A Nigerian man named Timothy Ofoegbu has gained recognition on social media for his act of returning N3.7 million that was mistakenly sent to his account.

Timothy took a screenshot of the credit alert and explained how he managed to return the money to the sender through social media.

Instead of going through the complex bank process, Timothy decided to post about the money on social media, which caught the attention of the sender.

“…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…”

People commend Timothy Ofoegbu

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.”
