Faith in honesty is restored

REGARDING recent articles about credit card cloning, I went to Exeter to do some Christmas shopping. I used my bank debit card twice during my visit.

REGARDING recent articles about credit card cloning, I went to Exeter to do some Christmas shopping.

I used my bank debit card twice during my visit. I arrived home to receive a phone call from my bank to say that my card had been handed in at the Exeter branch.

I had to check that I had not got it as at that time I did not know I had lost it.

In the light of rogue messages from banks, e-mail scams and cloning of credit cards etc, isn't it great to be able to report that, within an hour of me mislaying my card, someone had picked it up, not tried to use it or pass it onto someone who could, but had taken it into the nearest branch?

Whoever that was, thanks, you have restored my faith in the human race, but I will still be on my guard for those who are not so honest.
