I have been told of a customer who recently received a Digital Card Reader in the post from The Royal Bank of Scotland with an attached letter. She left it to one side as being elderly she wasn’t interested in it. 2 days later she had a phone call from the bank asking if she had received it, she said she had but was taking it back to the bank as she didn’t want it. The “very nice man” told her she didn’t have to do that as he could cancel it for her and told her to put her card and number in to do this.
The next day she went to the bank for a statement and yes, you can guess what – every penny had been taken out of her account including savings for her granddaughters! She was devastated and the worst of it is SHE felt foolish and ashamed !!!
Luckily she got her money back but apparently this is a new Digital System coming out so please be aware of this as it looks very genuine.
