Bank issues credit card to cat

An Australian bank has apologised for issuing a credit card to a cat after its owner decided to test the bank's identity security system.
The Bank of Queensland issued a credit card to Messiah the cat when his owner Katherine Campbell applied for a secondary card on her account under its name.
"I just couldn't believe it. People need to be aware of this and banks need to have better security," Campbell told local media on Thursday.
The bank said the cat's card had been cancelled. "We apologise as this should not have happened," it said in a statement.
"I can hear it now, "I didn't make that purchase, my cat bought it!"

Strange that the security system works in such a way. I think giving a credit card is a serious thing and everything should be checked better.
