He was told the money landed in the man's account but that it has been moved. The bank, therefore, froze the taxi driver's account.

In an interview with Legit.ng, the man said:

"I ordered for the ride from Phase 1 to Ologolo Bus Stop this morning and the amount for the ride was 1,300 but unknowingly, I sent 130,000 which I didn’t notice until an hour later that I want to make another transaction.
"All aid to get in touch with me was failed coz he wasn’t picking up not even on the app. I wrote their customer service on the app, they requested for the receipt of the transaction which I sent to them but they never replied again till this moment.
"So I went to the guy bank which is Gtbank. They confirmed the money and told me the guy already transferred it out to another of his account.
