But why use an account that you know is on negative balance as your salary account for the company in the first place?.

I smell what is not true (lies)

Stop basking in ignorance,

Banks will usually not borrow you money except you use your salary account (in case of no collateral)

Infact what qualifies you for loan is your salary, he probably took the loan when he's still employed and couldn't pay off before he was laid off

Borrow from friends and pay back in time or they might arrest you.

This is company money, the job of the accountant is also at stake here, so pity him too

Stop collecting loans from banks or loan apps, they are usury and usury is designed to make you poor, you keep borrowing and borrowing and paying back with high interest. It is a trap.

This is not a wise advise. The stop borrowing is. But the arrest sounds odd. All he needs do would be to show that he did not withdraw money from the account. Or he was actually expecting 40k from someone. Hence he used the money. Your case would crumble like a pack of cards in court. Na to dey pay 1000 per month till the money complete.

True talk.
Loan is the last thing you should take. And if you must, take only what you know you can comfortably pay.
I will not say because carbon offers me 500k I will take. . I rather collect 20k to solve urgent cashflow issues knowing within days the money will be available to refund.

Why not ask the accountant to initiate a recall with the company's bank? They should treat it as an erroneous transfer. You can confirm same to your bank. Then, depending on how ethical the bank is, they may reverse the transaction. The issue is that the money is so small. How person go advise you to get lawyer to manage the recall now?

Last last, the accountant will bear the cost

Good day fellow Nairalanders. Please don't mind my long note.

I got a job with a newly opened superstore in the month of November this year. I was formally with a private secondary school but I had to quit when this new job clicked. I forfeited my October salary because I didn't give the school a month notice and I didn't even know that I will get the superstore job. We did interviews during the endsars lockdown.

I had to take up the superstore job as an inventory manager because the salary is better than the school job. To cut the long story short, I resumed as the inventory manager and we were handed over our employment letter. We were two in my department (Inventory). At the end of the month (November) the staff were asked to submit account details to the accountant which we all did so we were expecting credit alert for the month of November.

The accountant didn't credit our account rather he was calling the staff one by one in his office and pay them with cash. I was not called and i was wondering what could be the cause. My colleagues asked me to go meet the accountant in his office. When I got to his office he told me that he didn't know how he wants to relate the latest development to me. So he started saying different stories and he was pacifying me. He handed my salary and another letter. I opened it and it was a "temporary lay off letter". The reason was that " budget consideration ". The superstore hasn't make much to cover staff salary. I was laid off with 3 other staff (one merchandiser, one bakery staff and one cashier).

Meanwhile it was the manager that interviewed
and she is the one I report to but it was the accountant that handed over the letter to me. The company retained My junior in the inventory department after I had put him through somethings he does not understand on the job.

I was dumbfounded and it look as if my world is coming to and end. I thought of my children and wife, my house rent. I started blaming myself for leaving my former job. I summoned courage and I left.

I got home and explained situation of things to my family. That week wasn't an happy week for us considering the fact we are approaching the month of December (festive season).

Meanwhile I have another side hustle I engaged in during weekends but its not fetching much money and the stress was too much; I collapsed and I was hospitalized for two weeks.
On the 28th of this month I received a call from the accountant that he mistakenly transfer the sum of N40,000 into my account that I should please forward the money back to the superstore account number. The manager also called me. But my phone mouthpiece has been very bad since Christmas day. I used to manage my wife's phone anytime I have important calls. That faithful morning I took my phone to the engineer and I went to collect it in the afternoon thinking the phone is ok but the mouthpiece is still not working fine. So since the accountant couldn't hear me, I sent him a text that my phone is faulty and that I will call him back as soon as I fix it again. The following day which is today I took the phone back to the engineer. And I went straight to the superstore to ascertain what really happened. So he told me he mistakenly sent the sum of N40,000 to my account and that the money was December salary for the second guy in the inventory department. and that I should pls forward the money back to the company's account and that the company is on his neck. And I explained to him that I don't usually receive funds in that particular account because i took a loan from access bank which is overdue and I'm yet to pay them. And even if I receive money in that account I will transfer it immediately to my kuda account and i showed him my kuda atm card but in his own case now when he transferred the money I wasn't with my phone it was with the engineer and I wasn't expecting transfer from anybody. And I told him that when he and the manager were calling me the engineer didn't fix the mouthpiece well and I was on my way to ijaiye. I told him I went to drop the phone back this morning and I will go and check my access bank app to see if transactions occur because I didn't receive any credit alert. Alas when I collected my phone back and I checked the app I saw the 40k credit and access bank had already debited me for the loan.

I don't know what to do now because he is begging me to please refund the money into the company's account and I have been trying to borrow from access bank again but the bank keeps telling me I am not qualify for a loan at this time. I don't have salary job at the moment and there is nowhere I can get money to repay the company. I wish to refund them so that I won't look like a bad or dubious person to them. He has been calling me on phone but I don't know how to break the news to him.

Pls what can I do in this kind of situation?

I will not advise you to take loan to pay the money. Print your bank statement. Go and show it to the accountant and the manager. Let them know that you don't have the cash to pay at the moment. But you will be paying XYZ amount every month till you complete the payment. Don't add more stress to your life than there is already.

You don't have to put your self into a depressed state because of their own mistakes and also putting you off for reasons best known to them

Let the accountant follow you to the bank and see things himself

As for your other accounts, just remove whatever penny that is there so that they won't see a kobo there

Tell them to give you time to look for money as you don't have anything doing now to get money

If are asked to write under taking, you can write and if it's 2k you have at any given time you send to them and keep your records

Don't ever promise in the writing that you will pay all at a time

Let them partake in putting you through hardship, eve is it takes you a whole year to clear it, to me, it doesn't matter
hahahaha! Youfunny die. I wish they would all partake in the hardship, but unfortunately, it is only the manager that would suffer it alone because the mistake was made by him.

Take a screenshot of the transaction on your bank app showing the inflow and outflow of the cash and use it to explain the situation just like you did now. They cant kill. You could let them know that once you get another job you would arrange to pay them back in installments.

Na wa for you sha...you should have given them your ATM account number for your salary payment. What if it were your salary paid when you weren't expecting , na so e for enter voicemail?

May God turn your situation around bro...good luck.

Nairalanders the best you guys can do for this guy is to start a crowd funding for him.



I am ready to head it.

I would have paid off this debt for you but I am somewhere that I don't have access to much fund the little fund in my daily expenditure account is almost exhausted on xmas give aways cry



So I am using this medium to beg 20 good spirited Nairaland members to indicate interest let's start a crowdfunding for this guy. I will bear the bulk of the funding.


If we are able to raise more than the loan, we can give it to him as New Year gift or use it to assist other Nairaland people in need.


Nairaland need to have a crowd funding programme to assist our suffering youths bikonu cry


If you are interested to join the crowd funding pls quote or mention me.


God bless you all as you comply.


I promise all that will join that God will surprise you in 2021, take it from me.


Once I have up to 10 interested members I create the crowdfunding thread asap
