Hadn't heard of this one. Sounds horrific.

Thanks for the heads up @Bambino ...it is indeed worrying.

I clicked on the link halfway through that article and found something else

O2 looks particularly poor when criticised for 'mobile phone shops enabling sim swap scams'

This was on Watchdog last week. All very worrying and sometimes you just wonder where technology is taking us given the ingenuity of these fraudsters who are continually coming up with new ways of helping themselves to our money. Dispicable scum!

Thank you very much @Bambino for the information.
There was an earlier post that I suspected was insider helped.
Difficult problem to quickly overcome.
This can happen in other institutions too.
A friend had money stolen from a building society account many years ago didn't even have a mobile!! Staff member ( local )arrested eventually.
Suppose it is age old problem.
Where there's money someone will be after it.
