Good Example Of Fraud

Telecoms technologist connected my SIM tool kit to Access money USSD in 2014 without my consent or permission and against my will but I never visited Access Bank for Mobile financial services, in 2012 I registered legally for Mobile Financial Services in First bank of Nigeria as FirstMonie Classic Agent and since then all I met was restrictions and no Telecoms technologist or software engineer ever connected my SIM tool kit to FirstMonie USSD, after noticing this I wrote a letter to Access Bank Head office to disconnect my SIM tool kit from their Access money USSD because am already operating a mobile money and Mobile banking wallet from First bank of Nigeria and that Airtel money warns that only one Mobile wallet account should be maintained at all times , Access Bank reply proved they will never disconnect my SIM card even when I never accepted Access money, so even when am compling to this Airtel money rule for maintenance of only one mobile money account, Telecoms technologist have created a senerio in my SIM tool kit that is annoying me and I don't know what to do, no connection to where I registered legally but force my SIM connection to a bank I never accepted and they won't disconnect my SIM card because of their fraudulent activities in a customer property.

Imagine an industry whose staffs are full of fraudulent activities, this is what has happened in Nigeria, to start with my own experiences am an operator mobile money agent because I won Airtel money in February 2012, but am still the most furstrated trying to earn a living even as a B Sc Physics because the engagement staffs are demanding money from me and even when I made the payment they demand am still restricted from earnings and Telecom technologist influenced all the telemarketing misbehaving and fraudulent lies online while a winner will keep asking questions till they declare airtime theft a success.

Enjoyed the mobile money story.  Any sense whether the 400 million SSA "users" is based on actual usage or on registration to MM services.  We have found that the % of users can be far lower than those who have registered.  Also is Somalia's rank given in the more detailed information?  Ysage there is high, at least in urban areas, in part because no fees are charged per tarnsfer, etc.   Kas Kalba
