A video is trending on social media where a man claimed to have successfully hacked into the Access Bank system and retrieved over 2,000 customers’ account details.
The 2 minutes 27 seconds video shows an A4 paper bearing the old Access Bank logo as well as numbers allegedly customers’ account details.
The alleged hacker said he has a lot of other information that could allow him debit users as the bank could not keep their customers’ details safe.
Boasting about his ‘criminal exploit’, he said he is “not a staff of the bank but a guy with a computer sitting down in his room and trying to do amazing things”

I’m not surprised. Access diamond customers have been the most susceptible to scammers.
When you get scammers calling to ask for your one time pin it is likely you use access bank

While this may be cruise (or not), I know of 3 people whose earnings were fraudulently withdrawn without any of them divulging their pins.
If you know of anyone who has been “called” from their bank to update BVN, chances are it’s an Access Bank customer. @myaccessbank
