COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility: Man duped N20,000 by an alleged NMFB Staff

An Applicant of the COVID-19 Targetted Credit Facility Loan, Suyuti Aliyu Bosso has, Friday, raised an alarm over his ordeal with an alleged Staff of the Nirsal Microfinance Bank (NMFB).

According to Suyuti's story, a man he identified as Johnson Oluwatosin Bamidele with Phone Number 07067103268; Kuda Bank Account No: 1100981578 and Paycom Account No: 0006651653 who claimed he works in the Approval and Posting Department of the Nirsal Microfinance Bank had duped him of a sum of N20,000.

Suyuti confessed to have fallen for his prey when he advertised himself as a staff of the Bank stating that the COVID-19 Targetted Credit Facility Loan has been "hijacked internally" and upon paying the sum of N20,000 into the stated bank accounts, he could effect a "manipulation of files" which would in turn grant Approval and Disbursement of the Loan to the Applicant.

He (Suyuti) further confessed that he paid the N20,000 because he needed the loan to finance his business but the scam was dawn on him after paying the initial N20,000 and Johnson demanded for another N20,000 stating that "the Senior Admin of the Crediting Department" has requested for the amount so he could post the Approved loan to the Beneficiary(Suyuti).

The victim who deemed it a necessity to share his story in order to warn the public added that Johnson denied him of further contacts/communication when he told him he had no any other money to pay.

That was awful but pathetic because Nirsal Microfinance Bank warned earlier than now and we spread the warning.

The Nirsal Microfinance Bank had in a public announcement alerted the applicants of the COVID-Targeted Credit Facility Loan, AGSMEIS, etc warning that should anyone contact any of the applicants regarding paying money to secure the COVID-19 Targetted Credit Facility or the AGSMEIS loan, the applicant should firstly call the official number 094621730 for confirmation and ensure to immediately stop all contact with the suspected fraudster as soon as possible.

The Nirsal Microfinance Bank further advised that the applicant should not quickly delete any trail of communication with the suspected scammer instead, the applicant should proceed to report such correspondence through https://nmfb.com.ng/whistleblower.
