After counting the $15,000, I left the banking hall and went to the spot where the person who wanted to collect the money was already waiting for me. ”Immediately I saw him, I handed over the money and my phone also. It was after he had gone that I regained my conscience; at that point I became confused I didn’t know where to search for the person. ”I don’t know what happened to me that fateful day, because that was not the first time I was sent to bank to withdraw money.
