CBN Directs Nigerian Banks To Stop Use Of Credit, Debit And ATM Cards Abroad

THE Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Monday ordered commercial banks to stop customers from using their debit and credit cards outside the country.

Following the latest development, banks are beginning to communicate the apex bank’s directive to customers through emails, noting that it is a “temporary measure”.

The directive, which takes effect from January 1, 2016, will no doubt affect access to foreign online retailers. The measure is seen as part of Federal Government’s efforts to obstruct the flow of foreign exchange out of the country following the intense pressure on the naira in the past week, crossing an all time high of over N280 to the dollar.

Already, the naira on Friday strengthened against the dollar after weeks of free fall at the parallel market, gaining N10 to exchange at N270 to a dollar.

The development, which has created huge forex debts with banks’ international financial partners, has forced many DMBs to stop their customers from using their Automatic Teller Machine cards abroad.

The apex bank spent billions of dollars propping up the currency since it fixed the exchange rate in February and tightened trading rules to curb speculation.

It is not clear how many people will be affected by the latest measure but sources confirmed that Nigerians who travel abroad regularly and use their local cards for shopping and other transactions may be affected.

Some top-end shops in London have signs in Hausa to cater for the large number of Nigerian customers. Already, Diamond Bank and Standard Chartered have emailed their customers notifying them of the ban.

Accordingly, those customers can no longer use the cards in the United Arab Emirates, China and other African countries apart from Nigeria.

Diamond Bank message reads: “Due to the current FX market realities, please be informed that your naira debit card has been restricted for usage in UAE, China and African countries.

Standard Chartered Bank message reads: “This is to notify you that from January 1, 2016, your naira card will no longer be enabled for international use. This is as a result of the limited foreign exchange supply in the financial market”

DISREGARD SUCH EMAILS FROM FRAUDSTERS

Please disregard such emails from fraudsters claiming to be a Bank.

Some indicators you need to watch out for:

- Check their email address and you will realize it is not from your bank's official email address.

- They always ask you to click on a link to complete the instructions in the email. Please do not click on the link; roll your mouse over the link & you will realize that the link is not from your bank's website.

- The emails from these fraudsters always make it seem like something will go wrong with your account if you do not follow the instructions in their email. Please do not panic; it is only part of their strategy to make you comply.

If you are not sure of any email, you can contact your bank directly or you can email us (complaints@globalbankissues.com) to advise if the email is fraudulent or not.

Below is a screenshot of an email we received today:
