Mystery As Dead Man Withdraws N4.3M From Union Bank In Kaduna

dead man withdraws money bank account

July 4, 2015 – Mystery As Dead Man Withdraws N4.3 Million From Union Bank Account In Kaduna

Wonders, they say, shall nev­er end. Or, how else does one describe a situation where a young medical doctor who died in a motor accident on the way to his wedding on October 10, 2013 withdrew about N4.3m from his own account in Union Bank in Kaduna few weeks after his death? Information from the bank indicated that the dead man used the ATM card to make the withdrawals.

A new twist emerged when the dead man applied for an ATM card from his bank and used it to clear his account. A family source said: “When Chidiebere died, we discovered that his mobile telephone num­ber had been blocked. We were surprised because no member of our family told the GSM service provider that Chidiebere had died. So, we took up the matter and it took some time before the line was reactivated.

“We got the shock of our lives after re­activating the line. As soon as we switched on the phone, we began to receive alerts of withdrawals from his account. All the withdrawals were made after he had died and had been buried. During his life time, he did not use ATM cards but in death, he applied for ATM card from the bank in Kaduna and started withdrawing all the money in his account. Worse still, Chidie­bere was not the owner of all the money in the account. One of his brothers who went abroad in search of greener pastures was sending money to Chidiebere to keep for him. Now, the brother is back and Chidie­bere’s corpse had withdrawn all the money as the bank wants us to believe.”

It was learnt that the family has con­tacted the bank on the strange withdrawals but it has been prevaricating over the issue.

    This is a simple case of fraud,what I can deduce from the story is this: the culprit is either a very close family member,a very close friend of the deceased, or bank staff who is aware of the man’s death. The bank should review the photos of the individual who did the withdrawals at the ATM points. The family of the deceased should not be deceived,a dead man cannot use or apply for an ATM card.

    This Is a Scam from the Bank.!!! Is it the dead man that applied for ATM? is it the dead man that requested That his gsm line be blocked? coz without such request GSM operators does not just block someone line just any how like that. you People should investigate further.

    The bank should provide the picture of the dead man who came applied and took ATM card from the . The dead man never applied or used ATM card when he was alive, how come did he do this when he is dead? Please the bank should go and say that to the animals not humans. The family should get thier money from the BANK. There should be no excuse.
