Re: So how do you put money in the bank.

I have an HSBC Secure Key thingummy for one of my accounts and would agree it is a crappy little thing!

Worse still, unlike the Barclays system you are only allowed one Secure Key, and you are not allowed to generate keys on a smartphone (just one mind you) unless you stop using the Secure Key.

HSBC have also started a voice recognition system where you have to say "my voice is my password". I wonder how well that will work when you have a cold, or the morning after the night before for that matter?

A bunch of merchant bankers to use the rhyming slang.

Re: So how do you put money in the bank.

Back to the habits of Americans.

On several occasions in the US (mainly in the South West eg AZ, NM) I have been asked what language we speak at home in England.

On the flip side to this, whilst in Baja, Mexico, we met some Americans from Alaska who asked where in the UK we were from. On replying ‘Dorset’ they said that we must know Lyme Regis and Durdle Door - so there are some well travelled, knowledgeable ones out there, despite Trump.

You should have said 'Anglo Saxon'!

On the BBC news this evening, it showed an item where an internet blackmailer who had made lots of money (millions?), making a transaction at a casino with lots off cash being counted out to him.

I wonder if he was 'laundering' the money he'd made as described above?
