Cat gets Credit Card

In what is a scary but amusing story ...

An Australian bank has given a credit card to a cat, with no security and identity checks.

Katherine Campbell, of Melbourne, wanted to test what steps a bank would take to check identity. She applied to the Bank of Queensland Limited (ASX:BOQ) for a Visa credit card for her cat, Messiah Campbell.

Quite promptly, the bank sent a credit card with a $A4,200 limit to Messiah. Campbell filled out all the forms, telling the truth about Messiah's age and address.

A spokesperson for the bank has apologised for the error.

If its that easy for a cat to get into debt its no wonder Australia has such a high debt level.
Good Luck.
