What’s in a name

In San Francisco, a man was surprised when his bank refused to clear a payment to his dog walker because of his pet’s ‘suspicious’ name. He added the name of his dog, Dash, as a reference when attempting to complete the online banking transaction, prompting the bank to stop his cheque. The bank explained they did not process the payment because the name of his nine-year-old pit-bull mix pet sounded a bit like Daesh. Mr Francis, who suffers from a rare form of MS and depends on his dog on a daily basis, said he could not believe the reason why his payment was stopped.
