A man (name withheld) was recently duped of $30,000 in a Bank.
He was given fake dollar notes totaling $30,000 at the First City Monument Bank (FCMB), trade fair branch.
According to an eyewitness account who sent in the photos, the victim said he went to the FCMB at trade fair complex on Friday, September 11th to buy dollars but the bank didn’t have enough money, so an Hausa man he met inside the bank told him he has 30,000 US dollars and he followed the Hausa man to his office to collect the money.
When he collected the money, they went back to the bank where he transferred the Naira equivalent of $30,000 into the Hausa man’s account. When the victim got home at about 7pm, he was shocked to find out the dollar notes were fake but couldn’t go back to the bank.
So on Monday morning, he went to the Hausa man’s office and told him the money was fake, the Hausa man confirmed it was fake and said he bought the money from FCMB. They went to the bank, laid their complain, but the bank denied giving them the money.
