Despite several upgrades launched by almost all banks in the past one year, Vanguard MoneyDigest findings still show prevalence of malfunctioning systems across all services points provided by virtually all banks in the country.
Though some bank officials would readily attribute the malfunctions to normal defaults in gadgets, the customers remain at the receiving end in the problem.
The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, last week launched a new level of sanctions over such services failures that result into any form of loss to the customers. But from several customer complaints being received at the banks’ portals, the situation is far from being addressed.
Below are some of the complaints.

I carried out a transaction via Point of sales, PoS, terminal in which my N9000 was deducted without the beneficiary’s account credited. I lodged a complaint at your Dutse branch twice. It has been 54 days and the money has not been reversed.

Union Bank customers express dissatisfaction with USSD code, others
I made use of your app to subscribe for my Gotv despite the fact that it said something went wrong during processing. You guys debited me N2005 and the Gotv didn’t receive the subscription fee inside their portal. You are yet to reverse my money back into my account. What’s the meaning of that?

When I try to check my account balance, load airtime from my bank account, I get the response that my account is “inactive.”
The PoS debited my account on a transaction I made to pay for fuel without crediting the beneficiary’s account. I complained and the bank said they are still working on it for two weeks now.

I don’t know why Union Bank stopped giving me my interest. I have not withdrawn money from my account for eight months now.
