I was pretty amazed at the hard sell Barclays gave me on their insurance products when I called to activate my new credit card.

Both card loss insurance, and identity theft insurance. Total cost would have been about £160 pa, which seems a lot of money for that sort of insurance. They were very adamant that the minimum I'd loose would be about 4-5K and probably I would be liable for tens of thousands of pounds if I had my identity stolen. She wasn't too clear how I would be liable for that if they gave money away to a random...

They shut up quite quickly when I said, in reply, that I didn't think I'd be short of people to sue in such a situation, and therefore couldn't see much need for the protection they were offering.
