Access Bank, while assuring its customers of the safety of their money, was however defensive.

The Bank stated in a twitter post: “Criminals have posted pages purporting to contain customer account information. We’ve alerted law enforcement agencies and ask that you ignore the post. There is no threat to your account balances. Pls. continue to follow security protocol by never sharing your account details.”
