Shock as Woman Withdraws Ksh 800,000 from Bank Only to Find Notes are Fake Upon Reaching Home
Legendary Papi, an individual in the X online community from Nigeria, has launched a series of attacks against a local bank, alleging that they provided him with counterfeit money.
He complained that he visited one of the bank’s branches and withdrew 4.2 million Naira, equivalent to 800,000 Kenyan Shillings. However, upon reaching home, he discovered that all the money was fake. He lamented that he intended to use the funds to pay his child’s school fees.
The man explained that he had foreign currency, 5000 Euros, which he deposited in the bank branch. He was then told that to receive Nigerian Naira, he needed to go to the main branch. Upon doing so, he received a bundle of notes that he later found out were all counterfeit.
“Oh, Nigeria has disappointed me. I’m writing this in utter despair. On January 24, 2023, I deposited a total of 5000 Euros into my @Sterling_Bankng home account at No 9 Alikilu Road Kaduna branch in Nigeria. I went to the bank on May 30, 2023, to withdraw the 5000 Euros. I went to the branch, and they told me they didn’t have the full 5000 Euros and asked me to take 3000 Euros from them and go to their main branch to collect the rest, but I refused because they wanted to charge me extra for the different withdrawal,” he narrated.
“Then I went to the main branch to withdraw the 5000 Euros, intending to give the money to my friend who was returning to the UK to help me exchange it for pounds, as I was using part of it to pay my school fees. However, he went to @eurochangeFX, and the money was confiscated as it was discovered to be counterfeit. I have been patiently waiting for @Sterling_Bankng to rectify this and return my hard-earned money, but they are avoiding me,” he concluded his grievances.”
