|First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 6:19pm On Jan 20|
Growing up in the 80's , i am usually amazed by the advert of first bank, with the elephant symbolising strength and displaying confidence as truly the first. And i clearly understood while old folks and first generational businesses would not want to make a swift change to putting their money else where,even though they have other bank accounts but they would prefer leaving a large chunk of their money to first bank. I guess they believe in these saying, the older, the better.
But unfortunately what has happened to me in the last weeks with regards First Bank has left a sour taste in my mouth and utterly disappointed to say the lest .
On 20th December, i got invited by a friend thru Telegram for a business investment . Note i dont believe in get quick rich scheme, never participated in MMM, but because i was invited by my contact who i later found out her whatsapp was hacked, i yielded, the name of the investment platform is MBA TRADING AND CAPITAL INVESTMENT LIMITED runned by one Mrs Adeola kate balogun this platform had over 21 thousand followers with different testimonies, i decided to give it a shot and made my intentions knew . I was asked to invest and i invested 100k Immediately i paid the sum of 100k into a first bank account Mr Femi Emmanuel 3158974565 from my GTBANK account on 20th December at 8.25am. i notified Ms Adeola Kate Balogun who is the admin of group and sent her my proof of payments, she then sent me a number to call 08111106087 . Upon calling this number i would be given a registration code and unique id.
I called the above number and i was asked to pay in more money i tried arguing with him that was not the agreement, he insisted that was the only way i would have acess to the promo. Then i realised i was defrauded.
I quickly wrote to first contact that is first bank customer care centre and they advised me to get the law enforement agency involved , i got a court order or rather bankers order.
I went to submit the at the nearest first bank on Aka road uyo. The customer care lady i met at the bank her attitude towards my case was very disheartening. I was sent by first bank to report the case to GTBANK that GTBANK would handle the case.
I went to my bank to report the incident but Gtbank wasnt impressed with the manner first bank is handling the case. First bank is the recipient bank why should they be sending you to us . According to the manager this is not the first time its happening any time a case of fraud is been perpetuated by a customer from first bank, they would expect the corresponding banks involved to investigate the case instead of the other way round.
At the moment in Akwa-Ibom, Barrack police station in Uyo has over 50 cases of fraudulent transactions and over 80% of the fraudulent activities are done with different first bank accounts.
Though i am not giving up on this matter , please people should be weary on how you transact business with a first bank account holder particularly if its a new business deal online.
Please kindly spread the word. Below are evidences of my transactions.
I spoke to the branch manager and he was advising me to forget the money imagine.
He went through the said account and he could confirm that the account holder actually opened the account for fraudulent transactions as money do not stay upto 5 secs as money is hitting the acount its been transferred.
The name of the guy is Mr Femi Emmanuel
ACCOUNT number 3158974566 first bank Auchi Branch
Telephone number: 08111106087
Please fam, kindly assist me in tagging CBN and First bank on twitter and putting it on front Page. Thanks and God bless you. Amen
May we never fall in the

Well, I wouldn’t know if First bank took any action when you lodged the complaint but if any action was taken, a lien of N100,000 will be placed on the account of the fund is available or not. In the case, the fund is still in the account, you would be referred to lodge the complaint through your bank and if the fund has been withdrawn, you would still be advised to go through your bank. So, if the fund is still in the account, your bank would know how to liaise with FB and if the fund has been withdrawn then you may need to exercise patience till the acc is funded but in most cases, the beneficiary do not fund the acc and there’s is nothing the bank can do about it but the lien would still remain. Automatically, the acc reads -N100,000

The branch didnt do anything despite i submitted all the documents. The account was still running till yesterday, the customer care lady said she has sent it to internal audit department that nothing can be done to that account. I was later told by the branch manager that the account should have been placed on lien...as at 14th of January a transaction of 50k was done on that account. Thats y i am really angry.....i never expected such from First Bank i am really disappointed.

