    With PIN you are fecked basically - the main motivation for introducing it wasn't combat fraud, but to shift liability to the end user (you).

    According to the actual broadcast, the crims managed a 'divert' the phone back from the bank. A point they skipped over as if it were a 'normal' event. Having said that the drone on the phone ignored the warning from the speech recognition software that the caller was fake.

    Banks starting to roll-out two-factor authentication in the form of one-time passcode texted to your mobile when doing online shopping.

    Want to shop online? Best have a mobile signal - BBC News

    One bank that has started sending passwords to mobiles is First Direct. It advised anyone having difficulties to get in touch with them.

    "We do have alternative processes for customers who cannot use this method, and they may be required to call us to authenticate," a spokesperson said.
    "I would call but if I had a mobile signal I'd have received the passcode in the first place"

    How many people live somewhere with internet (to do the online shopping) but no mobile signal?

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I've used the Authy app for two-factor authentication on some sites so not sure why such an approach can't be used for banking as it works offline afaik, similar to those banking devices pictured up thread.

    Texting and phone calls is so last decade. Get with the times banking IT people.

    Happen to use them too. Pain in the bum when you've lost the card reader though.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    That's not true. If you paid someone before you don't have to use it (up to a certain amount I hope) so far I could transfer several 100s of pounds using my mobile app without using the security code thingy

    They call people up and ask then to read out the numbers from the reader.

    No matter how much you try to engineer a secure system the people using it have a reasonable chance of being morons.

    If only this country had a security service that can identify creeps who abuse phone lines and then send a physical pursvuasion unit to deal with them...
