Scammers Now Use Date Of Birth As Their New Format Of Lies by BluntNigerian: 10:52am On May 15
Scammers are now using the “Date of Birth” Lies to Scam innocent citizens.

Once they have your account number, they can proceed to hack the systems and get your BVN, and from there, they can get your name, address, date of birth, and so on.

And every information you ask of them as confirmation, they will just give it to you, so that you would think that they are genuine.

.....
On Thursday around 4:45pm, one Adebola called me with an ordinary number instead of the usual 0700-300-0000 that Access Bank usually call people with.

He said that he is calling me from the Access Bank Headquarters. He mentioned my correct name for me, and I concurred.

He then went ahead to tell me that the date of birth on my “account” in Access Bank is different from the DOB in my BVN (But I have more than one accounts with Access Bank, so he didn't specify which account he was referring to). He then told me that he needed to know which one out of the two dates are correct so he can correct it.

I asked him to break everything down with figures. He called out my correct DOB and said that it was the DOB on my Access Bank Account. He then called the same DOB and changed the year of birth, and said that it was the DOB on my BVN.

Habbaa!!.
I asked him to explain to me how that could ever be possible. He said that maybe the person that was entering the values made the typo error while feeding my information into the system.
He then told me not to worry, that they can correct it directly from the head-office, that a code will be sent to me to confirm that I am the one, so as to give them permission to....

I cut in immediately telling him that I will go to my bank first thing on Friday morning to rectify it.
He asked me “what sir?”, and I repeated myself again.
He dropped the call immediately.

I went to my bank on Friday to rectify the said error in the DOB, but got disappointed to discover that there was no error on the DOB.
In fact, every single information on my BVN-Page was correct.

The officer that attended to me at the bank told me that I did the right thing by coming to the bank.
..
That's the number that called me, and that is his name on Truecaller. (In the picture attached)
But he came across to me as Adebola.
The number is registered with fake information, just for the sake of fraud.

It is against banking operation ethics for a bank to call customers on phone to verify an UNINITIATED/UNSOLICITED detail of a customer.

The permissible time a bank is allowed to verify a detail from you is when your ACCOUNT OFFICER calls you to verify/confirm a financial instrument (as specified in your mandate form). Other than that, it is unethical for a bank to call you.

If the bank discovers any error in your personal details, they will WAIT till when you come to the bank, irrespective of how long this takes.

Be guided.

That's why I pity people who are always quick to drop their personal information on the internet.

They first start with fake giveaways to get people's account numbers. Next they lure victims with stupid games like the one I posted below. Then they use other stupid games to get your date of birth too. Mumu people will keep on dropping personal information everytime till they have every information needed to steal money from your account. Later you will say they used jazz. grin

Same here. One Adeola called me sometimes December last year sitting the difference in my DOB zenith account. Immediately I told him I will go to bank tomorrow to fix what the issue may be. He dropped the call.
The number is registered with fake information, just for the sake of fraud.

Why do these scammers always come for Access bank customers?!

Two days after i collected my first ATM in Access bank Last december, someone called me to tell me of how i just collected my ATM and how it need to be upgraded before the new year bla bla bla...

I nearly fell for d trick. He insulted the hell out of me when i started asking him questions.
He was like: i am not ur mate... U are very stu..pid...you think we are playing here... I am trying to do my job... lol. I was perplexed after that episode.

I kept wondering how he got to know about the collection of the ATM card!!

Similar calls were put to my dad and sister.

One also called my big sis few weeks ago from accesss bank, she knew it was them but she just played along, then she asked the idiot why is he calling her, you will be surprised at what he said

he told her that he want her money, she insulted the idiot before ending the call.

I think they have hacked the BVN system or someone from the BVN control office has sold customer information to fraudsters as they read out my BVN number to me and my full name.

Access bank has one of the best customer care service, they prefer calling to resolve issues only when you mail them first.

There was a time I needed to block my account fast because I thought I had been scammed, I was short of airtime and time was not on standby, so I made a quick call to them but it got disconnected and they called back immediately. I was extremely impressed.

scammer: mentioned my name, account details and date of birth correctly and wanted a confirmation I told him he got my date of birth wrong, he insisted its correct.. argument ensued and he called me names that at my Age I don't know my date of birth blablabla, he even ,cursed me that i will be sacked from work, the idiot didn't know I was self employed he was pained when he discovered I was smart, I wish I had saved his number I would have uploaded it here, grin grin
