A Credit Card for a Cat?
Australia has been the home of many strange and wonderful things, but this story just might be the cat’s pajamas. It seems that an Australian woman, Katherine Campbell, wanted to test her bank’s identity security system, so she applied for a “secondary” credit card for her cat. The Bank of Queensland not only approved the application but issued the credit card in the cat’s name, Messiah. Campbell was agog: “I just couldn’t believe it. People need to be aware of this, and banks need to have better security!” A spokesperson for the bank offered, "The cat’s credit card has been canceled. We apologize as this should not have happened."
