Slightly off post, I was called up a couple of years age from someone purporting to be from my banks security division saying my card had been cloned
and someone was using it to buy stuff off E Bay. They told me my name, address, date of birth and the long numbers on my card. Then they made a
mistake in asking my security code numbers to prove it was me. Then I said" but you phoned me so you already know who I am" and I told them I would go
physically to my bank. They were quite polite in saying well do that then.
When I went to my bank they told me their security people do not carry out security questions over the phone, they might phone you to attend your
bank. They said it was someone trying to clone my card. As I don't use my card (my wife does all the banking) I got them to destroy the card and not
to send me any more.
