Chiamaka Jennifer, a Lagos-based former staff with Zenith Bank, is calling on the bank to completely refund over N4 million fraudulently transferred from her account on January 9.
According to the ex-staff who lost her job last month, her money was transferred into two accounts — N3.2 million into an Access Bank account belonging to one Malikalu Isah and N102,000 into one Bakabe Abdulrahman Sani’s account domiciled with United Bank for Africa (UBA).
The bank, however, said only N800,000 out of N3.2 million wired into Isah’s Access Bank account could be salvaged. Jennifer in a video posted on her Twitter handle explained that the bank told her to get a court order before they could probe the crime further.
She explained that the account from where the money was moved was her staff account and, she believes that the account was compromised by an insider as the money was moved in a few minutes.
Jennifer received a debit alert of N3.7 million to the Access Bank account around 8. 43 pm on January 9, and within a minute she received another alert of N222, 900 to the same account. In the interval of five minutes, there was another debit alert of N102,000 to the UBA account, leaving her account with N12,000.
The victim further revealed that she was shocked when such huge amount left her account when the daily transfer limit on her account is N200,000.
FIJ had reported that Zenith Bank told the lady she should thank God for being alive after losing her money.
According to the medium, Zenith Bank told the victim it was liable for the incident since her e-Token and four-digit secret PIN details were used to enroll on the Mobile Banking App on a device.
At press time, an enquiry sent to Zenith Bank had not been responded to.
