Messiah Campbell had good enough credit that he got issued a credit card with a AU$ 4,200 limit. Problem was, he's a cat!
His Melbourne owner Katherine Campbell wanted to test the limits of her bank's identity screening process and applied for the Visa credit card on Messiah's behalf.
She was amazed when it was approved.
"I just couldn't believe it," she said yesterday. "People need to be aware of this and banks need to have better security."
