ATM Fraud: Kaduna man sentenced to 6-months imprisonment for transferring N40,000 to his own account

Operatives of the EFCC, have arrested and court sentenced man to six months’ imprisonment for Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Fraud in Kaduna State.

The court matter was presided by Justice Mohammed Tukur Muazu Aliyu, and the sentence was passed on Monday, September 14, 2020 after Adamu Aliyu was found guilty of transferring over N40,000 to himself, from the account of an unsuspected victim, under the false pretense of helping the victim to effect a transfer.

The official handle of the EFCC, shared the outcome of the event, as it should be communicated to Nigerians on how to be careful who they allow assist them when it comes to ATM issues.

In my own opinion when it comes to ATM issues, bankers should learn to educate people more on how to make use to the machine, as most machine and pattern of withdrawer differs from others, and as such, may get most people confused. Best option, tell the helper to teach you by directing with his mouth not fingers.
