An audio clip was sent to us for publication in which a voice narrated a story of how his sister was duped in a Bank. According to the narration as contained in the audio, a woman went to a bank to deposit money. After paying in the money, she was about to leave the Bank when one man accosted her and requested for her biro to use to fill a pay slip. The woman gave the Biro to him, and the man pretended to fill a bank slip. When the man returned the biro to the woman, and she collected it, her mind went blank.
The man then commanded her to go back to the counter and withdraw all her money for him. The woman sheepishly went back, collected a withdrawal slip and withdrew the sum of N450, 000 which she handed over to the conman. The money the woman withdrew was all she had in the account leaving her with a minimum required balance of just one thousand naira.
Immediately the woman took the money to the fraudster who was waiting outside the bank, the man hurriedly fled the place. It was after the man fled that the woman came to her senses. This is a warning to all of us particularly in Nigeria to be security conscious.
