most online banks ask for different characters from your account password ie the first third sixth and eigth characters so you dont give away the whole password.
but how many of you use the same password for banking facebook hotmail etc so you have prob given your password out loads.
they had to cancel bank cards credit cards and change all passwords what a knightmare
moral of story spy check virus check and use different passwords.
also be aware of using computers at internet cafe etc as they may have such programs running without your knowledge.
