Did your father lose his ATM? Has his banking details been compromised? Visit the bank, Nairaland isn't a bank.

Visit his bank with him.

Table your requests in a letter addressed to the branch manager.

You will be advised accordingly.

have you tried iPhone before?
the only way something can be hack proof is if there is not back door to correct some security problems like forgotten password

Change the PHONE NUMBER that's linked to the account, that is removed the old one, then link a new number NOT add another phone number. LET THEM REMOVE THE OLD PHONE NUMBER COMPLETELY FROM THE ACCOUNT.

Since your Papa is aged already, 76years for that matter.

Don't send money to his account again. Look for POS operator close to him and collect their phone number and account details through which you can be sending money to the old man. Safe the old man from all the stress.

Sorry about that. Your dad may have done something to compromise his account. He needs to freeze his account for the time being until the problem is corrected.

Thanks a lot.I chated with the bank last night and they have blocked the ATM card.

If the said account is his pension account, then he can't change the account number. What I would advise is still the freezing of the account. When his account is frozen, only your can be able to withdraw money over the counter. He nor anyone else cannot withdraw via an ATM, POS, online platform,m...nowhere but the counter, thereby checkmating the fraudster. Note that this would have to continue until the problem is corrected. Please do this fast.

Not just the ATM, they should freeze the account too.

Freezing the card can only be effective if the thief carries out these crimes using dad's ATM (which I doubt is the case).

It's was through the ATM. Before he started using ATM we didn't have such problem.. In fact I was told this morning that there was a time he misplaced the ATM, only to find it days later..So I believe that's what afford the fraudsters the opportunity to take advantage of it.

Okay. Sorry about that. From your narrative, it seems dad is quite advanced in age. How about he uses a checkbook as against an ATM. With an ATM, his account will always be compromised. Any riff raff can take note of those digits and swindle him yet again. Withdrawing via the cou term seems to be his best bet.

If the paragraph above is not tenable, another option is that when he gets a new card, help him scratch off the 15 digit number in front and the 3 digit at the back.

Thank you so much for your concern..Yes henceforth he is not going to use ATM card.. Aside that I have communicated with my sis through whom I would be sending money to my dad..His account that has been compromised will only be used for his pension,though like I said early the ATM card has been blocked..So let's see how it plays out.Thanks a lot dear
