This happened to my friend yesterday, thou it happened to me indirectly because i borrowed her the money. she was matched with a guy who was supposed to pay her on mmm, on the day he is to pay, the guy called her to tell her that he was going to pay her that he is in the bank so few minuets later, she got a credit alert text.
Then immediately the guy called her to ask her to please confirm his payment she agreed to do that. While she was trying to log in, she was missing her captcha so she decided to use another browser, while she was trying to load the browser a thought came to her to even check her account balance. She went to the text she got and found out that her total account balance is missing.
She was confused because its unlikely for Gtbank to send u credit alert and not include your balance. Then the guy called back. She told him she is trying to verify something that she will confirm when she is done, the guy tried persuading her to buy. thank God she didn’t. She went to the ATM that evening and Lo and behold the money wasn’t in her account. The message she saw was a bulk SMS constructed like a bank alert that was why her account balance wasn’t there.
Imagine how many people this guy must have scammed and get away with it. If she had confirm him, there is nothing mmm could have done because the guy had been confirmed already. So please let’s be smart. Make sure your account balance reflect in your credit alert before confirming.
