I woke up on Monday to discovered that my GTBank corporate account has been blocked. I couldn’t withdraw nor transfer money from it but was still able to receive funds with it.
Instantly, I tweeted at @gtbank on Twitter, asking for an online form I could use to link my Bank Verification Number (BVN) to my GTBank account but was surprised when I was told that I must visit the nearest Guaranty Trust Bank branch to get it done. No online BVN linker for GTBank GAPS account holders.
Yesterday, I traveled almost 2 hours to get it sorted at a GTbank branch. I was given a BVN form to fill in which I provided the BVN number that was issued for me for my GTbank savings account.
My request was processed and I received an email this morning, informing me that the account restriction has been removed.
So, if you’re running a corporate account at GTBank, visit the nearest branch to link your BVN to your account.
Please remember that you can always retrieve your BVN details by simply dialing *565*0# from the phone number used for your BVN registration. Your BVN gives you a unique identity that can be verified across the Nigerian Banking Industry and protects your account from unauthorized access.
Note : GAPS means GTBank Automated Payment System.
