My account getting emptied - if not when
I'm in the Armed Forces and have come to the conclusion that it is a matter of when my account gets emptied - not if.
Why? Because I have to tell various members of the Armed Forces:-
a. all of my bank details
b. all of my personal details (Mothers's maiden name, wife's maiden name, addresses for the last 7 years, Parents address, wife's addresses, children's names, and birthdays for all of the above, passport number, National Insurance Number, Place of Birth.
About the only thing they do not know about me is my first Pet's name.
Ripe for a bit of identity theft? I should Coco
And in case we all think that our wonderful armed forces are above a bit of self interest, I one knew a Officer in the Territorial Army who used the names and address of his troops to open Bank accounts. He was a Bank Manager who wanted to meet his targets for new customers.
I have set up a seperate bank account which only has my Armed forces Pay going into it - and it immediatly gets moved to another account that they do not know about. It is my only defence.
