Re: 123-Reg customer records are just broken

It's a good job my credit card had expired

Don't count on that sorting everything. A few years ago someone skimmed my debit card and set up a small Continuous Card Authorisation (Netflix, IIRC). My bank spotted a large unusual payment (online shop) and alerted me, so we cancelled the card, but the CCA carried forward to the new card and I didn't notice until some weeks later when checking a bank statement.

I didn't have any other CCAs on the card, but apparently this is normal practice.
