CARD sharks

I wrote about a couple whose PIN number was 'shoulder-surfed' while shopping at Tesco's. Gerry Buckley told me how his wife Katherine had used a credit card to pay for shopping. Little did she know that she was being watched as she used the key pad at the check out. Another member of the gang then distracted her as she loaded shopping into her car while her purse was lifted and her cards taken out. The couple lost €11,000 and their bank are claiming it's their own fault. Security camera footage showed one of the gang watched from about 14 feet away as she keyed in her number. Today Liveline picked up on the Sunday World story and interviewed Katherine. Listen here.
