Attack of the clones
I opened a new current account a couple of weeks ago, in order to get a higher rate of interest on my balance. It seems that my usurious greed has received its karmic backlash already.
My card has been cloned: my card that I’ve never made a payment with. I’ve put it in a machine exactly once, on the day I received the generated PIN, in order to change the PIN to one that’s only in my head and not written down anywhere. Maybe that machine was compromised, but it was a busy indoor machine that I used in the middle of the day, and it looked kosher.
Well, the card’s cancelled now, and the £85 of questionable transactions (all to telecoms providers) are in the hands of the fraud department.
It’s very suspicious.
