The Corps member narrated that his phone was stolen by these thieves, and through the device, they were able to gain access to his account information and withdrew all his life savings.

The thieves didn’t stop there as they gained access to the bank account he uses to receive his NYSC allowance and they also used the stolen phone to request a loan from his bank.
