Not Banking On Their Security

, , , , | Working | March 21, 2017

(I am in town shopping and realise I’ve forgotten my PIN, so I go into the local branch of my bank to withdraw some money.)

Me: *handing my card over* “Could I take out £10, please?”

Banker: “Absolutely, I’ll just have your account details and sort that out for you.”

(After a minute of her putting my details into a computer, she hands me a receipt and asks me to sign.)

Me: “Don’t I need to give you any ID?”

Banker: “Not at all. That’s all sorted for you. Have a nice day.”

(I dread to think about how many people have had money stolen just because they didn’t ask for any personal details or ID!)
