Ok, I thought about this last night.
Have you ever looked at your bank receipts? Noticed how, in your head, the further right of the first couple of digits you record, the less relevant they become.
2110, becomes two thousand, 48,520 becomes at least forty-five thousand, and so forth.
Now how many people bank at a given bank? I really don’t have the figures but, would say five hundred million be too many for Barclays?
So what happens if you ‘loose’ a little number furthest to the right of the main digit before the decimal? Actually, even the first number after the decimal would suffice, say, a penny in pounds, or a dime in dollars?
That’s millions of pounds or dollars for whoever can figure out a way to do it.
Even if the customer were to be diligent in their accounting, there’s no way to factor in all the percentages accruing from, or deducted for, every single transaction made depending on its type.
Who would know?
