Its a lie... Speak with fact don't just type because u want to talk



Which of my statements is a lie bro?

The fact that bank (their staff) give out customer's details, or the fact that they only call people with money in their account?


Well, whichever case it may be, the reason I made those statements is because of other people's experiences I have seen.

They call usoo. A dormant acc I left after nysc with 100 naira balance angry grin grin. When I started cursing the caller he said, is it on top this empty acc balance you are doing all this?

Lol. the fact that he knows the account is empty shows it's an insider job.

Do you have another account with the bank?

Do you use first bank?

In most cases, it's the bank that gives out details of users to fraudsters.

It only happens when you have a reasonable sum of money in your account.

They'll never ever call broke people.

I think you are wrong here... Am broke and they are still calling me cry

Seriously I don't know what to call all these rubbish scam. I have been a victim, so as my colleague in office. Mine was that I didn't even send them any OTP and no alert was sent to me. I still have it as a case with my bank. It's unfortunate as people's money are no longer safe in some banks.

The idiots called me yesterday, but the way I queried them made them change their minds and ended the call after they discovered it's a bad market for them.
Very stupid fellow.

fraudsters no invade anything.
Alot of Nigerians are being tricked by various apps on the play store to reveal their bvn...most of these apps are run by criminal networks all over the world.

Some unscrupulous people are also tricking Nigerians to give up their bvn when registering for national ID.
My gf was asked to provide her bvn when she went to register her national ID recently.
Fortunately for her she called me and I advised against giving it up.


Someone should correct me if I'm wrong but is bvn number now a requirement for registering a national ID card?
yes. It is needed to ensure and verify that your biodata is same as that of your bvn, most especially your DOB, state of origin and LGA.

Abi o, if them call 100 people in a day at least 10 people go fall for the scam.

But if they are asking you for OTP code it means they already have your card details, my question is how do they get that?
the

One can generate an OTP with just your account number. So they actually don't need your card details

Local Scammers should be beaten to death and their corpse donated as cadaver to a teaching Hospital so that their scrotum sac could be dissected in a pratical lab session

Not only is Nigeria poverty capital of the world, with 30% unemployment rate, GDP per capita of less than $2,028.18 USD you still want to scam Nigeria Ogun go kee you, your mate are scamming US, Australia , UAE all with over $50,000 USD GDP per capita with little or no poverty

Anyways, to the O.P, its not about bank compromise, its called Data Mining using webcrwlers , this is how big tech company stay afloat by selling user data to willing buyers, all the forms (Registration forms etc) you have filled online on sites that use browser cockies are mined, a smart guy just need to use his social engineering skills to skim out data from you

with a Software program that cost less than $100 Pro Email and Contacts Extractor, and a good Bulk SMS site that can bypass DND (do not disturb) you are good to go for this evil useless poverty scam

Bankers don't have time for this kind of children, I never chop scam.. bankers do account flashing and clearing, which banker would be chasing change and risking his or her job over peanut scam, when he seats all day infront of finacle software and Turnkey

You're very knowledgeable

Honestly,a bank need to be sued big time then they will stop this nonsense.

Recently some of the banks are really misbehaving.

Many IT bankers that lost their jobs have been trying to use the customer's info in their disposal for fraud.

CBN need to vet these banks and start sanctioning those whose cases of fraud on customers account is high. Public trust on bank integrity is dying.

Re: Have Fraudsters Invaded The BVN System? by winnah(m): 9:57pm On May 23
All the compromise and most fraud that occur, is not from the bank staff as u claim sir.

I can categorically tell u that most of the compromise comes from NIMS platform, information u provided on social media and not from the bank,

I've had an instances where I enrolled a customer on BVN (note, it takes 24 hours for u to get your BVN after enrollment) due to some factors, I couldn't open the account but to my surprise this same customer was called....

At that point, the customer had no account so who is calling the customer and from where...

(Get this fact clear... No one can temper with your account for just having your BVN information)

That long number on ur ATM card and the 3 behind it can be used in a second to clear all ur funds in ur account...

He does not have any money to do all that. He will need money to find the culprit but no money that's all the money he had.

You cant overrule the banks collaboration with this fraudsters ,but another angle we should look at are those on line money lenders, like renmoney, to access loans from those platform your BVN will be required by their staff's some of this guy had a criminals intention to join those organizations having obtained enough information they unleash their real aims

This isn't new

But just to be safe

Stop filling all thr forms you see on whatsapp broadcasts,

FG is not sending money to anyone yet

All those foundations popping up here-and-there are not real too, all they do is harvest your information

Finally one link went viral 3-4 weeks ago about CBN business loan for enteprenure I believe some people were behind that too


Bottom line remain careful where you drop your info



And when they call you with mtn glo airtel looking number, don't reveal your details
I agree with you but you were wrong when you discredited the "CBN Loan Scheme " it's 100 percent legit and disbursements have been going on. Let's not discourage others. thanks

LaIabobo:
Firstly, Your BVN is actually not private. It is found everywhere. From NIMC, loan company, investment apps, various online registration. Those Data are mined by various tech companies.

Another thing to note it that the Fraudster called you to get information needed to defraud you. If not why did he bother to call you??

Gaining access to your BVN details is not enough to steal your money. They need your PIN, card details, or OTP.

That's why they keep calling and calling people hoping someone would be dumb enough to reveal his or her card details.

Even US and UK banks are not spared. Scammers have been dealing with them since time immemorial.

Just so you know, our banking system is actually safer than some other western countries.


lol, they call broke people a lot

the code is a OTP (one time pin) which is supposed to be private, she messed up by revealing that PIN to them.

This issue is part of the problem that comes with Fintechs. When making payment thru Paystack for example, there is no second-factor authentication. They only need your account number and OTP which would be sent to your registered phone number. And your money is gone.
Bless you for this.

with the hunger and covid19 around us..these scammers are hard-hit because some of their foreign clients are home, down with corona virus or lost their jobs.. so they developed new tactics which is to go local... now with our porous tech industry.. anyone with high end web and information technology brain work can purchase online tools to work.. these tools are majorly used by affiliate marketer to gain emails or Numbers but the wrong usage of these tools by these guys is catastrophic. they can randomly make some calls to numbers or bvns that they see it's vulnerable to their gimmicks..

my advice is that you should NEVER disclose your OTP, ATM pins to anyone around you..and whenever you wanna buy something online.. make sure the sites has https:// which mean its secured... and whenever your line or phone get stolen... kindly call customers care to have it block/ disconnected from the network before you head to the bank for anything.. Nigeria is now t the Mercy of our fellow citizens to.protect one another.. the failures of the govt and the society at large caused this

Anybody that's falls for these mumu scams would probably be illiterates.
There's no way those useless guys will call you and your common sense won't tell you that they are scammers. These idi.ots have very terrible accents and can hardly speak correct English. They are always in a rush and sound very angry and frustrated.

Imagine a proper customer service agent calling you and telling you " oya naa, check the back of ya card and call the number" " can you see it" " check it well na" " you are wasting time" blah blah blah.

Rubbish.

There is even 1 company advertising here on nairaland - instantcoins...Bitcoin sellers, during the registration, they asked for BVN,
after entering your BVN, that's it, anything else you do will give an error. You can't complete the registration process.
It seemed that they were just interested in getting people's BVN details
