent forfeiture of your card if it gets swallowed by an AT-machine of another bank

What exactly is the logic behind this? What sense does it make?

There was a day I was travelling on a Friday afternoon and I decided to quickly withdraw with a polaris atm card at an access ATM stand.. The atm swallowed my card and the stupid bank staff and gatemen asked me to go to my bank to request for another card.

To request for another card another 3:50pm when I needed cash urgently to travel??

The anger should be directed to the CBN who made the policy in the first place.

Once an ATM retracts my card, I simply deactivate the card via internet banking and request for a new card. I don't trust bank staff not to copy my PAN and CVV_
