Cybercriminals have been on the prowl trying to steal, even as banks intensify efforts to warn customers.
There has never been a time we should all be more concerned about the security of our bank accounts.?There are too many scammers/internet fraudsters on the prowl, and they are constantly devising new sophisticated methods to steal your money.
In April this year, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) issued a fraud alert to the Nigerian public about the alarming rate of cybercrime activities in the country. According to the apex bank, cybercriminals resorted to taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to defraud citizens, steal sensitive information, or gain unauthorized access into computers or mobile devices using different techniques.

In the weeks and months that followed CBN’s fraud alert, deposit money banks in the country have all intensified efforts at educating/encouraging their customers to become more careful and protective of their bank accounts. Numerous hands-on tips have also been emailed to these customers by the banks. In this article, we have summarised some of these tips, as you can see below:
Remember, you worked hard for your money and the economic situation in the country at the moment is hard. It would, therefore, be a shame to have your money stolen just because you were careless for a moment. This is why you must do everything possible to protect your bank accounts.

The banned betting and gaming companies are now allowed to access their accounts for limited purposes.
The Central Bank of Nigeria has given some commercial banks instructions to allow betting and gaming companies suspended earlier in the month to approval to?honour?withdrawals from their accounts to pay for winnings, salaries and other overhead expenses.??
Nairametrics saw a copy of the letter addressed to one of the banks.
In one of the memos seen by?Nairametrics, the CBN wrote;?
邓紫棋身高On Quote:邓紫棋身高 “You will recall at the meeting held by the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) with your bank and stakeholders of seven (7) betting and gaming companies on September 11 2020, you pleaded for clemency processing some transactions in violation of the extant foreign exchange regulations. Similarly, the betting and gaming companies intreated the Governor to allow them?discharge?operational expenses.”?
The CBN therefore approved that cheque payments and transfers be made out of the accounts provided it was?towards?winnings, salaries and other overhead expenses.?
邓紫棋身高On quote:邓紫棋身高 “Consequently, the Management of CBN has magnanimously granted your bank the approval to honour?instruments presented by the companies for payment of?winnings, salaries and other overhead expenses.”?
Despite the partial lifting on the ban, the CBN still maintained a “Post No Debit restriction on the account and ordered that “no other transactions should be processed for any of the companies during the period of the waiver” effectively restricting the owners of the companies from accessing to pay capital obligations.??
