Massive Fraud at Trust Bank
Dear Pa, Mr. fair and balanced, you got to trust me, I listen to Freedom radio regularly. I work at Trust Bank as a Senior Clerk. I was denied promotion for many years now because the womanizer Senior H. R Manager said I refused to complete a banking course run by a Nigerian institute where he gets regular kickbacks to maintain his expensive life.
Pa, now at Trust Bank you can get away with fraud if you are related to the Senior Manager H.R. His niece took over GMD500, 000 from a fund called IMPF and nothing came out of it. She is currently not working but running her business and even selling to the bank staff. Sometime ago, some staff who help count cash in the vault were accused of stealing from sealed bundles and they were taken to the Police. The niece of the Senior Manager H.R was not taken to the Police.
Pa, what is making me mad is that just recently the bank said one Mr. AMS was alleged to have committed fraud of about GMD1,000,000. He is currently under investigation. This guy has no connection with anyone in the bank at the moment so we are afraid he will surely go down for it.
I am told by an officer at the fraud squad at the Banjul Police station that the bank’s audit department only detects little fraud amounts of like D1, 000 only and makes so much noise about it. An I.T staff took about D3, 000, 0000 from dormant accounts including an account belonging to the former first lady Zainab Jammeh and went away with it. His colleague reported him that is how the bank came to know about it. The audit department did not detect this fraud and the guy was coming to work every day. This fraud was handled under the table because the guy has powerful relatives who came to the bank and promised to settle.
I wonder what will happen to our dear brother Mr. AMS because the people who should help him get away with this kind of problem have all retired. Pa Trust Bank has the weakest audit system in the banking sector. They have the highest rate of fraud in the banking sector but all the audit department discovers are just small amounts and even there if you have a connection with senior management such as the Senior Manager H.R you can get away with fraud.
The Central Bank has to intervene in the Trust Bank fraud problem because the money belongs to our customers and we who work hard and those with no connection in the bank suffer for no reason. We are denied promotion and forced to go through courses that are not recognized because someone has to get some money out of it. “Cheii Trust Bank Warru naa deh”
