Haven Of Fraud: GTB Staff Connives With Fraudsters To Dupe Customers Inside Banking Hall
Banks are supposed to be safe haven where people take their money to for safe keeping, but what is happening in Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) seems to be a reverse of the case.
The Segun Agbaje led bank have metamorphosed into a centre where fraud reigns supreme and customers develop hypertension thereby causing them death.
In what seems like a contrived plan, informed sources revealed to us that some of the staffer in conjunction with hired dupers whom they bring in every morning and give some bank forms to hold, while dressed like bankers are in this blooming deal of defrauding customers of huge money.
As customers come in to deposit and walk to the counter, they are purposely delayed, especially those with huge sums ranging from N500 thousand and above. At this point, a GTB rogue sends one of the fraudsters to customers who ask for their Bank Verification Number (BVN) as well as give them a form to fill, while collecting the huge sums of cash in the pretense of going to pay in the bulk room for them to ease the delay in payment, purposely caused by them so as to steal customers hard earned money.
Under the watchful eyes of the bank security men and conniving bankers, the fraudster meets one of the bankers (his crony), talk with them and goes into the bulk room and is never found. Attempts to ask questions on his whereabouts by customers’ falls on deaf ears, as the banks never produce the dupers who walked into the bulk room, but call policemen to chase them away, whip whips and hitting them with gun butts.
One of the customers who reached out to us stated that “Abusidiqu, please help us. Our money is missing with GTB who joined hands with some conmen to dupe us and beating us with security men. This is happening in the branch at Allen Avenue”.
Another source who confided in us revealed that the bank management is fully aware of these evils happening in their bank, but protecting those allegedly involved.
