Although POS (points of sale) vendors have significantly altered how Nigerians conduct daily financial transactions, there are currently no customer-focused regulations for agency banking, particularly concerning the management of their data and privacy.
Most of the time, neither the customer nor the POS agent asks the other for their identification. And in terms of identity theft and fraud, that can be one of the riskiest interactions.
There are fake alerts; when customers transfer money to your account, you might see the alert, but it could be a fake one. Fraudsters using POS agents to defraud victims is another instance of identity theft.
There have also been instances where the POS agents themselves have conned and stolen from their clients.
