GTBank Plc is one of the 5 best banks in Nigeria at this moment. It not strange to that the bank is now a target for online scam in the form of "GTBank Plc Account Suspension Notice and Compulsory Verification Scam". I am combining two GTBank Plc online email scam together in this post. Two scam formats were sent to me on two different days. One on Account Suspension Notice and the second on Compulsory Verification.

GTBank Plc will never send you emails of this nature which automatically make these ones scams. Even when customers where ask to update their accounts in the past, you either pick up a form at any of their branches or download the form from the bank's website and submit a hard copy.
Just like Liberty Reserve scam phishing site, where if you enter you details your money will disappear into the thin air. If you make the mistake of giving out your account details, then your money is in danger. Just be careful, don't give your account details to anyone to avoid this GTBank scam, they won't even ask for it at their office.
