Thanks for all the info on this subject. My new Nectar card has arrived. I’ve quickly registered it and transferred most of the balance back to Avios, to avoid this happening again. Now, who is going to tell me about security flaws with Avios and worry me ?

I certainly wouldn’t keep the cards linked. As you know one has flawed security.

My understanding of the Nectar scam is that it’s the nectar number (which can be made into a usable barcode for spending by fraudsters) which is the problem. The login to the nectar account seems safe, as is the BA Executive club login.
