Students If You Own An Access Bank Account, You Must Read This– Access Bank has warned its customers to be on the lookout for fraudsters who are using new methods to swindle people of their money.
The bank said fraudsters contact their potential victim via mail, phone call or text to request for their bank details with the promise of crediting their account.

The bank warned that the fraudsters often come under the guise of government officials, social advocates and false non-governmental organisations(NGOs), with the power to share the relief fund that was promised by the government.
This, unfortunately, is a fraudulent scheme and given the state of affairs, an easy scam to fall for, it said.
The bank’s Executive Director, Retail Banking, Victor Etuokwu, said: “Access Bank is imploring its customers to be wary of any message, demanding their personal or bank details.
Customers must remember that the bank will never ask for their BVN, full card PAN, PIN, mobile app activation code, OTP or password as it is readily available to the Bank via its database.
Any call, email and text message, claiming to be from Access Bank and demanding for any of these details is certainly a scam.
“Also, customers are advised to refrain from sharing user-generated codes when migrating from the old Diamond Bank app to the Access More app.
With knowledge of this pin, these fraudsters can gain entry to your bank app, and from there have access to the money in your account.’’
Etuokwu advised customers to be vigilant and report suspicious activities to the bank.
