“Don’t ever “borrow” anyone your account number to receive money, your account should be for your own usage..someone is in custody for borrowing a “friend” his account, he never knew the money they are transferring through him is fraudulent. Ignorance isn’t an excuse before the law.
“It’s so risky to just release your account number for transactions you cant guarantee. Local man ‘may’ be spending Christmas in detention,more so that the friend is on the run. Investigators said only his “friend” can clarify his innocence unfortunately friend is nowhere in sight.”
