A Nigerian lady who runs a jewelry shop took to her online platform to voice her frustrations over what she alleges to be an unjust reversal of a payment by her bank.
Aduniewa shared her harrowing experience in a TikTok video, detailing how she conducted a successful business transaction with a customer, only to later discover that the funds had been deducted from her account without her consent.
According to Aduniewa’s account, after delivering the jewelry to the customer, the payment was promptly made, and she duly confirmed receipt of the transfer.
Days later, she was shocked to find that the money had been deducted from her account.
Her bank informed her that the same customer had flagged the credit alert as a “mistaken transaction.”
Aduniewa expressed her bewilderment at her bank’s decision to reverse the transaction without prior notification or verification.
The online community has rallied behind Aduniewa, with many expressing outrage and suggesting that her bank may be complicit in the alleged mishandling of funds.
Social media users have been quick to offer advice, with some urging her to consider legal action against the bank to recover the funds she believes she is owed.
