I recently opened a new standard bank account. I was receiving my salary in my Aunt's FNB bank account and decided to open my oen standard bank account in my name after being refered by a friend. I told the manager there that i intended to transfer all mysavings into this account and it was going to be my new day to day account and where i receive my salary. when the account was opened my money was transfered and immediately they froze my account leaving me desperate. I could not commute to work today because i had no money and i asked my employer to allow me to visit the bank and sort this out. I went there and they said they cannot do anything to help me at the branch, and they put me through to the fraud department. I communicated with them and they promised to call me before end of day today but they havent called me since and the bank is almost about to close now. I now havent been able to go to work for 2 days and my electricity and water bill still hasnt been settled. They will impose a penalty for late payment i think tomorrow if they havent done so already. if i do not go to work tomorrow i do not know what my boss will say. I regret opening this bank account, this was the worst mistake i have ever made. it will likely cost me my life. I have no way of communicating with the people who can unfreeze my account because when i called the fraud department they said that they sent an email somewhere and those people will call me but i have no way of following up or knowing if they will call. If anyone who can help me will see this, may you kindly help me take my life back.
