My mum had her card cloned at the petrol station at the Bell.

Whats the world coming to ?

These people have nice jobs with flexible working hours where they get their own office and are their own boss, yet they still turn to crime.

Beware....

similar thing happened to my mum about half a year ago. they spent thousands and the bank treated my mum as a suspect even though it was her card and the money was being spent in manchester. eventually got it sorted after months of trouble.

hard to believe it happens to so many people

It just sums our country up at the moment, i mean after watching whistle blower last night about Barclays and the brazen stealing that goes on in there, its hardly surprising scum bags are fleecing us for whatever they can get their hands on.

Im old school and still pay for as much as i can with cash, and i use a trusted local cash machine which hardly anyone else uses.

I'm not condoning any sort of crime here for a second but how can you believe working as a cashier in an all night garage is a sweet job to have?

I had a similar thing happen to me. The bank (Lloyds) actually spotted it quicker than I did. The card was used to buy petrol in Ealing whilst I was landing a plane in Northampton. So I had managed to pay for petrol in West London and then pay my landing fee in Northampton within a few minutes of eachother!

This happened on a Saturday whilst the banks were closed and Lloyds contacted me on the Monday.

At the cash point or the payment desk?

At the desk. Her credit card was being used in Czech Republic, luckily Barclays were on the spot and stopped it.

Kidding right ? You are your own boss, can read all the magazines for free. Must be great.

Unfortunately it is a poor paid job where the person is inevitably on their own handling credit cards so is open to abuse. The pay on the pump garages are the only way to be sure.

Cheers for the warning. I filled up there and subsequently used my card there about 3 days ago. Will be watching my bank balance closely and contacting Barclays sooninsh.

Note. What is it with me and Petrol. First Tesco FUBAR my car with dodgy fuel, and now there is a possibility that card could be cloned. FFS!

Petrols weird, 90% of petrol stations are closed or closing and the ones that arent seem to be staffed by criminals.

Tescos etc are probably the safest bet but seem to be putting mud and baked beans in their petrol.

One way of cutting emissions I guess.
