A popular scam mail in Nigeria where a man/woman who claims to be a Prince or Princess of a foreign country, asks an email owner to allow them deposit money in their bank account in return for a cut, has been misunderstood by The Bank Of Ireland.
The Bank Of Ireland had on the 31st of July experienced difficulties in crediting the accounts of its customers. Yesterday, it took to twitter to confirm that the issue had been resolved.
“We can confirm all payments due yesterday were sent to accounts overnight. Please check your account for updates throughout the morning,” it tweeted.
The bank got a reply from a citizen, who said he was expecting $1million from a ‘Nigerian Prince’.
“Still no sign of my $1m from the prince of Nigeria….must be the bank holiday weekend….Tuesday perhaps” – an Irish citizen, The Kenmeister (@the_kenmeister) tweeted.
The Bank seemed not to get the joke but replied Kenmeister, assuring him of his money and advised him to check his account to be sure.
“Apologies all. All payments due yesterday were sent to accounts overnight. Please check your account throughout morning.”
We have a four letter word that starts with ‘Mu__’ for people like this.
