Only for them to say I didn’t give them money at all and after Series of argument, to avoid embarrassment, I paid the money again.
Then Last year December, I made a transfer of #700 to them, again, they said they didn’t get credit alert.
After that, I made another transfer of #2,500 and according to them, they saw that one.
In short, I had to repay the #700, with additional charges. This is becoming unbearable and it’s painful”.
