Petrol giant Shell has suspended chip-and-pin payments in 600 UK petrol stations after more than £1m was siphoned out of customers' accounts.
Eight people, including one from Guildford, Surrey, and another from Portsmouth, Hants, have been arrested in connection with the fraud inquiry.
Nice one. Now, hang on, wasn't Chip and PIN suppposed to protect us all from fraud?
Well, possibly it has—I don't know the figures (if, indeed, there have been any since February 14 or whenever it was)—but it still doesn't fill me with confidence for the security of ID Cards.
Hello, John Reid! Are you paying attention to this shit...?