|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 9:01pm On Jan 20|
obumsway:She has been following me up with the case. Infact they almost arrested her, she had to show them her phone was hacked. Oga thanks but if you know me I don't get involved with such businesses . There is no need for the insult. Thanks all the same
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by aycapri(m): 3:33am On Jan 21|
prettyirene:that means the complaint was not treated earlier
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 4:25am On Jan 21|
aycapri:Exactly the delay was from the bank because the incident happened on the 20th december 2020 which was on a sunday and i filed in my documents on 21st December 2020 which was on a Monday. They were supposed to lien that account , her atitude was so lackadaisical about the whole issue.

Damn, scamming your fellow 9ja men, I hate that
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by Iceyjayz: 8:57am On Jan 21|
prettyirene:I wonder why y'all keep falling for these scams on telegram, 98% of investment schemes on telegrams are scam, all scams. no one, not even a reputable bank will give you such returns in 6 months and I think reporting to first bank is a total waste of time, that bank is useless because a friend of mine was scammed in the tune of 700k in 2018 and up till this moment he haven't heard anything from them, he stopped banking with them and removed all his money from his account, I think if you were banking with zenith bank or GT bank you would have heared feedback from them and the account of the scammer would have been frozen by now

Nigerian female bankers are the most inept and unprofessional bankers I've ever come across. Sorry for your loss
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 11:13am On Jan 21|
Iceyjayz:My dear thats why i had to speak out oh.. My Account officer in GTBANK was very angry..she said that most first bank account reported for fraud are not been treated by First bank rather they will refer you to your bank . Imagine mean while they are the recipient bank. Its like they are encouraging fraudulent activities so lets be careful when making transfers to any body with a first bank account. The case is already with CBN.

Op drop the group link. Her user name. I would report her to telegram within a day she would be labelled "Scam" permanently on her telegram.
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 12:02pm On Jan 21|
Kennyking1234:unfortunately I have been removed from the group.So I don't have the link . But her user name is Adeola Kate Balogun
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by sodiamond: 12:58pm On Jan 21|
This is almost the same story with what I experienced with Zenith. Gtb and Ecobank were really helpful when it happened with them. I fear any transaction that involves
zenith bank except I know the person one on one

Its a pity dear, there is little or nothing you can do, it only First Bank that can help you to produce the culprit, If you have a strong legal team and still have hug sum to spend via legal means you will get the fraudster and failure for the Fraudster to be produce the fruadster's account officer, the fruadsters account officer will suffer the Legal Penalty for not doing the right KYC. If bank pass Zenith bank, I no de de comfortable.

The only thing they are good at, is appearing and disappearing from the counter, then their customer service officer will appear from no where with a thick shoulder pad coat, lack respect to customer. They worst I hate about them is when you want to deposit cash, they will ask you go fold your cash and drop it inside a big Arch of covenant bus and go, you will wait for alert till thy kingdom come. You cant rush to pay cash into some one who is in a market yo buy something and the person will get his/her value for the money that day, is till the next day before they money will be posted into the persons account. I wonder why a young man or woman at this age will still be using such a bank.
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by prettyirene: 7:41pm On Jan 21|
DEBJOCH1:its really not about the money...do i want my money of course yes! But my dear we cant all continue to leave things the way they are...Even if it takes me a year, i must see the end of this case. And will be victorious by Gods grace.

The actions of scammers are just like that of thieves, terrorists, ritualists, rapists and all others perpetrators of vices, they do not know nationalities.
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by freeman67: 12:02am On Jan 22|
This your complain, is it only on Nairaland? If you dey use Twitter make it there then tag them and other influencers.
|Re: First Bank :A Den For Fraudsters.... by omoguess: 6:11am On Jan 22|
This document you attached here is a bank order, no bank will place a lien or Freeze in an acount with base on Bank order, the bank can only re leave personal information of the beneficiary to the police with this document, if you want a freeze or lien in the account, get a court order and not a bank order. Good morning
