If You Do Transactions On POS Machine, Beware Of Scams: Here's What You Need To Know

The field of mobile app creation is vast and ever-changing, with new frameworks and innovations appearing almost daily. Even though tablets and phones aren't nearly as commonplace as smartphones, you're likely to think of them when you think of a mobile device.


In Nigeria, there isn't a street where you won't come across a POS Agent from whom you can withdraw money rather than going to the bank. In Nigeria, the point-of-sale industry has reduced stress while increasing fraud.

We now have an Android POS in town with all of the features of an Android phone, including memory for storing data, wireless connectivity for browsing the internet, and a slot for inserting your ATM card for transactions.


All people who withdraw from POS Agent and use Android POS should be aware of the following facts. 

Please do check the company logo that supplied the POS machine before inserting your ATM card; if the name is not written on the POS machine's exterior, do not use your ATM card on it.

If you don't have trust in the Agent, don't use your ATM card on his/her POS machine because the Android POS machine has storage for your debit or credit card information. 

Notice that even if the POS debits your account, Android POS will not provide you with a transaction receipt or any other proof of the transactions.
