Just been to Liverpool airport short stay car park.On third floor there was no option to pay by cash only by card.I put in my card and then noticed there wasn't a keypad to in put my pin. The machine took payment without the pin how can this be possible?

I recently had 4 entries on my Credit Credit card. 2 London Congestion Charges and 2 airline tickets when I was staying at a hotel in Northumberland. How that was achieved I have no idea when my card has not been out of my personal possession since it was issued.

Used it in a petrol station lately?

They're notorious for skimming cards whilst you're not looking...

Alan14. No I always use cash for petrol. I have used it in supermarkets and for purchases online, but the card has never been out of my hands or my wallet. I have heard that criminals have installed "doctored" card readers in some shops etc. to skim the cards for card numbers.
