Naira 4 Dollar Scheme

"CBN Naira 4 dollar scheme" has ended, and the Central Bank of Nigeria no longer gives extra amounts on transactions made to USD accounts. 

Should your recipient have any questions regarding this scheme, they can directly contact their bank for more information.


If you sent money to the wrong person or to the wrong number, what can you do?

If you made a mistake with the recipient’s phone number or bank account number, unfortunately, there is nothing we can do as the funds cannot be reversed. 

Please always double-check every transaction detail before you send money. We make it easy for you to edit any transfer details before the final payment confirmation step.
