And your credit card details are…

Anyone considering joining csma (formerly the Civil Service Motoring Association) might like to know that a sales person of theirs, who was trying to sell their car insurance, was quite happy to read out new members’ address and credit card details in a mobile phone call to his office, while sat at his stand in a staff canteen. I’ve no idea who Neil Brown is, but I do now know (okay, I’ve already forgotten, but I and several others heard it very clearly) exactly where he lives, when he was born, his partner’s name and date of birth and, if I had a pen and paper, would also know his car registration number, his maestro card number and expiry date.
