By phone?Will my bank not need the full card details attached to my bank?True they could pretend to be me and activate online banking...

If someone has your card all they need to do is go into your bank and ask to close your account, sign a piece of paper and they'll have all your money.The way the Lloyds staff didn't even ask me for ID was ridiculous

The only way to insulate yourself from this, is putting your money into a savings account that needs a SEPERATE password to set up a new transfer. I don't know if all banks do this but I know with Halifax & Natwest you need to enter additional security details to create a new transfer. This isn't 100% foolproof but just another layer that frustrates the fraudsters when trying.As for getting your money back, the banks are starting to take a tough line on victims. If they believe you were negligent with your password they aint trying to give you your money back.

Nah u cant just close the account, depends how much doe u got in there, above a couple bags need ID, most cases below that is jus a case of signature verification.

yep, with halifax, when you wanna send money now, they ask you for additional security. But as you said, as the people now know your security details, transfers will/have been in progress...
