A Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @Dblinkz has taken to social media to accuse a popular Nigerian bank, Sterling Bank, of providing him with fake euros, resulting in a substantial financial loss for his friend.

The man shared his account on Twitter, expressing his frustration and seeking resolution from the bank.

According to @Dblinkz, the ordeal began on January 24, 2023, when he deposited 5,000 euros into his domiciliary account at Sterling Bank’s branch on Ali Alikilu Road in Kaduna.

His intent was to use the funds to make a partial payment for his school fees in the United Kingdom, and he had planned for his friend to convert the euros to pounds upon arriving in the UK.

However, the situation took a troubling turn on May 30, 2023, when @Dblinkz attempted to withdraw the same 5,000 euros.

When he approached the branch where he had initially made the deposit, he was informed that they couldn’t provide him with the full amount at that location and suggested he collect 3,000 euros from them and proceed to the main branch.

Fearing additional withdrawal charges, @Dblinkz refused this offer and chose to visit the main branch to complete the withdrawal.

At the main branch, he received 5,000 euros, all in 500 euro denomination notes.

Regrettably, these funds never made it to their intended destination. @Dblinkz’s friend, who was entrusted with the task of converting the euros to pounds, reportedly encountered a significant setback.

Upon approaching a foreign exchange company, EurochangeFX, the euros were seized as they were deemed counterfeit.

The foreign exchange company purportedly confirmed that the serial numbers on the seized euros matched those held by Sterling Bank.

@Dblinkz shared his frustration and disappointment on Twitter, indicating that he had been patiently waiting for Sterling Bank to address the situation and reimburse the funds, which he described as his hard-earned money.

He also noted that EurochangeFX had provided a confirmation letter with their letterhead to prove that the money was indeed fake.

In the man’s words;

“Ooh Nigeria has happened to me I’m writing this with so much despair, on the 24 January, 2023 I deposited the sum of 5000 euros to my domiciliary account at
at…No 9 Ali Alikilu Road Kaduna branch Nigeria. I went to the bank on the 30th of May, 2023… to make a withdrawal of 5000 euros , I went to the branch I initially deposited the money and they told me they didn’t have the complete 5000 that I should collect 3000 from them and go to their main branch to collect the rest but I refused because they were going to charge me..separately for the different withdrawal I.E service charges.

I then went to the main branch to withdraw the 5000 euros..which I was given 500 euros denomination, the purpose of withdrawing the money was to give to my friend who was going back to the United help me change it to pounds as I was making part payment for my school fees, only for him to go @eurochangeFX and the money was seized as it was discovered to be counterfeit.

I have been patiently waiting for @Sterling_Bankng @suleimana to rectify this and return my hard..earned money but they are dragging their feet . POV the serial numbers had been confirmed to be same with what the bank has in their possession , @eurochangeFX has sent a confirmation letter with their letterhead to proof that the money was fake!!!
