  1. Dear Zenith Bank,
    I want to make a complain of a certain person or group of persons scamming people using Zenith bank account in doing scam, one of such is one Bisola Oladapo with phone number 08143594298 that claims to work with American embassy in Abuja that does travelling documents for people, after several discussions on phone, asked my friend, Lydia Mirilla Davies with phone number 08038914211 and with First bank account number 3024868689 to make some deposit of 74 thousand naira to a Zenith bank account number 2177194515 belonging to James Philibus on the 13th July 2017 (Zenith bank can verify), whom Bisola said is the visa processing officer, after this deposit was made and Lydia was asked to go to Abuja from Port-Harcourt where she lives for bio-metrics which she did on the 27 July 2017 which was the date giving my Bisola Oladapo, that was the end of hearing from Bisola Oladapo up until when this was written, she no longer picks her calls from Lydia or from me, in trying to get in touch with her, Lydia also went to American embassy in Abuja but was told there is no such person.
    I am making this complain because Zenith bank can also help in tracking down these fraud stars that are destroying the image of the country because they are using Zenith bank and maybe other bank accounts to perpetrate there crime, as I write this, this women has placed adverts on her facebook page and other websites of which people are responding to her messages and we do not know how many people has fallen to her trap and how many are going to fall after,
    Please, Zenith bank Should help in investigating this people by calling James Philibus to order and ask him what was the payment of 74 thousand naira paid on the 13th of July that was reported to Zenith bank was for?, Zenith Bank can also ask Lydia 08038914211 about the payment and what was it for?, I know Zenith bank should be wandering why is Lydia not making this complain herself?! I am practically involved in this because I sent her that money and was willing to take care of the rest travelling payments, Please I am pleading again, let us stop this criminals as we don’t know who else will be involved.
    I will upload proves of my sending the money to Lydia Mirilla Davies, Bisola Oladapo’s facebook page and other site and adverts on them showing her crime adverts and contact details.
