HERITAGE Bank Plc has urged its depositors to disregard reports that it is in distress.
A statement by the bank yesterday lamented that “unrelenting persons keen on dragging the name of the bank in the mud have once again began spreading absolutely false reports about the bank in the social media.”
One of such reports Heritage bank said was published on a social media platform on Friday, which falsely and maliciously claimed that “anxious customers jammed the phone lines and websites of Heritage Bank PLC and crowded most of its branch offices to pull out their savings because of concerns about fresh financial problems of the bank.”
This report, the bank, said: “is not just false, it was clearly sponsored with the intent to sully and de-market Heritage Bank.”
The bank assured its depositors that they have no cause whatsoever to be anxious about his or her deposit.
Heritage Bank claims it “is doing exceedingly well and continues to discharge its responsibilities with precision and utmost professionalism to depositors, investors and all other critical shareholders.”
