Why you should never hand over your card to the server when paying with contactless

    With a simple tap, money will fly out of your bank account and into the pockets of the landlord or restaurant owner. But sometimes your waiter, waitress or bartender won't present the card machine to you for you to tap. They'll ask to take your card so they can do it themselves. That's fine, right? Wrong. According to fraud expert Andrew Goodwill, you should never hand over your card in any circumstances. The founder of the Goodwill Group against CNP (card not present) fraud shared his advice with Mirror Online. He said: There is an unwritten code of good practice which is that when paying by either contactless card or by any other card, that the card should always be in the sight of the customer. If the card reader is not brought to you for the transaction to take place t...

Why we hate you: ISIS reveal 6 reasons why they despise Westerners in jihadi magazine

    In an article entitled why We Hate you and Want to Fight You, the 15th edition of the terrorists' periodical Dabiq spells out why the jihads are hell bent on destroying the West. Warped jihadis around the globe have killed hundreds in terror attacks within the past month.

It begins: "Shortly following the blessed attack on a sodomite, Crusader nightclub by the mujahid Omar Mateen, American politicians were quick to jump into the spotlight and denounce the shooting, declaring it a hate crime, an act of terrorism, and an act o...

MH370 was flown into water deliberately crash expert says

    A leading crash investigator says he is confident that MH370 was flown into water deliberately. A section of wing from the missing aircraft shows evidence it was extended when the plane hit the water, proving that someone was in control of the aircraft, air crash expert Larry Vance says. There is no other alternate theory that fits, Mr Vance, who helmed the investigation into the downing of Swissair Flight 111 in 1998, told Channel Nine's 60 minutes programme on Sunday . Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 with 239 passengers and crew en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. The current search operation, led by Australia, has been based on the theory that the jet was not under human control when it crashed after it veered off course and headed south over the Indian Oce...

Russian helicopter shot down in Syria

    A Russian helicopter has been shot down by rebels in northern Syria, Russian military officials say. Defence officials say the Mi-8 transport aircraft had five people on board.

Russia is a key backer of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and is supporting pro-government forces with air strikes on rebels. Government forces cut off rebel-held eastern parts of Aleppo last month. Russia and Syr...
