Be on guard, says OAP.

A PENSIONER is warning cash point users to be on their guard after her card was stolen as she tried to withdraw money.

Dot Pearce, 71, a retired book keeper, of Fairwater, Cardiff, was at Lloyds TSB's cash point on Kingsway, in Cardiff city centre yesterday, when she was briefly distracted by a young man. As she turned to retrieve her card, she discovered it was missing.

She said: "I put my numbers in the machine and this boy said I had dropped pounds 10. I told him it wasn't mine. Then I noticed my card was gone. He was gone in a flash."

Staff managed to cancel her card before thieves had the chance to empty her account.
