Whoa ... I'm apparently in Barbados !

... certainly at 1405 hrs local time (1905 hrs over here).

Got a strange "automated phone call" apparently from the Royal Bank of Scotland "Fraud Squad" this evening at about 1915hrs - "sounds a bit scammy" thought I, so when I got home I did some checking (OK Googling !) before ringing a different number.  A few questions later they were going through my recent transactions (Mossley cashpoint, Asda, Mossley cashpoint, Tesco etc) .... and then ... "£159 in Barbados today ???" I don't think so !!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like I've been cloned .... and I wonder how/where from ... card now cancelled anyway ... typically tropical bastards !
