lighting and heating today We now can instantly flick a lighter or strike a match to make a flame But it was not long ago that there were no such things as matches or lighters To make fire, it was necessary to strike a piece of iron on flint for sparks to ignite some tinder If the tinder was damp, or the flint old, you had to borrow some fire from a neighbour We not know exactly when or how people first used fire Perhaps, many ages ago, they found that sticks would burn if they were dropped into some hole where melted lava from a volcano lay boiling They brought the lighted sticks back to make their fire in a cave Or, they may have seen trees catch fire through being struck by lightning, and used the trees to start their own fires Gradually people learned they could start a fire without travelling far to find flames They rubbed two pieces of wood together This method was used for thousands of years When people became used to making fires with which to cook food and stay warm at night, they found that certain resins or gums from trees burnt longer and brighter They melted resins and dipped branches in the liquid to make torches that lit their homes at night Iron stands in which torches used to be fixed can still be seen in old buildings of Europe There was no lighting in city streets until gas lamps, and then electric lamps were installed Boys ran about London at night carrying torches of burning material They were called torch boys, or link boys, and earned a living by guiding visitors to friends’ houses at night For centuries homes were lit by candles until oil was found Even then, oil lamps were no more effective than a cluster of candles We read about the splendours and marvels of ancient palaces and castles, but we forget that they must have been gloomy

Today, we frequently read newspaper stories of unqualified people who are convicted of posing as surgeons, dentists, airline pilots or financial experts These people are sometimes portrayed as amiable crooks, but in reality, they are not amiable; they are fraudsters who prey on people's good nature Fraudsters can more than just trick you or steal your cash; they can steal your identity, too Some years ago, Derek Bond, a seventy two-year-old retired civil servant, found out for himself how dreadful modern fraud can be As he stepped off a plane at Cape Town airport, he was arrested and put in prison It was worrying enough that he could have been mistaken for a 'most wanted' criminal, but what made matters worse was that, despite having an impeccable reputation in his hometown, it took three weeks for Mr Bond's family to convince the authorities that they had made a mistake Away from people who knew him, Mr Bond's reputation was based solely on the contents of a police file If that file said that Mr Derek Bond, a man of medium height and build, was actually Derek Lloyd Sykes, a conman responsible for a multi-million dollar fraud in Texas, then who could prove that it wasn't true? Mr Bond was the victim of identity theft, where a thief assumes another person's identity and uses it to steal directly from that person or to commit crimes using that person's name In the world of organized crime, for those involved illegal immigration or benefit fraud, as in drug-trafficking, money laundering fake ID is a license to print money Even more worrying is the fact that there is now a ready market for stolen identities among the world's terrorists More and more people are shopping and banking online or by phone these days, so the opportunities for the fraudulent use of credit cards or other personal information are increasing rapidly In fact, it is true to say that identity theft is booming, and for those affected by it, the consequences are often catastrophic Under existing financial regulations, banks and credit organizations are required to 'know their customers' before they are allowed to open an account This means that they have to request specific proofs of identity before they allow them to start spending] usually proof of name and address and a photo ID such as a passport or a driver's license This sounds satisfactory, but in reality it is far from foolproof The problem is that stealing someone's identity is not rocket science In theory, all an unscrupulous thief needs to start using a person's name is a few snippets of information, such as a discarded phone bill or a credit card receipt It has been claimed that 'bin diving' is a common way for thieves to get information In an extensive survey, a credit checking agency examined the contents of 400 rubbish bins They found that one in five of these contained enough sensitive information to commit identity fraud Every time people buy or sell goods, individuals are providing information about themselves on paper Receipts, invoices and bills all contain personal information that is useful to a fraudster But identity thieves don't even need to get their hands dirty How often people hand over their credit or debit cards in shops? How many people buy something over the phone or shop online? All it takes is one dishonest employee and people can say goodbye to their hard-earned cash Today, sophisticated criminals also use computer software packages to hack into the systems of banks and other organizations to steal lists of their customers' identities, lists which can sometimes run to millions of individuals [Sourse: First Masterclass 2015 Student’s Book] Question 38: People should be particularly careful about using credit or debit cards because _ A corrupt staff may pass on their details to criminals B criminals may find a way of stealing them C online systems may not be secure D criminals may listen to people giving their details on the phone Question 39: Criminals commonly collect information about individuals by _ A reading their telephone bills B stealing their credit cards C going through things people have thrown away D contacting a credit checking agency Question 40: Describing something as 'not rocket science' in the passage means that it is _ A very difficult B incomprehensible C straightforward D complicated Question 41: In Cape Town, it was difficult fo r Derek Bond to establish his innocence because _ A his correct details were in a police file B nobody knew him personally there C there was proof that he was a criminal D he had a bad reputation there Question 42: The main purpose of this article is to _ A tell the story of Derek Bond B describe the dangers of identity theft C advise readers how to avoid having their identity stolen D explain howto steal someone's identity Question 43: The writer says that real-life fraudsters _ A are criminals who cheat other people B live a glamorous lifestyle C are not as bad as they seem D are not qualified to ordinary jobs Mark the letter A, B, C, or Don your answer sheet to indicate the most suitable response to complete each of the following exchanges Question 44: ~ Andy: “Anyway, as I bent down to pick it up, my trousers split!" ~ Bob: “ "A You must have been mortified B How dare you!

Question 45: ~ Dylan: “I'm thinking of doing some shopping today Can you recommend anywhere?" ~ Steward: " _" A Well, you could try Oxford Street There are lots of big department stores there B That’s OK In that case, how about going to the Roman ruins down by the lake?
