Cat Gets Credit Card

3:30 PM -- Reuters reports on a credit card scam that would surely appall our sister site, Dark Reading:

  • An Australian bank has apologized for issuing a credit card to a cat after its owner decided to test the bank's identity security system.

Cats being approved for charge cards... Looks like PETA is finally getting what it wants.

  • "I just couldn't believe it. People need to be aware of this and banks need to have better security," Campbell told local media on Thursday.

People need to be more aware of what exactly? Pets committing fraud?

  • The Bank of Queensland issued a credit card to Messiah the cat when his owner Katherine Campbell applied for a secondary card on her account under its name.

So. The Messiah saves at the Bank of Queensland.
