Speed Darlington then wondered about what he would have done if the incident had happened to him in another state.

According to him, he was only able to rant online about the experience because the fuel station is within walking distance from where he resides.

In his words:

“Although they have given me back N1.2, I’m on my way to go pick up the remaining. But can you believe this sh*it? I went to buy N17,150 fuel, this man mistakenly punched in N1.7 million and I put in my code without even checking.
"But I don’t blame myself, I am a customer, customer is always right. It’s his job to get it right. I see mouth talk because it is close to me, it’s within walking distance. If this was out of state, what will I have done?”

Man returns N365k mistakenly paid into his account to bank

On January 27, 2022, at around 10am, Stephen Waiganjo received KSh 100,000 (N365k) on his M-Pesa from NCBA Bank Nairobi branch.

Given that he did not expect such an amount of money from anyone, he went about his business while waiting for the rightful owner to reach out and claim it.

The other expectation, as he revealed in an interview, was that Safaricom would initiate a reversal and redirect the money to the correct number, but that too did not happen.
