The new method I use to steal millions - ATM thief


A 29-year-old primary school drop-out, Adetunji Adesina, has confessed to stealing from bank customers using the ATM machines. .
.
Adesina, who hails from OsogboOsun state, made this revelation on Tuesday after being arrested by the police in BeninEdo State.
.
.
He was arrested while in possession of 10 different ATM cards and cash amounting to N678,000 withdrawn from the account of one Mr. Ekhitomwen Aghama.
.
.
According to the suspect, he met Ekhitomwen at the ATM machine of one the new generation banks along Sapele Road, Benin.
.
.
“I pretended that I wanted to use the ATM machine, then deliberately dropped my phone on the ground. While Aghama was trying to help me, I punched the cardless button on the ATM machine.
.
.
He was, unaware that I pressed the cardless button, so he thought his card was stuck in the machine and went to seek for help from bank workers. At that point, I removed it from the cardless transaction and removed his ATM card.
.
.
I got his ATM pin number when I was pretending to help him and later withdrew 678,000 from his account, using the ATM and PoS, just before I was arrested by the police,” he said.
.
.
Aghama said he went to inform his bank, so that they could block it but was surprised that 20,000 was withdrawn from his account.
.
.
He went back to the bank, but they did not block the ATM. He said a week later, his brother overseas paid about 600,000 into his account and the money was withdrawn by Adesina. 📷: Vanguard
