“Okay, your password has been reset to ‘password2’.” — The customer service rep. at my bank, after calling them, telling them that my account on their web site was inactive due to me mistyping my password too many times, and telling them my name.

There was no verification beyond me telling them my name.

More about the false sense of security when logging into my bank in the next update…
