fraudster duped lady gtbank

June 19, 2015 – Picture: Girl Duped By Fraudster Inside GTBank Allen Avenue Branch Ikeja Lagos Chased Out By Security Guards 

The sobbing lady pictured above was duped yesterday at a GTBank on Allen Avenue Ikeja.

The lady who identified herself as Rukayat was seen crying inside the bank after a man disguised as GTB banker approached her and other customers on a queue.

In her words:

“He claimed to be an official of the bank and demanded if I had a bank verification number, to which I answered no. He collected the money for ease of the transaction and gave me a verification form to fill”. When I was filling the form, the man went to the counter to talk to a teller.”

To cut the long story short, the man pretending to be a banker later disappeared with Rukayat’s bos’s N14,000.

“The money belongs to my boss. I have just been employed two weeks ago and I don’t know where to get a refund for her,” she said sobbingly.

A bank security guard reportedly ordered her out of the banking hall.

      This is not good for the image of the Bank, something has to be done to prevent such act right in the banking hall.

      @Temi my brother it’s so sad just like you am very sceptical about going home. This is because Nigeria seems to be a rowdy zoo and stories like this makes one cringe. Not just a zoon, but also a jungle.

      Someone with no conscience took a lady’s money unaware where the funds were from. It isn’t just greed, but wickedness.
      I still speak proudly of my country to friends and colleagues here in London, because I love myself and my roots. Its really painful how bad our people are when it comes to money.

    Frausters has devise another means of duping. Thank your God is not a huge sum of money. But why should such act going on in the banking hall without the knowledge of the staff or seccurity? Something is fishy!

    The bank teller the fraudster went to talk to should be arrested. He or She knows about this.

    There are notices in the banking halls that cash meant for deposits should only be given to tellers/officials on the counter. She is a new comment in the system. Please don’t blame GTBank or any other bank.

    It’s a very very simple thing to handle, let the bank provide the cctv footage of that period and get the face of the man and. The teller man he went to meet, IF the bank can not get the cctv, then let them pay her back chikaina
