Good morning. Please somebody said he made a transfer to my account and I ddnt see any alert since Sunday, I tried to dialled *833# to check my balance, it just saying Invalid. Please I want to check my account balance what is d code for it.please lead me tru because am confused

Thank you very much for stopping by Adeola Tosin.

Polaris bank e-channel platforms are having technical challenges at the moment.

If truly you were sent money as your sender claimed, the transaction probably hits the rock and was not successful.
He should kindly visit any Polaris bank branch and lay his complaints.

He will fill a form with transaction details, then wait for possible reconciliation.

However, you should be able to check your account balance using *833*6# but the service is very bad at this time.

Kindly visit any branch to request your account balance that’s if their system is up at this time.

Thank you.
