One of the more worrying types of crimes in this day and age is credit card theft. Ever since they became popular in the 1980s, criminals and thieves have been stealing credit cards or even identities and using them to get what they want. Now, it is getting even easier for credit cards to be stolen without them ever even leaving your wallet or pocketbook.
A new system called a Radio Frequency Identification System has made getting one’s credit card information easier. It works via a series of radio waves and was designed to be used for supermarket check outs in order to scan customer’s credit cards and save time. It appears that it has an unfortunate side effect as well.
Since the RFIS scanners can scan through many different types of materials, this means that thieves equipped with the scanners (which are very small, contains the same type of radio wave as the supermarket’s version and can be hidden in clothing such as coats) can scan all your credit card information through items such as purses and use it to their own ends when they find the data files.
How to combat this theft system is simple. Just use a simple lining of tinfoil and this will scramble the signal as well as block the system from picking up any readings.
