Al-Rajhi Bank in Saudi Arabia accidentally transferred money to its clients’ accounts on Sunday, the daily Sabq reported.
According to the report, some Saudis confirmed via Twitter that the bank accidentally transferred money to them while others said they tried to give the money back but the bank refused.
They also posted photos showing that their accounts have millions of riyals after the money was transferred to them.
After the hashtag “Al-Rajhi Bank accidentally transfers money” became trending on Twitter, the bank had to respond and said via its Twitter account that these reports were false.
Clients, however, insisted that the bank transferred money to them and then took it back. One client even said that the bank’s customer services branch contacted him after he said he wants to return the money.
Saudis were thus convinced that the allegations are true. One Twitter user slammed the bank and said: “You officially deny the report then you privately tell clients to return them? It’s a stupid lie. Legally speaking, you cannot take the money since you denied you wired it in the first place.”
