Secure banking is not with fingerprinting
In Melbourne newspapers covered a crackdown on Online Banking fraud with announcements of Fingerprinting technology.

Sampo my bank in Finland sends me a plastic credit card with lots of number pairs. When I shift money it asks for a number which I match up with the other pair on the card and submit it. It’s different every time. Once I’ve exhausted all the options, Sampo sends me another plastic card with new numbers. Unless someone has my account details, password and the plastic card then you can’t shift my money around.
Sampo is smart.
ANZ, get a CLUE!
I imagine Finger Printing technology not only to be costly and stupid, but I heard from a Japanese security professional that elderly people do not have enough moisture in their fingers to use such devices.
