Timothy Ofoegbu, a Nigerian man, has been widely praised on social media for his integrity after returning N3.7 million that was mistakenly transferred to his account. Rather than dealing with the often cumbersome bank procedures, Timothy took a more direct approach by posting about the erroneous deposit on social media.

He shared a screenshot of the credit alert and provided a detailed account of how he managed to return the money to its rightful owner. His post quickly garnered attention and was eventually seen by the person who had sent the money in error. Through this platform, they were able to connect, and Timothy facilitated the return of the substantial amount.

“…Friday morning, I went to the bank to inform them and see how it can be transferred back to the owner. It was to be a complicated process that will involve a lawyer and even a court order due to money laundering and terrorism issues.

“I posted it on social media so that I will get more ideas how to handle it and if possible , track down the owner . That helped a lot.”


When Timothy connected with the sender, it was then he learnt that the man based in Niger State was battling with his health by virtue of the wrong transfer.

Before returning the money, Timothy said he told the sender to give him the number of the man it was originally intended for.

It was at that point Timothy found out that the original recipient of the N3.7 million was a distant relative.

In his words: “…I insisted that he must give me the number of the man that he wanted to transfer the money to for background checks.

“I got the shock of my life when I called him. He turned out to be a distance cousin of my mother . Both of us grew up in Maiduguri. We know each other but have not seen since 1992. He was screaming for joy and I was also happy.

“This morning the money had been returned to the owner . I had peace as a river in my heart when the money left my account because I know that it will bring peace to both men…”


See some reactions that Timothy Ofoegbu's gesture:

Quote
Chidimma Nwosu said: “You did well. “But I think the sender should stop doing mobile transfer for now, since he makes mistakes with name, you can imagine losing 5.2 million in this economy within 6. months.”

Rita Uche Nwafor said: “You and your mother’s maternal cousin have same surname that’s strange. “Welldone.”

Buchi Isra’el Collins said: “I just wanted to see the balance you blocked that’s all… … “My heart was full of joy reading this testimony. This is the Light we are CALLED to shine in this very dark world. Now God Is glorified. GLORY BE TO GOD FOREVER.”
