An ATM thief was recently met with ill fate after one of his operations to scam an unsuspecting victim got him caught and arrested.
A Facebook user identified as Vivian Emesaraonye Dimgba narrated how her mum had fallen victim to the thief and how she was robbed of about N500k.
According to Dimgba, it all started after her mum had problems operating the cash dispensing machine, and sought the help of the man who eventually turned out to be a thief, to assist her with the transaction.
However, after a few minutes of operating the machine, the individual told Dimgba’s mum to go and register a complaint at the security post, as the ATM card had gotten stuck. To her surprise, the man had left before she returned.

"She went to the security man, since the bank was already closed and did just that. By the time she came out, the man already left. Oh, he told her he was a policeman," Dimgba’s post read in part.
The real drama started after Dimgba’s mum returned home and got a debit of N300k from her bank account. This was followed by another debit transaction of N100k, leaving about N30k in the woman’s account.
Upon the second withdrawal, Dimgba said her mum and dad driven down to a police station to report the situation. However, not a lot could be done since it was hard to tell where the individual was making the withdrawals from.
The man, however, ran out of luck after making a POS transaction that gave away his location.
"At about 1am, he made another transfer. But this time through a POS machine. Eastgate Hotel. Less than 15 minutes walk from my house. He paid for the room, and ordered food as well. We called back the policemen, told them of our findings and they met us at the hotel in less than 30 minutes."
After the hotel had been discovered, Dimgba’s parent with the assistance of the police officers rushed down and cross-referenced the POS transaction with her ATM card number. Fortunately for them, they were able to nab the individual and his side chick, whom he made an initial transfer of N300k to.
