YOUR SAY: Beware the credit card in your letterbox
A WARNING to all residents.
Make sure your letterbox is fitted with a lock.
I arrived home yesterday to find my new credit card in my (then unlocked) letterbox.
I thought I would have to ring up to get the card activated etc, but not so; it was ready to use as is!
What's more, it was set up for Paywave for transactions up to $100. I tried it out this morning when I bought petrol.
No worries, just touch it on the machine and away you go!
No wonder mail gets stolen from letterboxes. If it had been stolen from my letterbox, I would have not known for three-four weeks when my existing card was due for renewal and by then, goodness knows how many transactions of just under $100 each would have been booked to my account.
Which bank? One guess!
