Friday Top Tip thread
show user profile  STRAT
For those of you in the UK that use the Nectar card -

In my local Tesco self serve till this morning i purchased a small amount of shopping which took up 2 bags. I accidently typed in i had 20 bags for my Nectar card points, and it accepted it, ergo upping my points tally and cash total.

Thinking forward i went into the shop 10 mins later, purchased a packet of chewing gum at the self serve again, and said i had 5000 bags of my own. and it went through. awesomeness! 5000 bags for a single packet of sweets, lol.

Either the machine or the system is at fault, but hey, 5000 points equates to around £50 or something. Food paid for for a couple of weeks, and all i do if i'm approached is complain of a faulty machine or a typo. Easy, that loop-hole is totally their problem :)

there you are, instant money saving and amassing tips for a nice warm sunny friday.

Anyone else for any else?

Dishonestly causing someone to suffer a financial loss is fraud, which is a criminal offence.
Don't do this. The fact the system may have a hole in it is unlikely to be a valid defence.

To be an offence, you have to do something dishonestly and know you are doing that thing dishonestly. I think a jury would convict as you went back a second time and made a similar "error".

You could say the same about shoplifting - hey it's not my fault the security don't check I haven't put something in my bag without paying for it.

Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer, but I have looked into this stuff a fair bit.

I've just spoken to the Nectar people and they are very keen on contacting you. I gave them your home address and a link to this thread, I hope that's ok?

Just kiddin'

You are a modern day Robin Hood. Except that you aren't giving to the poor, don't wear tights, and probably have pretty bad archery skills and don't ride horses quite as much. Hmmm.

I think your typo defense would work FINE for maybe 1 or 2 offenses.....but unfortunatley if you make a habit of it you've got no way out if caught.

So I say "good job! Cool! Score!!!!!!".....but, you're done. Dont do it again. Risk is to high.

you propably wished you typed in 1.000.000 bags instead of 5000.

I'd say try a million, then contact the people at nectar if it works, tell them you found a security breach and if you're lucky you'll get a reward.
