An individual described how he almost got scammed at an ATM stand on Twitter.
This person went to GTBank to use an ATM. He looked around and joined the long line when he arrived.
A young lady approached him and inquired how much money he wished to withdraw. She claimed that she overdrew money; she was supposed to withdraw N3,000 naira but instead pressed N30,000 naira.
She will give him N20,000 naira in cash, and the individual will transfer the money to her account.
The individual was puzzled because he had been in the queue for about 5 minutes and had never seen this Lady around that ATM, she wasn’t in the queue, and she never made any withdrawals. What ATM did she use to withdraw the 30,000 naira?
Fortunately for him, he told the man next to him in line what the lady said, and the man laughed and said it was old logic.
This is the logic they employ to defraud unsuspecting people.
They come with fake naira notes, he claims, and they press and withdraw the wrong amount.
When you want to get out of the long line, you transfer the money to them, and they give you cash.
You leave happy, thinking you avoided a long line, until you go to buy something with the money and realize you were given fake money.
The man referred to it as “Old logic,” but what saved the individual was that he was a keen observer; she appeared so innocent and beautiful that you wouldn’t suspect a thing.
Let us be cautious out there, especially with the introduction of the new naira notes.
