Messiah The Cat Gets $4200 Credit Card

Meow! Meow! That’s the sound of Messiah, a cat, charging expensive lingerie on his new credit card.

Interested in testing out her bank’s security, Melbourne, Australia resident Katherine Campbel signed up her cat “Messiah” as a secondary credit card holder.

Initially the Bank of Queensland asked for Messiah’s ID, but sent him a credit card days later without receiving so much as a paw print.

“It’s a bit scary and it’s a big problem,” said Ms. Campbell of bluffing the bank’s security system. “It was very easy to do and I’m not even a professional crook.” — BEN POPKEN
