Statistics are revealing a growing trend in credit card identity theft in the United States. Despite changes to purchasing systems and a shift away from signature-based authorizations, criminals are still one step ahead. Many credit cards, bank cards, driver licenses and other personal items contain RFID (radio frequency identification) technology. Typically contained within a specialized chip, this advanced data transmission method is opening new avenues for credit card fraud and identity theft.
Alex. King, founder and CEO of one of the leading American personal security companies,
Card Armor, explains, “Criminals with access to a RFID scanner can copy data from unsecured credit cards and other personal items without even coming into contact with you. These devices will read information on your cards from several yards away and you won’t have any idea that it has happened until it’s too late. This is why it’s important to always use a quality credit card protector to safeguard your personal information.”
Card Armor specializes in high quality RFID Blocking Sleeves. These protective card holders will prevent any signal transmission, securing personal information. The patent pending design features a transparent cover so that cards can be quickly identified and removed from the sleeve when making purchases. The black backing blocks any attempts to illegally access data stored on the RFID chips, providing users with peace of mind.
