James Nnorom, a Lagos State resident, has narrated how N100,000 was debited from his Zenith Bank account without his consent.
Nnorom told FIJ that the incident happened on May 2.
“On that day, I discovered that the sum of N50,000 was stolen twice, and in quick succession from my account, and moved into two separate accounts; one, a PAGA account with no recognisable account name, and the other, an OPAY account with the account name Daniel Olamide Dada,” said Nnorom.
“I immediately contacted Zenith Bank to lodge a complaint, but since the incident, nothing concrete has been done to ensure my money is recovered.”
Nnorom said he had since been visiting one of the bank’s branches on Adeola Odeku Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, but nothing had been done to help recover his money.
“I have been frequenting that particular branch but nothing positive has come out of my visit. I have visited more than seven times,” Nnorom said.
“I, also, never compromised my account details before the fraud was perpetrated. I don’t even share my debit card details with anyone. This is really disappointing. In the Nigeria we live in now, N100,000 is a lot of money.
“It’s been over a month since the money was stolen from my account and there’s still no solution in sight from the bank.”
An email to Zenith Bank’s customer care desk for comments on Friday morning, but it had not been responded to at press time.
