Plusnet - poor security and fraud

So after two hours of not being able to make calls or send SMS, I called Plusnet to find out what was going on. Apparently, I had called in, twice in fact to ask that my own account be suspended.


Of course, I've not done this - so someone has managed to get through security twice posing as me.


1) I'm told my phone will be blocked for up to five days while the investigate

2) They cannot change my memorable information, so whoever has my details can keep calling up and potentially access more data on my account


Seems a bit lax plusnet?
