Hmm, I am sure some one must know this guy. The Pix is clear enough. Doesn't look like a hausa guy,  has a semi bald head ,  is rather chubby ,   height about 5 foot 10' plus, (Don't ask me how I know, I read a lot of Shelock Holmes novels),  Has a choclate complexion,  Er I think the guy's picture should be placed in front of the NL page, so more pple can see if they know him.

Mr. Neuman press the bank 2 give u the photos of ur thief, I don't see why they should not give u the photo, unless they

don't have it. it will go a long way to help u find the culprit.

If N100.000 a day seems high for anyone on an average salary to loose in a day, I think the banks should concern reducing the amount.

There is daily limit of N100,000 in 5 consecutive draw of N20,000 each with other banks and N40,000 with your bank ATM.

Why doesn't the banks just put a daily limit on how much can be redrawn from the ATM's machines, this limit should also be low to avoid people loosing large sums of money, so even if soemone goes to different ATM's machine, once the daily limit has been reached that's that. also, if people want to redraw large sums on the same day, then they'll just have to go into the bank with their ID.

The scammer in the picture must be staying around Ajah , along Lekki-Epe expressway.

From information I got from my friend that sent the mail to me, he said all the ATM frauds took place very late in the Night (between 10pm and 11pm) at Ikota shopping complex, beside VGC , and at weekends too . So , it is likely he lives around that area.

I believe we can collectively do something. I know so many people who have lost money to these people. There is need to get a scapegoat . Hopefully , he may lead us to the root.

ehen more like it.

its just odd to post a topic without any backing. you have to provide proof. ive heard stories of how people forward piks of people with many stories true and false. i could tell it was from a bank wat i couldnt tell was why it was beign circulated with that story.

thread:

normally when you post news or anything u either get it from another thread on nairaland or somewhere else. then u add the liknk to the thread.

link:

or a news website and you add the link to the website.

then people can clarify your story. if not evryone on nairaland will just be posting "gist"!

How they do it?[/color]

1. They can easily steal it through any PDQ machine - all they need is someone who works in the PDQ operations centre in nigeria, they'll configure the PDQ to store ur details including ur PIN, then the worker installs this same PDQ anywhere e.g bars, cinema, eatery etc.

End of the month they go back to the PDQ, remove the data and clone cards using ur details.

These ppl make millions a day in Nigeria a day. (The dogs that chew the bones hung on their necks)

2. You use your ATM card at a machine and someone comeswith a kind of sophisticated card that he slots into the same machine and readsyour card details which he proceeds to use to clone your card nad rip you off.

3. Still speculating and suspecting that the bank staff have their way of getting your details and outsourcing it to the crooks that would clone your card, so it was not a matter of me exposing my pin to anyone, that was why I said earlier that this is the latest ATM scam strategy!!!

But whatever, why would Nigerian banks slack in protecting the clonning of their trusting customers that prefered them to other banks? Why would a bank not take responsibility in repaying their innocent customers whose fault it was not in the fraudlent debiting of their account?

[color=#990000]PLEASE GUYS, I AM STILL ASKING FOR A LEAD TO RECOVERING MY 85K AND HOW TO GET SEUN'S ATTENTION TO POPULARISE THIS TOPIC AND GET MORE PEOPLE AWARE OF THIS LATEST SYSTEM AS WELL AS TO SEE THE FACE OF THAT CRIMINAL AND HUNT HIM DOWN.[color=#990000][/color]

@neuman

Your bank will never send u an email or sms telling you to provide your ATM PIN.

guess you fell a victim.

PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN! PIN!

Personal Identification Number.

Personal Identification Number.

Personal Identification Number.

Personal Identification Number.

Personal Identification Number.

Even naija banks acts funny

There was a time i lost my ATM Card. I went to the bank the next day for deactivation of the card and requested for a new card

i already saved my card number on the system before it got lost. I did that when i got tired of typing it, because i was using it to buy recharge cards online often. after collecting the new card, can you believe it that the old card was still working online.

the new card and the new card had different expiry date and PIN, but both were still linked to my account.

Anyways, your PIN is the kokolet

Never giveout your ATM PIN!

If someone asks you for your PIN don't give it out hooo.

See what scammers uses

1. Scam pages

2. vulnerable webs

3. skimmer

4. msr if you want your card into 10 pieces, they'll make it.

5. cash cards.

I don findout i don tire.

etc.

I no fit shout. this kind great nation ehn nawa.

I was once a victim.

but it was not ATM scam.

so i don get lesson from that one.

them don email me tire.

woo, i don tire seriously, resting time.

Its not only through ATM those ppl can steal ur money.

They can easily steal it through any PDQ machine - all they need is someone who works in the PDQ operations centre in nigeria, they'll configure the PDQ to store ur details including ur PIN, then the worker installs this same PDQ anywhere e.g bars, cinema, eatery etc.

End of the month they go back to the PDQ, remove the data and clone cards using ur details.

These ppl make millions a day in Nigeria a day.

Solution: Dont use ur pin or card anywhere, if u need cash enter the bank

An individual who apparently is making a bank transaction at the ATM.

What he really is doing is placing a trap in the ATM machine to “capture” the next user card.

Altering the ATMs is a risky business, these individuals work in teams. The lookout warns of any possible eye witnesses / or of the next potential victim.

A next client using the ATM, after the trap has been set. He inserts his card and begins his transaction.

The ATM card is confiscated, and the customer is confused, asking himself, Why has my card been confiscated? However, here we see the cavalry coming to help, (HELP!!!).

Here, the thief pretending to help. What he is really doing is trying to gain the “customers” PIN, now that he has captured his card.

The good Samaritan convinces the “Customer” He can recover the card, if he presses his PIN at the same time the Samaritan press “cancel” and “enter”.

After several attempts the “customer” is convinced his card has been confiscated. The “customer” and the Samaritan leave the ATM.

Satisfied the area is clear, the thief

returns to recover the confiscated card from his trap. He not only has the card, he also has the PIN the “customer” provided unknowingly

In possession of the card and the PIN he leaves the ATM point

The trap is made up of XRAY film, which is the preferred material by thieves; Simply because of the black color which is similar in appearance to the slot on the card reader.

The trap is then inserted into the ATM slot. Care is taken not to insert the entire film into the slot, the ends are folded and contain glue strips for better adhesion to the inner and outer surface of the slots.

Once the ends are firmly glued and fixed to the slot, it is almost impossible to detect by unsuspecting clients.

Slits are cut into both sides of the trap, This prevents your card being returned prior to completing your transaction.

As soon as the “Customer” has gone, and they have your PIN , The thief can remove the glued trap, by grasping the folded tips, he simply pulls the trap out that has retained your card,

Recommendation!

1.-Once your card has been confiscated, observe the ATM slot and the card reader for any signs of tampering. Should you see the film tips glued to the slot, unglue, pull the trap out and recover your card.

2.- Report IMMEDIATELY to the BanK.
