I came across this very alarming post on Facebook and I'm wondering how rampant this is:

Equity bank (k ) limited: Are our deposits/ monies safe with you?
Faith Wanjiku is a 73 yrs old lady who sufferes from high blood pressure, and is therefore in need of a tremendous assistance with relatively mundane tasks; opened an account with Equity bank on the 31st day of may 2019.
Shortly thereafter she sold her land, her only asset and possession, at around Kshs. 2 million, which money was deposited in her account, which money she was to buy another piece of land with and possibly built a simple house to live in the rest of her life.
She remitted her first installment of around Kshs. 1 M a few days later ,and was to complete payment of the purchase price upon attainiing consent of the LCB.
Unfortunately, this was not to be.
On the 16th day of July 2019 the sum of Kshs. 970, 216 was illegally siphoned from her account in 4 series of transactions using the Eazzy App platform by Equity in the following sequence.
(1). Ksh 300, 030. 00 to Vivian Jelagat Kips
( 2). Ksh 300, 030. 00 transfered to Anthony Babu Kaira
(3). Ksh 300, 030. 00 Kelvin Maina Mwaniki
(4). Ksh 70, 000.00 to various equity numbers.
Note:
- Faith does not own a smart phone.
- Faith has never registered to or subscribed to Eassy App or sought any service from them.
- Faith was never notified when the Eassy App account was opened linking her account with it despite having given her contacts to the bank during A/C opening.
- Faith has never lost her ATM .
Upon reporting the illegal siphoning of funds from her account she was asked to wait for investigations to be completed by the bank, while already blaming her in that she gave out her ATM PIN to a third party.
After giving her the run around for over a month and constant demand they (Equity) revert, eventually came up with a volumous report, which they refused to share with her or give her a copy; Faith was simply told that because her sister assisted her to withdraw money from an ATM(Remember she is sick and her sister is her sole and trusted caretaker) they could not assist her, she compromised her PIN.
She demanded to know:-
*If her sister was a suspect? The answer was no.
* Did her sister open the Eazzy App ?the answer was no.
They confirmed.
1. She had never opened an Eassy App account.
2. The theft was not as a result of the pin or her sister assistance.
They (Equity) concluded:-
That they will not give the money back to the poor, now homeless old ailing lady.
Faith needs her money back , her project has stalled, she has been left Destitute, she is in default of a land agreement, she is now landless, destitute, sick and in need of medication.
All because of negligence of Equity Bank (K) limited.
Her deposits/monies, life's work, was squandered through Equity in 4 transactions, they have denied liability, They have thrown her out in the cold.
FAITH IS DESPERATE.
TODAY IS IS FAITH.
TOMORROW IT WILL BE YOU.
YOUR DEPOSITS/MONEY IS NOT SAFE WITH EQUITY BANK (K) LTD.

Beware of fake news and fake posts.
The funniest are the alarmist whatsapp group ones.
Sometimes they are started by competitors of companies
Sometimes they are started by unemployed idlers
Sometimes they are started by prisoners in Kamiti
The funny thing is most Kenyans actually believe them.
Sad.

Hii tume kwa DCI if you have his contacts and you will hear some results if it is proven to be true. Remember to indicate how to contact Faith...
When I have money, I get rid of it quickly, lest it find a way into my heart.

This must be inside job stuff. Equity must have put in enough resources for this to happen.

Equity had the capacity to probe this case without DCI and Social media being involved.This has really dented their image.

Money moves from the account of the lady to someones account or phone.......the recipient is all they needed to crack the matter.Telling the lady off and blaming her for giving out her Equitel password was plain silly and daft on the part of the officer handling the matter.
Love is beautiful and so are those who share it.With Love, Marriage is an amazing event in ones life time, the foundation of joy, happiness and success.

It's all cause of old people do not really have a need to get educated with all that tech stuff which is coming out, as for me I bought smart phone like 2 years ago and still not use it to the fullest anyway. Obviously inside job like many stated already.
