Ibraheem Ishola, a customer of Consummate Traders, has informed FIJ of the proprietary trading company’s approval of his April 15 transaction.
This follows FIJ’s report on the company’s failure to approve Ishola’s N33,000 payment for a forex challenge.
“I just confirmed it. Consummate [sic] has approved my April 15 deposit. Thank you FIJ. I’m grateful,” Ishola said in a message on May 16.

Consummate Traders had told Ishola that it had not seen the N33,000 payment in its bank account. Ishola provided his receipt from the payment but Consummate Traders insisted that the money was nowhere to be found.
When FIJ contacted the company on May 5, a representative told this reporter that they received no such amount on April 15. A receipt of the successful transaction did not change Consummate Traders’ position.

FIJ reached out to the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS) on May 5, and it said that the April 15 transfer was successful. Consummate Traders then asked for the same receipt Ishola had already presented to it twice.
A few days after FIJ’s publication, the transaction was approved.
