Woman makes understandable mistake due to ambiguously-worded instructions

I remember putting "Current Plus" or similar in the name field the first time I filled in a standing order mandate form, on the basis that the company I was dealing with already knew who I was, and wanted details of my bank account.  Same principle.

more newsworthy would be "John Lewis scraps Christmas ad and gives money to Shelter ,Age UK and  Sally Army."

ADMIN!!!!!!

Surely belongs in the "News from The Provinces" thread  >:(

(where it will be fully appreciated :) )

I love the fact they were "stunned" by the discovery.  That used to require expensive Phaser technology.

Probably an example of official stats confirming the obvious. At least, if anything is done about it.

I'd be interested in the amount of fraud directly attributable to contactless payments.   The banks seem reluctant to share this information.

Just as they are reluctant to share the amount of fraud attributable to chip and pin. The main reason they pay up so easily when your card gets cloned is because they don't want taking to court and be forced to share this information. The charitable view is that they don't want confidence in the products knocking, the less charitable view is they don't want saddling with the costs associated with a) strengthening the systems, b) providing alternative systems and support for people who refuse to use chip and pin.

My Twitter feed informs me that the Daily Mail has seen fit to report that cops on duty for the Boat Race ate hot dogs for lunch before the event.

Which brings to mind the photograph of a Gendarme with his officially sanctioned wine on a lunch break whilst armed and on riot duty.
