Sun scoop reveals massive bank fraud

Police have launched an inquiry into revelations made by The Sun
today that access to British bank accounts can be bought for £3 from an
Indian call center.
Reporter Oliver Harvey revealed that he has
bought the account details of 1,000 Britons from corrupt call center
workers in Delhi.
According to The Sun, those with bank accounts at
HSBC, Lloyds, TSB, Natwest, Abbey, Nationwide, Woolwich and Royal Bank
of Scotland are all vulnerable.
It is the latest in a string of high-profile
scoops for The Sun. Last week a Sun reporter took a fake bomb into
Sandringham where Prince Harry was training and last month the paper
published pictures of Saddam Hussein in his underpants.
The Sun has handed a dossier of evidence on the alleged bank fraud to the police.
A City of London Police spokeswoman said: “An
investigation is now underway. Therefore it would be inappropriate for
us to provide further details at this stage.”
