Standard Bank Fraud

My wife accidently logged onto an email link to Standard Bank to update her banking details as requested. Within 3 hours all the following happened. There were 15 beneficiaries created, all Standard Bank accounts on my account without a onetime password. There was R81 600.00 transferred to these 15 Standard Bank accounts. All the money was withdrawn from these 15 Standard bank accounts within 5 minutes and the accounts were closed and reported as untraceable within Standard Bank. When my wife went to Standard Bank within 3 hours of the fraud, they closed my account to prevent any further fraud. Three days later Standard Bank reported to me that they are sorry they cannot get my money back. This sounds like fraud within Standard Bank and worth investigating. It looks like the thieves are operating within Standard Bank.

    Standard bank fraud report e mail is so long that is almost imposible to reach you. your bank is helping nigerians to ripoff people and your bank does not have even one fax no to report and over the phone they give one meter long e mail to report. ben

    I went to the A.T.M to withdraw money. I checked the balance first and I saw that my money was still there, but when I tried to withdraw money the machine just gave me a slip which said the transaction cannot be processed and that I should visit my branch and all my money was gone. When I checked the balance I had nothing left. I couldn't go to my brach as it was late and it was Saturday so I phoned and the opperator was ignorant when I told him what happened. This was not the first time this happened, before they used to send my bank statement incomplete and when I checke with them they just told me it's the way their computers are programed. I think it's not fair what they are doing because they are going to loose their clients through fraud

    Fight it! They have to give you your money back! Same thing happened to a friend and she got her money back. Have a good look! You will see that the URL (web address) did not go to Standard Banks website where your wife "logged in".
