1) BVN issues

2) Suspicious transactions

3) Someone reported your account for been used to scam other

4) Involves transactions labelled as fraudulent

5) You have gone beyond the bank total allowed balance for your type of account. Some account allow just N50,000 total balance at a go, why under could be up to N5,000,000 without issues

6) You received amount greater than you account type receiving limits. Some account can not receive more than N50,000 at a transaction and anything above that will trigger a check that will temporarily restrict your account till you are able to prove the validity of the fund source.

7) Your account is dormant - not receive nor send out within the last 6months
