Police investigate allegations of Tesco online fraud

It is thought the number of complaints received by Tesco is less than 100, while a handful of customers have been reimbursed.

In a statement, Tesco said: "We have launched a thorough investigation into a small number of incidents and referred the matter to the police. In the meantime, we'd like to ask any customers who believe they're affected to contact us directly so that we can make sure their accounts are up to date."
