Met police commissioner: Fraud victims should not be refunded by banks


Not very good at his job then...

My email account was compromised a while back during one of the many bulk hacks/releases of logins that've happened. OK, I spotted it within an hour and updated all the security credentials but if I hadn't? Would I be to blame for that? It wasn't my security that was lax. Email accounts are a big risk, as so many other services will reset their passwords by a simple email.

If they'd used that to reset some of my other accounts, with real money involved in them, would that be my fault?
