Identity Taunt Backfires for Clarkson

Clarkson Stung After Bank PrankAlong with everyone else in the new medjia biz, I’m predicting that privacy and identity are going to be hot potatoes this year. So, it was with a wry grin that I was pointed in the direction of this story from the bombastic Mr Clarkson.

Suffice to say, posting your bank account number and sort code in a national newspaper and taunting identity thieves is probably not the wisest move. Still fair play for admitting the blooper.
