A Nigerian man has revealed the means in which fraudsters posing as POS Agents withdraw directly from their client’s account.

The emergence of POS agents is one of the best initiatives in recent times as it has helped people cash out quickly without having to go queue at the bank.

But there are always bad eggs who would take advantage of any slight opportunity.

Below is an eye-opening read of how these evil penetrators rob unobserving Nigerians of their hard-earned money.

A lot of customers always run to my office when they’ve been defrauded in one way or the other. I help people in logging dispense error and fraud complains to banks on their behalf, from there I have gained a lot of experience about different methods that fraudsters use to withdraw money from people’s accounts.

Today, I let you know how fraudsters among POS agents can withdraw money from your bank account using your ATM without any OTP pins.

Some POS Agents are fraudsters and some still sell your bank details to fraudsters.

Here are the methods they use;

1. When you get to a fraudsters POS agent. He will tell you there is no Network on his POS.

2. He will ask you to let him use his phone to withdraw money for you using online wallet (Quickteller, Opay, WalletNg etc)

3. He will collect your card to input your card details into his wallet to add your card. Below are details of your card he will input.

4. After inputing your card details including your CVV, ATM card number, ATM expiry date, Your Date of Birth. He will save your card details.

5. After the transaction is successful, the money will enter his wallet and he’ll give you the cash and return your card.

6. First transaction on a card, the bank will send an OTP to your phone to authorize the payment.

7. When you become his loyal customer, he will be using the App to withdraw money from your account.

8. After several withdrawal on your card from the app. The app will recognized your card as an authorized card holder anytime he wants to withdraw money and it will not send OTP to your phone again.

9. Then, he will start withdrawing small amounts of money from your account like N100 for you to keep thinking it is from your bank.

10. That is why many people always see debit alert of small amounts they can’t claim at the bank on their account.

Imagine if he does that for 20 customers per day that is N100 20 = N2000 on his wallet per day.

Please, don’t allow any POS agent to withdraw your money using his phone, if there is no network on POS, wait till there is network or kindly go to bank to withdraw your money.
