- A Nigerian woman, Sola Ismail, has been praised by many after she sent back the sum of N38m that was credited into her account
- The woman was expecting a refund sum of R1 500 from a Chinese company that could not fulfil the order she purchased from them
- Before sending back the money, Sola deducted the bank charges the error transfer had incurred
A businesswoman, Sola Ismail, has shown that there are many honest Nigerians in the country who would do the right thing no matter how inconvenient.
In a Facebook post by Elder Olabisi Ekwueme, the woman wanted a refund of the money she had paid to a Chinese company for a product which they did not have.
The refund was to be R1 600 but the company said they would only return R1 500. In error, the company transferred the sum of R1.5 million into her account.
Without giving it a second thought, the woman returned their money after deducting bank charges.
As a response, the company returned her full R1 600. Olabisi went ahead to say that story like Sola’s is proof that there are upright Nigerians.
