I think they've demonstrated a complete lack of caring. The problem is
*very* easily solved with a tiny, inexpensive device that fits inside a
wallet or purse. Martijn described one such device. Considering the ease
with which the problem could be solved, and combined with the fact that
it's not yet solved, I think the "don't care" hypothesis is a natural

Either that, or the problem isn't as widespread as we fear, so the banks
and/or their customers aren't really losing much money.
