SHELL is reintroducing the chip and pin system that was axed at its 600 petrol stations after more than £1million was stolen from customers’ bank accounts.

The petrol giant has been trying to make the system foolproof for FOUR months. Meanwhile, customers have been paying for their petrol by swiping and signing in the old way.

Chip and pin is meant to be tamper-proof – but Shell suspended the system in May after a massive fraud was uncovered at some of its garages in the South of England.

Eight people were held after a Met investigation – one in Guildford, Surrey and another in Portsmouth, Hants.

Two are due back for more police questioning next month. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
