The scammers don’t need a man-on-the-inside. It’s a lot more simple than that. They just need your discarded receipt.

Not true. The first set of numbers are asterisked out

Only the last 11 numbers are unique. The first numbers are 98263000 for everyone. The last 7 are shown on the receipt, leaving only 4 to generate. There are even nectar number generators online. The security is pathetic.
The hassle factor in getting the nectar balance restored is painful.
