Here’s a “brief” post on a funny subject featured on the BBC website.
A Lloyds TSB customer who had his telephone banking password set to “Lloyds TSB is pants” rang up to find they had changed it to “no it isn’t”. He’d changed it when he fell out with the bank over an insurance policy, and later found they would not change it for him again – after he requested it to be reset as “Barclays is better”.
The member of staff who changed the password no longer works for Lloyds, and let’s hope he has now changed the password to something now more secret, as he’s just had his name and some banking details published on Money Watch and the BBC, which can’t be great for his security.
