How to protect your Bank account and ATM Card in Nigeria
Posted on: January 16, 2017, 01:45:11 PM
Are you interested to protect your account from Foreign and Nigerian scammers, if that is the case then i will tell you more on how to keep your bank account and ATM card safe to avoid people using your account without your knowledge.

Am sure some people believes that is impossible for someone to hack or gain access to someone's account but trust me if you are not careful enough you can disclose account or ATM cards secrete pins and details without you knowing that is why banks always warn you about disclosing you account details or pins to anyone.


To protect You bank accounts and your ATM cards you must be aware that No bank will ever ask you to activate your account over the phone or to send your ATM card pin to them through phone or email and when ever you see such email or an sms kindly delete it and pretends as if you don't see anything.

Sometimes the scammers will send you a mail or phone that your ATM card has been deactivated that you should visit some certain website address for more details ot to re-activate it or to call a certain phone number for more details or to re-activate you ATM card or account.

Take not that all this is a scam and you must not call any phone number or visit any website to Activate you account or ATM card because they want to use that mode to acquire your account and ATM Details and pins which will enable them withdraw your money or use it to buy goods and services online.
