Abro, no rich and sane man will leave his daily engagement in chase of 20k. Getting a lawyer, swearing an affidatvit and others, before u know 200k gone Worst if the recipient too has money and he'll also want to escalates the matter. Later on you'll regret even chasing the money.
u must be dumb. Na your type dey scam people of 10k to 20k and believe say nothing they person go do. When you jam coconut heads like us. E go shock you how I go use 200k to chase the money and still claim damages say e affect my business and still make am pay more

Where is the crime? Did he steal from you? How did he do it ? broke into your accounts? Hell no!

There is none whatsoever. He did not take your money, you gave it to him. Even the banks will never disclose his identity to you. Your best bet is to look for him and negotiate, you won't get it back with gra gra. If you send 200M to my account, you won't get a dime back as I will move the funds to my offshore holding accounts immediately. I do this all the time, way out of the reach of Nigerian banks. You can only beg me but can never use force cos I know the law very well.
logically the guy i transferred to didn't commit any crime. Where I feel it became a crime was when he was contacted to return the money and he say he no dey return

how. Much will it cost to get the court order and submit it to the bank?

There’s no fixed amount, depends on the amount involved. How much did you send?
Have you gone to the Bank to place a lien on the account you erroneously transferred money to?

Please how do I go about this too; I was to send light bill to a Palmpay account but mistakenly send it to OPay account, mind you the wrong account brought out same name with the Palmpay account obviously it’s the same account number, but now the person I am paying to said she doesn’t have an OPay account. How do I get my money back from the OPay account that doesn’t exist.
Tell her to open an opay account with the number. The money will reflect

I am so sorry for quoting you..
Please , you should mention me too there .. I have this similar issue at hand now ..
This one is an unauthorized transaction from a sisters account to Kuda , her phone was stolen and her palmpay account was logged into and money transferred from there to Kuda Bank before we could reach palmpay customer care agent . I've tried everything possible and nothing good has comes out of it ...
The sum transferred was 499k

Great , I think you'll have to help me too out , how can I go about mine here too .. I have this similar issue presently. Mine is unauthorized transactions ,phone was stolen , the account was logged into and money was transferred.. I've tried everything possible to no avail. Gone to palmpay office, wrote Kuda banks , and so forth but no good results

You can never transfer 80M by mistake. No online transfer would allow that so your assumption is moot on arrival.

However, if you walked into a branch and transferred 80M to the wrong account, then the amount is large enough to warrant spending resources to recover. You have to realize you can never charge the recipient with any form of crime as they never broke into your account to take money, you willingly transferred the money to them. No crime has been committed. You cannot even take them to court or charge them with anything.

There is no guarantee that you will get your 80M even after spending all the resources in this world. I will go to police HQ and give 10M out of the 80M to bribe the police ogas. Nothing you can do my friend. I worked in the bank for more than five years.

Now this is an interesting topic of discussion and answers to this topic represent the difference in mindset between rich and poor people, The poor are always full of emotions, and they never reason rationally, like most responders, nobody has even bothered to ask the pertinent question, what can I do to prevent this kind of occurrence in the future? Everyone is hung up on the negative emotions of how to fight and recover the money. The rich are rich because of their mindset, always careful with their money, and will never send money to the wrong. Every week, I transfer money to more than 10 accounts and i will never make the mistake of sending money to the wrong account because I fully understand the implications that I may never get my money back.

You see, no one has access to the account of the recipient, not even the banks are allowed to transfer from recipients account without their consent. There has to be proof of the commission of a crime before the law can go into the account of the recipient to look for the transfer. In this case, there is none.

I can bet money, OP will still send money to wrong accounts in the future.

I so much believe you ..
But please , what can i do in terms of an unauthorized transaction
One of my sister's phone was stolen and her palmpay account was logged into and 499k was transferred to a Kuda Bank before we could reach a customer care agent or try means to suspend the account..
we told the agent to escalate the transaction and she did . But nothing positive has come from it , I keep calling and calling the palmpay for mail to be send to Kuda to know our next move .I messaged Kuda ans the said , they awaits palmpay's mail first ..

I went to a magistrate court and they prepared it sighed by the magistrate. I paid 10k. It's court order, not court affidavit.
But before I went to court the bank blocked the receiving account.
Follow the same process.

Good evening bro, please which of the court did you go to because am in Lagos now and I have informed my bank but the guy that is helping me to follow up said I will need court order.
Please I help on how to go about it, thanks

I'm not in Lagos.

But just go to any magistrate court or high court. Meet the clerks that are in the offices there. They will type it and give to the magistrate to sign. They will ask you to come and collect the court order later, maybe the next day.

It's a simple process. You are not meeting the magistrate or judge yourself.
