Cat Got Issued a Credit Card.

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."


Apparently a lot of people have been having fun with this one today. You'd be surprised how many people came through our system today with names like "fluffy" and "felix." Those jokers.

This takes those pet perks cards to a whole new level!

Isn't that fraud?

What kind of defence would that make?

"Gee, officer, I wasn't really speeding/ shoplifting / buying drugs or sex. I was just testing your processes."
