WARNING

This warning is from Simon Cozens' Finance::Bank::LloydsTSB, and seems just as apt here.

This is code for online banking, and that means your money, and that means BE CAREFUL. You are encouraged, nay, expected, to audit the source of this module yourself to reassure yourself that I am not doing anything untoward with your banking data. This software is useful to me, but is provided under NO GUARANTEE, explicit or implied.
