A health worker in Calabar, Cross River State, Walter Ikani, has narrated how N1.6 million mysteriously vanished from his Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) account.

Ikani told FIJ that he visited the bank several times and wrote to them after the incident, but nothing positive came forth despite his efforts.

The health worker said that the fraudulent activity that took place on his account happened six days after he requested a new ATM card.

He said that on August 7, he received a call from an unknown number and the speaker sounded like an automated voice reading out a set of numbers.

“Confused at the voice message, I quickly hung up the call, only to see a series of alerts, about eleven of them, to the tune of N1,650,000, from my GTBank account,” Ikani told FIJ.

He stated that he was surprised to see that SportyBet was the recipient of the unauthorised transaction on his account.

Ikani said immediately after the series of debit alerts, he contacted his account officer, who promised to restrict his account and escalate the issue.

“I searched the internet for the Sportybet customer care contact and registered my complaint.

“The first representative I spoke with asked me to report the case to GTBank so they could liaise with them to resolve the dispute because they could not oblige me as an individual,” Ikani said.

“The second customer care representative was a bit more considerate.

“She told me that the funds had been further transferred to a Palmpay account, which she read out to me”, Ikani added.
