When you say its a cold day before you'll do on-line banking and yet you 
use plastic?    The same liabilities are in use wtih On-Line Banking as 
used with Plastic. We see a lot of paper statements delivered to the 
wrong address... or not delivered at all (Wonder who has them?).

Comparatively, On-Line banking is far safer if you're monitoring it and 
using it.
