A very unpleasant thing happened to me on Tuesday, two weeks ago. I went to the ATM to get some money from the vey little I had in my account. I placed my order but what I got instead of the money was ' you have insufficient fund in your account'. I called my bank (UBA) immediately to get details of my account and I was told that I had withdrawn all the money I had the previous day from the ATM at Ibro hotel, Abuja. Never been to the hotel!!
That was when it dawned on me that I had been robbed. How they did it still remains a mystery to me 'cos nobody ever had access to my ATM card. But the same card was said to be used in withdrawing every kobo from my account. Too bad, especially for someone who is still struggling without a steady job. I have written to the bank and they say they are investigating the matter. What is the world turning to? What is becoming of this country? Why do the helpless and innocent continue to be cheated? Why me?? Untll it happened to me, I never knew such a thing could be possible.
Is the bank or the ATM safe afterall??
