Never offer your account number to receive money without knowing the reason – Dolapo Badmus
CSP Dolapo Badmus has advised Nigerians especially in this Yuletide season to be very careful when giving out their account numbers to receive money.
Through her social media platform, CSP Badmus reiterates that one needs to be careful when dishing out their account number in which she gave an instance where a man got himself into a major trouble after he gave his number to a friend without knowing the source. Unknowingly to the young man the money was gotten fraudulently and then transferred to him.
See her complete tweet below;
“Don’t ever “borrow” anyone your account number to receive money, your account should be for your own usage..someone is in custody for borrowing a “friend” his account, he never knew the money they are transferring through him is fraudulent.Ignorance isn’t an excuse before the law.
“It’s so risky to just release your account number for transactions you cant guarantee.Local man ‘may’ be spending Christmas in detention,more so that the friend is on the run. Investigators said only his “friend” can clarify his innocence unfortunately friend is nowhere in sight.”
