identity theft & offline fraud in banking industry

In a recent post, I  wrote about those 25 Million British people, whose bank information had been "lost". Jeremy Clarkson, a British TV presenter, wrote in his Sun newspaper column, that such a loss is of no value for somebody who may now own this data. To proof this, he published his own Barclays Bank account information. He now had to admit, that somebody exploited this information and transferred 500 GBP from his account to some welfare organization. So he either was lucky or didn't have more on his account, I suppose.
