Celebrity Police officer Dolapo Badmus has advised Nigerians to desist from offering their account number to anyone to receive money.
In a post she made on her social media page, the CSP wrote on how a man has just landed himself in trouble after he gave out his account number to a friend, without knowing the source of the money.
“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 cant 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.”
She added on Instagram:
