A Nigerian man has recounted all that happened when he returned $3k, which was mistakenly transferred to his account by Bank of America.
According to the Nigerian man who walked into the bank with a cheque for the money, the manager of the bank couldn't stop thanking him and the owner of the money also had a teary moment.

A lady at Bank of America teller mistakenly transfers $3,000 to my account. To cut the long story short, I walk into the bank with a cheque today and the manager couldn't stop thanking me like she didn't believe I was coming. And the lady that made the error was almost in tears
Few months ago, it was also reported that a Qatar based Nigerian man had shown the world that not all Nigerians are bad.
Micheal Asemota, who is the Vice President of the Nigerians in Diaspora organization in Qatar, was erroneously paid the sum of QR1.5m which is equivalent of $411,128, after depositing the sum of QR150,000 in his account.
According to Qatar tribune, Asemota said when he got back home, he received an alert showing that a QR1,502,000 had been credited into his account by mistake instead of QR150,200. Asemota went back to the bank and returned the money.
"After opening the account with the bank, I checked my balance to make withdrawals for a supply job and found the huge sum. I was amazed and decided to contact the bank.
I went to see the manager to report the error of QR1,502,000 deposited into my account. After checking for confirmation, the manager gave me a warm handshake in appreciation."
Asked why he alerted the bank about the error, Asemota said:
"I knew the money did not belong to me and shouldn't be in my account in the first place, so there were no motives and temptations to keep it."
