It's new that scammers are everywhere. You should avoid sharing your personal contact as warned by UBA. To help you know what should be kept off scammers or any other person, I've researched and collected the following data. Please don't share them with just anybody even if he claims to be your bank representative.


Scammers often use various tactics to trick people into revealing their sensitive personal and financial information. To protect yourself, you should never share the following bank details with anyone, especially with individuals or entities that you don't trust:


  1. PIN (Personal Identification Number)
  2. Passwords
  3. CVV (Card Verification Value) or security code on your credit or debit card
  4. ATM card number
  5. Internet banking login details
  6. Mobile banking login details
  7. One-Time Password (OTP)
  8. Account number
  9. Bank verification number (BVN)
  10. Mother's maiden name
  11. Date of birth
  12. Social Security Number (SSN) or National Identity Number (NIN)
  13. Account balance
  14. Credit or debit card expiry date
  15. Any other financial information that you feel uncomfortable sharing
  16. Swift code or IBAN (International Bank Account Number)
  17. Chequebook number

If you've already shared this information, you take prompt actions to save yourself your lifetime savings.

  1. Contact your bank or financial institution immediately: Notify your bank or financial institution about the situation and ask them to freeze your account to prevent any unauthorized transactions. They will also be able to guide you on how to secure your account and what further steps to take.
  2. Change your passwords: Change all the passwords associated with your bank account and any other accounts that share the same password.
  3. Monitor your accounts: Keep a close eye on your bank statements and transaction history to identify any suspicious activity. Report any unauthorized transactions to your bank immediately.
  4. Report the fraud to the authorities: Report the fraud to the relevant authorities such as the police, cybercrime department, or consumer protection agency.
  5. Be cautious in the future: Be cautious when sharing personal or financial information online, and do not click on suspicious links or respond to emails from unknown sources.
