Perhaps BT can dish out some MBA qualifications another time. It's bound to help.

Ah, Capita. This leaped out at me from their Wikipedia page:

"In 2006 Capita Financial Administrators (CFA) was fined £300,000 by the Financial Services Authority for having poor anti-fraud controls."

I know, six years ago, but it doesn't bode well...
