FIRST BANK Freezed My New Current Account By Inconveniencing Me by TellerPayLoan: 9:44am On Apr 21, 2020
Last 3 weeks before the first lockdown order, I walked into a first bank branch,asked for Current Account opening. Submitted all requirements including BVN, Passports, ID, Utility Bill etc. I was told by the lady to wait after 24hours for the Account details to get to me through Alert. Of which it took almost 2 days before coming in after so many pressures from my side to her via calls. I asked for ATM and Cheque book, but was asked to come for it the following before Lockdown came.

Now during the Lockdown, since the Account is A fresh Account and and no transaction has come in yet,(but I was told it was fine to deposit) I decided to link this Account to my Bet9ja Account. I won 68,000+ and withdrew during Last 2 weeks. Alert came through, won 100,000+ again and withdrew the following week through this their zoom soccer. Now I got the confidence and walked to their bank last week, but was told they will open this week.

Lastly,
This morning I went to First Bank to get an ATM, lo and behold I was told my account is freezed for what the staff termed "debit forozen". I got angry and asked why at the top of my voice that attracted the manager. Who took me to his office and checked my account after he saw that I had no any other transaction....
It was at this point, He apologized to me that it is not my fault but from their HQ in Lagos on shutdown, that my account was not properly ready with the CPC before lockdown order and still in progress which made it not to have BVN. That there is nothing he can do till they resume office at HQ, that I should come next week


Omo I weak till now for my own money and sweat

Please what might be the case, that will make them not be able to give me cash and debit me. I plan on sueing them

I'm curious o, how do you sweat from betting? Is it the heat or the tension from losing the bet?

Lol, betting is hustling with your emotions and resources too na. Imagine I put in 10k and had not enough to feed for, and lost it. You will see that lockdown extension will really dawn on me because no hope

Lol true I get what you are saying. I would recommend you leave the account frozen and keep crediting the account when you can until you really need the money. First bank also made my savings account dormant, Initially I was mad but when I realized the protocol to reactivate it was too long I just left it as it is and I try to credit the account with any excess money available every month. It's been close to a year now and I'm not ready to activate it for a while because I enjoy seeing the money grow. You should try it too

You are at loss. The same thing they did to me back then in 2011. My account was frozen which was a savings account. I tried all I could to reactivate it, but nothing was done.

I wrote letters, filled different forms, all to no futility.

I was angry, and i ended it.

Not at a loss, my current account is still active and I get around 5% interest of the amount in the savings. I can pay money into the account and log into the online banking but just can't take money out. There's probably a difference in a dormant account and a frozen account.
