Dear @myaccessbank pls return the postal duty stamp charges you've debited from my account 3 times today!
To think the debits are backdated to Feb and March its annoying.
So what will happen when you debit me for other months. Btw I'm boycotting you guys! @cenbank #Accessbank

At the time this report was filed, there was no official response from Access bank.
In other news, on Thursday, April 30, 2020, it was disclosed that as a result of the COVID-19 distress, Access Bank planned to lay off 75% of its Staff.
However Nigerians took to social media to slam the Nigerian commercial bank for its intentions, which it later changed.
