I beg to differ. I was defrauded 4 years ago and the scammer's bank is Zenith bank. My bank contacted them but they did nothing. I suffered that year sha. Serious suffer that the thought of what I passed through still bring tears to my eyes. I even posted about it then. Below is the link to the thread.

I had similar case on telegram messenger,firstbank (my bank) is useless.unitybank(scammer's bank) ask me to make a report through my bank which i did. Firstbank said they can't do anything cos the transaction was successful, Unitybank ask me get a court order, lawyer advised i forget the money cos its little ad process would be cumbersome(im ready to pay him o). Zenith bank did the best move on behalf of OP, at least they shakara the scammmer. My 20k still with scammer,firstbank and unity bank did nothing.

Hahaha! This sounds weird, but you have a point.

Imagine if it was false allegation, with photoshopped screenshots as proof, that is how they would have frozen the innocent guy account for nothing.

I am sure GTB and Firstbank wouldnt do such, until you bring police report and court order.

The same thing happened to me too on the same whatsap TV and I sent messages immediately to my mumu first bank and nothing was done by the bank uptill now and I strongly believe that first bank is encouraging fraud in nigeria like seriously

if u had called them out on Twitter, they would have quickly taken swift action on the matter

So sorry to hear about this incidence.
However, our software doesn't track device or people.
Are you able to narrate this event or provide more details of the transaction, so we can make recommendations.

Thanks

Forget the topic am sure you got the idea.

There is this whatsapp TV that I have been following for a Long time and the guy always advertise MBA Investment Trading and How I can get 100% of my investment in 48hours, After various testimonies he kept displaying I decided to give it a try.

Firstly I messaged him for details and he told me all the bla bla bla of How it works. I was only interested in the part Where I will get my money doubled.

Fast forward to After I sent him the first 5k he said that one was for registration that now I should invest, at that point I began to suspect Fowl play but my 5k was already inside let me just see it through, so I added the 10k.

Next day he was complaining that it refuse to invest and that the platform for 10k investment was giving issues that if I have 5k I should add so that he can add up and invest 15k and I will get back 40k, I told him that was all I had.

The story is getting to Long. Long story short he kept giving one story or the other then it was clear to me that I have been scam. I was so ashamed that I did not tell anyone.

Then I mailed my bank about the matter and asked them if there is any resolution. They replied that I should take a screenshot of the conversation Which I did.

It's a month Plus now I have even forgotten about the issue when the Scammer messaged me pleading that he will refund me the 15k because he got a letter from his bank threatening to freeze is account if he does not resolve issues with me. I was finally able to get my money back. I have messaged my bank about the refund and I hope they relay the message on time to his bank.

Did you copy CBN when you sent the mail? If so what's their email address?

bro bank suppose protect their customers no matter what even if you do fraud dem suppose cover you lol he get why

Are you high on something? By the time CBN sledgehammer falls on them, they won't know what hit them. They should be protecting fraudsters just because fraudsters are their customers! What if the victims is the bank employee or employers or their children or family? Lol

Like the bank wouldn't check his account history before taking the action. And if the allegation was false and the screenshot is fake, what does it take him to visit the nearest bank and tell them his side of story. After all, it's temporary freeze and not outright emptiness of the account
