*SCAM ALERT*

I received a mail from *”EFCC”* with the details below:

Good day,

Please kindly find

 attached your invitation letter to our office on the 14Th of December 2021. All necessary details are in the attached document.

Note: Treat as urgent

Thanks

DSP   samuel ajiboye

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission

Address: 15A Awolowo Rd, Ikoyi, Lagos

I was eager to know what EFCC and I have in common that warranted such invitation to their office. So, I opened the attachment and it didn’t open instead it took me to my Yahoo login details.

Unfortunately, I logged in with my email and password and the attachment still didn’t open. So, I left it and went to bed. This morning 13th December, a total of ₦548,900 was illegally transferred from my account.

The hackers changed my bank login details. They requested OTP for forgot password. They requested for OTP to create token seed and the bank granted them. All these transactions started from 1am today. They transferred my hard earned money to various account.

When I called customer care I was asked if I have my debit card with me and the answer was yes. The bank told me that they open a mobile app with my card on another phone to make all the transfers

Although I’m hoping that the bank will do the needful but please be alerted that scammers are daily upgrading their tactics to defraud people. *BEWARE OF SCAMMERS*

 *Lesson learnt*

Do not open mail without checking the address very well.

Do not login your details if you didn’t initiate it yourself
