Man who returned KSh 658k mistakenly sent to his bank account compensated

A Nigerian man who was recently praised on social media after returning KSh 658,000 mistakenly sent to him has talked about the whole incident.

In an interview with a local Nigerian publication, Julius Eze said although he had needs at the time he received the money, he had no intentions of keeping it.

He also spoke on how his family reacted to his thoughtful move, noting that his dad called him and expressed how proud he was to have such a honest son.

“I never had intentions of hoarding the money or use it for my personal use. I know it’s not mine and nobody could have sent such to me as at the time sent,” he said.

On how he was compensated for retuning the money, Eze said the owner of the KSh 658k gave him KSh 13,000, an act which made him really happy.

He, however, explained that he did not return the money with the aim of getting a compensation.

“I feel super excited and good! I feel fulfilled because I know no matter how rich he is the money will still affect his business and probably his mental health,” he said.

In July, Eze said he found the aforementioned amount deposited in his bank account between Friday night, July 9, and Saturday morning, July 10, when banks were closed.

The young man received three credit alerts, the one a sum of KSh 131,000 and another KSh 263,000 the morning after.

Seconds later, Eze received yet another KSh 263,000.

Through his Facebook page, the youthful man stated that he would visit the bank on Monday, July 12 to return the money to its right full owner.

“I am finally at the bank! It’s not my money. Late Friday evening and early Saturday morning, I received an alert transfer of money into my bank account totaling KSh 658,000. A few hours later I was able to trace the owner,” he wrote in part.
