N585,000 Savings Withdrawn From Pensioner’s Diamond bank Account By Fraudsters


The plight of Mrs. Comfort Ashaye, whose pension was withdrawn from her bank account without her knowledge makes one wonder if monies kept in banks are actually safe.

Media personality and President/Founder of the Consumer Advocacy Foundation of Nigeria, Sola Salako Ajulo, shared the story of Mrs. Ashaye, who woke up one morning in March this year, to discover that all her savings had disappeared.

When mama made a compliant at Diamond Bank, the issue was not resolved, but after her issue was made public, the Diamond Bank promised to get back to her.

Bad News: Mama’s Husband died last night!😢

Diamond Bank Again!

Mrs Comfort Ashaye is a Pensioner. Her pension is paid into her Diamond Account (statement in pic). On March 28 2017, her total pension was withdrawn overnight by fraudsters. Total of N585k was wired out of the account, leaving Mama with a balance of N2.07!

According to Mama, she went to her branch opposite Motorways Plaza Toll Gate area of Ikeja and the Branch manager shooed her away without letting her make a formal complaint.

She reported to a radio journalist Mr Joseph Folorunsho who tried to investigate but the same branch manager (her name is Ijeoma) threatened to lock him up and called security to harass him. As we speak, Mama Ashaye cannot explain what happened to her money.

This is the 3rd case of fraudsters wiping out consumer’s funds via online or phone platforms from Diamond Bank.

Please help share Mama Ashaye’s story until Diamond Bank investigates and refunds her pension.


From reports, Diamond bank said mama fell victim of fraudsters, who called and claimed they were employees of the bank and requested for her bank verification number.

According to Diamond bank, the fraudsters were able to make withdrawals from her account through her BVN.

    The manager of that bank should be thoroughly investigated with all the staff and sacked if need be. That’s how they steal from their customers accounts.
