Any Business owners or people that use Tesco bank! 

Warning here as 20,000 accounts registered with Tesco bank are gobsmacked by the ongoing suspicious transactions. With mostly online transactions, thousands of customers have had huge sums of money taken from their bank. 

There are no current speculations with what has caused this; only the obvious which is hackers getting hold of card details and spending ridiculous amounts online however the real problem seems to come about by the lack of security within the Tesco site. As a large business company they should really be head on about these type of things and be aware of what is going on online with regarding customer's personal information. 

The BBC announced 

Earlier, the bank confirmed some accounts "have been subject to online criminal activity, in some cases resulting in money being withdrawn fraudulently". 

Let this be an eye opener to business owners. When handling customer information it is so important it is kept safe under lock and key should I say. 

I hope everyone that uses Tesco bank is all OK. Worth checking out though.

Yes it is for real, there have been thousands of Tesco bank users who's accounts were hacked and sums of money had been taken from their accounts. As far as I know all accounts have been refunded by Tesco however if you do use Tesco bank it is worth checking to see if you were one of the many who did have money taken from your account.
