Two postal workers sparked a worldwide data theft alert after stealing a Christmas cake and replacing it with another package.
The courier workers gobbled the cake and simply put its address label on a parcel that was supposed to be going to Germany's LBB bank in Frankfurt.
The bank package contained the personal details of thousands of customers around the world who were warned their accounts might have been compromised.
