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,,, and many others, you will get to know what I am meaning. So please, don’t be tricked to fall victims. Over to you.

    I met Esther Jafer, lady, on Facebook. We became friends and started communicating through emails as her account on Facebook dispeared. She was asking for help of which I was ready to lend her. She became quite at least for a month when she finally sent me an email saying she now moved to London from Senegal. claimed she instructed the UBA bank senegal to issue me a prepaid ATM visa card worth US$120,000 and gave me a link to what she called ATM Department for the processing of the ATM. I am now being asked to sent money ($245) to the claiming department manager – Dr Morris Williams for shipment of the card. But am suspicious so I have not payed yet. Could this be real??

    • Asah Darlington says:

      It may be a fraud, because I had a friend on Facebook by name Fahima Feruzi. She asked me to aid her in transferring money from her late father’s account to my account because she is at a refergee camp in Senegal and can’t do that transaction. She then told me to contact the bank with an email she gave me with all my details. Finally the bank ask me send an amount of money to start the process of which I refuse. She stopped mailing me for about three months. She recently sent me an email with different name(Fahima Robert) that she has successfully transferred the money and she has moved from Senegal to London. She then told me that she has issued an ATM card with a registration number having an amount of $250,000.00 as a token for my effort, despite I could not help her transferring the money. She told me to contact the ATM Visa card head office at Dakar Senegal through their email of which I did exactly. The bank asked me to send my details :first name, second name, last name, country, state, city, home address, occupation, marriage status and my ID card number. But am not gonna send it to them because it could be a scam.

  9. Paul says:

    I would say that i am the newest of their ‘clients’ and up to now, they have requested my personal details. But before i give them, i just thought maybe i should look up these people and find out who they are, and now i am typing this message..

    Thanks to everyone here for your comments on your experiences, they really help. Looks like these scammers take advantage of the fact that people need money, i mean who doesn’t dream of their bank account exploding with loads of $money$. So right now, i am thinking of just playing along and see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

    The ‘temptation’ is somewhat, irresistible. I will post again when we get to the part of wanting ‘money to cover charges’,. charges my foot

    • Tyler Wilson says:

      I felt the same way, thought maybe a thousand or more would be the last money they wanted from me, so they could send me the thousands they said I was going to get. $16,000 later! I still didn’t get a dollar from them. So I stopped responding to them and knew they were robbing me got as much money as they could get. I got screwed and robbed and can’t do anything legally because Canada has no control over anything in Africa/Senegal. I learned my lesson the hard way and am a sucker for thieves like this.

I’m waiting till Monday to get an email from her about this pass code. I just saw this website and read all the stories and I think I’ve just hit rock-bottom.

    • Ann Murray says:

      Hello Tyler,
      Are you able to tell me the Priest’s name as I have also been taken by a Reverend Paul Johnson in Dakar to send $680 for the DHL to send the card, stupedly I sent it but regret it now. His accomplice is a lady called Kate Denis, they push you to pay! The UBA ATM card I have here came with no pin, the so called bank emailed me to pay an Activation fee of $3400, wow I have not got that sort of money and will not be sending it, this card is supposed to have $400,000 on it well one wonders if it holds even $10 what a fool I was! Tyler I certainly would like to know the name of your Reverend that was in touch with you. Been well scammed!!!

      • Tyler Wilson says:

        I got scammed from the so called UBA for at least $17,000 for the past year I fell for it. Over and over again the guy said “oh sorry that didn’t work, I need $5000 for insurance on the $186,000 waiting for you, but we need the money first” after I sent that much there would be something else I had to pay for. I fell for it time and time again. I feel like an idiot and am gullible for these scams.

They have informed me that in order to activate the card and get access to the money I need to send them $350 activation fee and within 12 hrs of they receiving the card the $300k will be put on the card and ready to use at any ATM up to $10k per day. After reading ng this article how can I verify this is fake or real. As I said I did no the person who’s name they said left me the money although only online. Can anyone tell me more. Thanks in advance

    • KWS Adams says:

    • Wilhelm Hamann says:

      It is most definitely a Nigerian 419 Internet upfront payment scam. Do not send them any money. The even construct fake accounts for you on the Internet making it look like there is a helluva lot of money in that bank account – all available to you.

      It is all rubbish! There is no such money available to you.

      Do not fall for it!

    • Ann Murray says:

      Hello Tom,
      This is definately a scam do not get taken in, I was but luckily have realised now with all the emails that it is a scam, they are very switched on with conning us and will play with our minds with thousands of dollars to attract us. Good luck but seriously cut them off!!!
