Graham, I take your point, but as I understand it a protective layer has to be 
scraped away to reveal the characters of a pin when sent in the normal 
manner.   Receiving one which had been already exposed would alert the 
customer that security had been breached and presumably he or she would 
immediately contact the bank concerned.   The packets containing the CDs 
I received could have been opened en route and if carefully re-sealed I 
doubt whether I would have been aware of it.
