Don’t ever “borrow” anyone your account number to receive money’ – Police PRO Dolapo Badmos

Dolapo Badmus has revealed that a man will likely spend Christmas in prison after he made his account number available for a friend to transfer money, not knowing the money was gotten through fraudulent means.

The CSP added that the friend is now on the run and the one who gave his account number for the transaction is left to pay the price.

She warned people to desist from “borrowing” their account numbers to people who want to receive money through their account.

She tweeted: “Don’t ever “borrow” anyone your account number to receive money, your account should be for your own usage..someone is in custody for borrowing a “friend” his account, he never knew the money they are transferring through him is fraudulent. Ignorance isn’t an excuse before the law.

“It’s so risky to just release your account number for transactions you can’t guarantee. Local man ‘may’ be spending Christmas in detention, more so that the friend is on the run. Investigators said only his “friend” can clarify his innocence unfortunately friend is nowhere in sight.”
