I went for that zero priced deal at CPW a couple of days ago - the one a few people said their bank called them about after.
I went shopping today and used cash until I got to Lidl where I intended to get money back from them at the till. So enough shopping to fill two bags - and gave them my card - and it was declined. I knew there was a couple of hundred in it at least - and so asked them to keep the messages while i went to the cash machine to get some money out.
Got to the wall machine and got a message something like "you are not permitted to access this information".
So back to the car to realise my mobile was at home but my niece had her PAYG.
After a three quid phone call, it transpires CPW for a "free" transaction did enough weird things with my account to get it suspended.
Back to Lidl - where they had returned the frozen stuff to the freezers - and paid for the messages with my newly unblocked card.
Then I remembered two years ago after getting another phone from CPW and buying currency - they two were events that triggered the bank to call again too.
So if you do deal with CPW - call your bank after to see if your card sitill works - as it saves wasting an hour ****ing about later.
Does anyone know where the next protest is where you can smash bank windows?
