Spookily related, I got some snail mail from my bank today about the "free" services I get with my account. One of them is Identity Theft Protection. According to them (I'm not going to tell you who I bank with now as I am even more paranoid), 100,000 people are affected by ID Theft in the UK each year. The bank will provide me with £10k of cover any expenses needed to defend and restore my credit status.
Joking aside, it's a pretty cool service to offer and one that shows the changing times. Now if only I could communicate with my bank manager via email...that would be nice.
Perhaps more usefully for me they also provide "Gadget Cover" - nice :)
This Guardian article about BT's offer of a 2gb vault of digital storage for £5 per month got me thinking.
