Recently I was a victim of "skinning" - that is, the theft of my oh-so-secure cash card details. They seem to have attached a "device" to the Sainsbury's Bank cash machine located at Sainsbury's, Clapham High Street, London SW4. Someone presumably watched me type my numbers in and then cloned my card and ripped my account off for about ?850.
I'm amazed. I mean, loads of people use those machines, so they must have harvested loads of cards. Also, there's a permanent 'security' guard lurking around, as well as other incidental staff. All that, and someone still managed to "fix" the cash machine with a new card reader. Incredible.
smile have sorted it all out, so I'm due a refund today.
