In Nigeria, due to network issues or other reasons, a bank account holder may not be notified of incoming & outgoing transactions in his account, and another way to stay abreast of that is surely needed.
United Bank for Africa, known as UBA has a shortcode, *919# that was created for many purposes that include the opening of accounts, transfer of funds, buying of airtime, payment of bills & checking of the account number & balance.
Using a shortcode doesn’t require you to be on the internet, as it is offline & it is done by following the steps below.
- Dial *919# with the number which was used to open the account
- Select 7 – Check Balance
- Input your pin & the balance will be displayed on the screen.
As easy as that, it will surely avoid unnecessary visits to the banking hall to lodge complaints, shout & probably fight.
