Prevent electronic pickpocketing, identity theft, and payment fraud by breaking blocking the personal information being sent by radio waves from your credit cards, passports, and other ID cards - Use Identity Stronghold RFID blocking products.
RFID and Electronic Pickpocketing
The RFID chip in a credit card emits the account number, expiration date and other information.
About 100 million credit cards now have this contactless technology embedded into them. However, over the next 2-3 years, it is expected that credit card issuers will replace every single magnetic stripe credit and debit card with a new contactless smartcard. Why shouldn't they? These cards seem to make it all easier. So much easier that some folks are reading your credit cards before you even take them out of your wallet.
RFID chips now exist in:
- Chase's Blink Credit Card
- Mastercard PayPass Credit Card
- Many Corporate IDs
- Many University IDs
- United States Passports
- Euro Passports
How does an RFID Blocking Wallet protect you?
Imagine some of these possible real-life scenarios:
A shadowy character crouches unseen in the bushes. Armed with a laptop. He watches as his prey walks by. Invisible radio waves emitting from the credit-card in his wallet get picked up by the laptop, recorded, and saved onto a cloned card. For all intents and purposes, this man becomes you, and has decided to go shopping.
Or maybe he picked up the passkey that lets you into your office building. With ease, he can now walk into your secure office building and steal your company's equipment. The next morning, security guards are waiting in your cube to have a chat.
The nightmare scenario was brought forth recently - a bomb lies waiting in a garbage can. Sensitive electronics read the identification cards and passports of the people who walk by, waiting until somebody of your nationality comes close...
Credit card companies and governments are putting RFID chips in your cards and identification, sometimes without your knowledge. Protect yourself and your money with a wallet that specifically inhibits those radio frequencies from escaping until you pull your card out.
