Below is a post shared on Twitter about how MTN made a Nigerian lady lose a huge sum of money over swim swap issue.
Dear Nigerians, please disconnect your BVN and very huge accounts from your MTN
@MTNNG sim card. A friend just got robbed of over N1million because MTN allowed a random user swap her sim (Full details in thread).
So Miss Joy got a message yesterday from MTN that her MTN sim has been swapped. She did not request for a sim swap, she has never attempted a sim swap Sim swap is when a new sim takes ownership of another number, transferring all old details to new sim.
The MTN sim in question is thr one that has her BVN registered on and is also connected to all her bank accounts.
Miss Joy immediately called her banks (Ecobank and UBA) to block transactions from her account but she was too late. Under 15mins 1million naira was already transferred from her ECObank account, 200,000 was transferred from her UBA before it got restricted.
Apparently your details are not safe with MTN
@MTNNG . Your bank account is not safe Your bvn is not safe MTN IS A SCAM.
