  1. My mum just lost her phone.
    I tried deactivating her account with first bank using the code but the reply I got after that was “error fetching ATM card numbers: No_card_found”
    Pls help it’s urgent!!!

    • So sorry about that… If you can’t contact your bank ASAP, another thing you could do is to temporarily block your line (linked with her bank) by calling your network support number.

      FOR MTN:
      From an MTN line: 180
      From other networks: 08031000180
      From outside the country: +2348031000180

      From an Airtel line: 111
      From other networks: +2348021500111

      FOR GLO:
      From an Glo line: 121
      From other networks: +2348050020121

      FOR 9MOBILE:
      From an 9mobile line: 200
      From other networks: 08090000200
      From outside the country: +2348090000200

  2. Great article really impressed me. I think you should also write an article about disposable nitrile exam gloves This will be beneficial for others I guess thank you.

  3. If I deactivate my mobile banking services and letter found my phone back will it affect my credit and debit message or alerts, please tell me

  4. I just woke up this morning and saw an SMS that my bank account has been debited N100 and N488 via my MTN line of which I have not actually do it and my MTN line is not recharge at all. But, my bank account is debited twice. How do I deactivate recharging my MTN line via bank account?

    • That’s an article on how to deactivate USSD code if you use the USSD method to recharge. On the other hand, if you use their mobile app instead, then you can’t deactivate the airtime recharge feature, you can only stop using the app entirely by uninstalling it.
