Every day, hundreds of thousands of us pop into coffee shops. While we sip our cappuccinos, we may connect our smartphones to the cafes’ Wi-Fi network, and catch up with friends via services such as Facebook.

As well as socialising, we may use the time and free access to a wireless connection to get on top of our finances. That £75 you owe the plumber can be paid instantly by accessing your bank’s website or app. Transferring money from your savings account to your current account is nothing more than a few taps on your screen.

But what coffee drinkers do not suspect is that lurking among their fellow latte lovers are bank robbers.

'fraid I'm one of the last persons still standing
in town who gets my cash over the counter at
the bank.

The bank ladies laugh at me - but I shall never
surrender!

Not that I have a smartphone, but if I did I wouldn't use an unsecured connection to do banking. Of course there will be people taking advantage of people's cluelessness.

My 45€ Nokia from 2005 is still alive and kicking.

Been run over, stepped on, sat on, dropped on concrete
floors, thrown off my 2nd floor balcony, spilled coffee on
etc etc.

İmage

When it dies, I think my telephoning days will be over.
