How Euro Notes I Got From A Nigerian Bank Landed Me Into Trouble In Paris – Actress Ejine Okoroafor

Movie producer and an entrepreneur, Ejine Okoroafor narrate her ordeal in a mall in Paris, France.

According to the actress, she was almost arrested for using ”fake Euro notes” she allegedly got from a Nigerian bank.

Narrating how it happened, she got to know the notes were fake after trying to purchase some items in a mall on Thursday September 16.

She said when she took the money to a bank, the cash machine seized the €2000 that was rightfully placed and rejected the last squeezed €500, with a receipt that the money is fake.

Ejine also claimed that she almost got into trouble when took the money to Moneygram with a friend to confirm its authenticity and eventually had to go to the police station for a report.

She also claimed that when the bank manager of the Nigerian bank was called, he said they’ve been told to “stop issuing that cash.” although she was not informed.

She said:

Thursday, the 16th of September, I was ashamed being a Nigerian. At a mall here in Paris,I went to purchase some items and I was told the Euro notes I had were fake. I bought the money from a well known bank in Nigeria (PTA).

I took it to bank, A cash machine seized the €2000 that was rightfully placed and rejected the last squeezed €500. With a receipt that the money is fake.(because I was advised to pay the money into an account and withdraw in smaller denominations that they hardly spend 500euro)I asked my friend, who lives here to help me with the transaction. So We took d surviving €500 to MoneyGram to confirm its authenticity and we almost got into trouble,dey wanted to call the Police on us.

We eventually had to visit the Police station for her to report,to avoid her account from getting blocked or being negatively affected by this situation.meanwhile I called the bank manager when the atm seized the money, to let him know what had happened ,he said ‘I should have called him when they told me at the mall,I won’t have gone to the bank’. I should return the money.Apparently, he said they had been told to stop issuing that cash and I was never alerted.

The alert would have helped me to be cautious.
Dear Nigerians, avoid the big denominations for now, if you need to collect via PTA system to travel.
It is a real big shame.
Thank You.
