It makes you wonder if it would be safer going back to the old days and keeping your cash under the floorboards. It just sits in the bank rotting away and getting so little interest on it. For all I have I do not need to worry to much about it. I am a bit unlucky at times ,If I decided to buy Gold instead of putting it in the bank the gold prices would drop dramatically,If I bought antiques I would probably drop them. If I put it under the floorboards the mice would get it. So I have found the best thing to do is just to give it to the wife and she gets rid of it very quickly.
I am somewhat confused as to how they hacked the accounts. Every time I access my accounts I have to use an independent numeral generator and 2 or 3 specific letters of my passwords which change every log-in (the letters not the passwords).
If a teenager can hack in to the Pentagon etc there seems no really safe way of using this medium for personal finance.So far I have resisted on line banking but as one gets older it becomes more of a neccessity.
GANDALF <|:-)> I hope it is untrue but I read of a case of an "inside job" where the criminals had infiltrated a gang member into the bank's system control staff.
