Ongoing Fake UBA Bank Senegal Visa ATM Card Scams

UBA VISA ATM CARD SENGAL SCAM There have been a number of people who contacted me inquiring about the Ongoing Fake UBA Bank Senegal VISA ATM card where it’s reported that scammers are going on asking people money in terms of USD eg $300 to be sent to them through Western Union in return for mailing the above mentioned client ATM cards. Yes, very many have left comments on this site while others have used the contact us page about the same.

As a response to all out there especially my readers, I am taking this opportunity to let you know that these kind of requests to me looks like scam. Yes, a number of similar posts have been published in scam and fraud alert sites on the internet all mentioning about the same, and which proves to that indeed, such is a scam. I am a UBA bank customer and have never been asked to pay a single fee for mailing my Renewed cards. All I know is I walk into the bank, I am worked on and I move way with my card just like you can see in this other how to get an Instant VISA Debit Prepaid Card post.

Why this looks scam?

From experience, I looked at a number of factors in this message above and confirmed that indeed, this is not real and or legit. Yes, scammers and fraudsters have their own ways in which they do things, and which is involved in the same messages as quoted above. See some highlights below…

A genuine message from the bank will never ask you to send money through Western Union. Yes, at least I know this. Additionally, you will never be asked to expose the Western Union money credentials to in an electronic form. The money is sent to a person other than the bank and which is not what happens for legal bank requests. And so forth… When you check on sites like scamwarners.com, antifraudintl.org, scamsurvivors.com, and many others, you will get to know what I am meaning. So please, don’t be tricked to fall victims. Over to you.
