The fraudster can get your registered SIM card from your stolen phone or clone your phone number using the SIM cloning tool or cloning Application.

They will dial the USSD code to show the bank you are using. Then, dial your bank USSD code to know your account balance.

The next thing is to reset your Transfer pin code so that they can easily transfer money out from your account. To reset the pin, the bank will ask for the Account Number and date of birth (DOB). Fortunately for them, some people save their account numbers and BVN on their phone contacts. If they can't find your BVN on your contact.
