According to the BBC, 8 people have been arrested for stealing £1m though the Chip and PIN system at Shell.

"These Pin pads are supposed to be tamper resistant, they are supposed to shut down, so that has obviously failed," said Apacs spokeswoman Sandra Quinn.

She said Apacs was confident the problem was specific to Shell and not a systemic issue.

A Shell spokeswoman said: "Shell's chip-and-pin solution is fully accredited and complies with all relevant industry standards.

I find it interesting that: 1. Shell system was fully accredited, but Apacs says it is a Shell specific issue and 2. Eight people have already been arressted. My guess is that it was an insider.
