A Nigerian man has received accolades from people after dishing out a piece of advice on how to avoid being defrauded.

According to him, someone’s Bank Verification Number (BVN) can be stolen during a transaction which will be subsequently used to empty the victim’s account.

He advised people who patronise POS operators to make sure they hold the machine till it approves the transaction.

After the transaction has been approved, the customer should press the red (cancel) button so that the transaction and card details will be erased from the POS system.

According to him, if this is not done, the POS vendor, if fraudulent, can access the customer’s BVN and send it to fraudsters who would hack into the account and empty it.
