Following the report of viral video from the social media making the rounds that a customer who used a POS machine had his account tampered with resulting to loss of cash weeks after a transaction leading to loss of cash, the Association of Point of Service Agent-APOSA have described the report as false and misleading.

In a statement issued by the Association signed by the Chairman Mohammed Olaytunji and the Secretary Ariko Chidi and made available to newsmen in Owerri said the claim by the customer is not true as there is no POS machine that can make withdrawal after a transaction without an ATM card or a pin code.

The statement pointed out that POS services are regulated by bank regulations hence the claim by the customer is unattainable and untrue and explained that the video is targeted to discredit the operation and business of the business in Imo state.

Nigeria, the statement pointed out is yet to acquire a POS machine that can do what the customer is allegeding and expressed worry that a reputable radio station in Owerri can go ahead to air such a sensitive report without hearing from APOSA the body controlling the operation of POS in Imo State.The Association said though they are new efforts have been made to ensure that POS operation in Imo State strictly confirm to the regulation of the bank and maintained that POS agents and operators are not as bad as they are been portrayed.

APOSA blamed the radio station for running a live radio program on the false and misleading video without getting to them for fair and balanced report.

A bank staff in charge of POS machines in one of the popular commercial bank in Owerri debunked the claim of the customer in the viral video and advised customers with a problem with a POS machine or operator to approach the bank for verification and explanation as there could be what he called delayed alert.
