I may have caught them out by using their 'click and collect' service come to think about it, paying in the local Sainsburys store since they opened up a branch in there recently.
You still have to enter all your details, but dont need to enter your credit card, although one of my cards does have the same spelling mistake on it, made by the bank, not me, but is still usable.
With the click and collect, l have even shortened my first name to just two letters, ticked the box for no junk mail, and yo and behold, the third party junk mail has poured into my box in the following weeks addressed likewise!
A few years ago, when paying by cheque was commonplace, l accidently wrote a cheque in a hurry out of my husbands personal cheque book, to which l had no official access, and signed it with my own usual signiture. Same surname, but totally different writing to his.
Low and behold, when his statement arrived, the cheque for a couple of hundred pounds to pay for a gas bill had been processed and cashed, and the money that should have been taken remained in my account.
We both banked with the same bank, but it was not a joint account, so in theory, l could have signed my husbands cheque ' Micky Mouse' and it would have still been paid out. There were a few red faces when l went down to tackle them about that one infront of a line of waiting customers at their counter l can tell you!
Ok, my mistake in writing it in the wrong book, but pure proof that the security at this high street bank as regards paying out cheques was severely lacking.
The Argos trick has worked in other places too, try doing it if you send for a brochure or free samples of something where there is no need to enter your card payment details, one large kitchen company last Autumn who we requested a catalogue from, spammed our post with loads of other stuff relating to house DIY and renovations all addressed to Mr.W.J, no surname, but the same initials l had used to request a catalogue on all of them that arrived, despite ticking the 'No Junkmail from third parties' box online.
