So I was watching the news the other day (which I rarely do because it’s so damn depressing) and I over heard something that may be able to save us all this holiday season.
Apparently, thieves are getting smarter (as if they weren’t already smart enough) and they’ve found a new way to steal our credit card information without evening having to see them! Each credit card has a RFID (radio frequency identification) chip which allows us to be able to pay for things even if our credit cards are inches away from a RFID reader.
Imagine being able to pay for everything without ever having to go into our wallets or pockets to take out our credit cards!
It sounds great right?
Until you find out that these thieves can purchase their own RFID reader and swipe all of your credit card information just by walking past you! They don’t even have to steal your purse or wallet!
(They’re not only getting smarter, but apparently they’re also getting lazier! Shesh!)
Here’s what you can do to prevent yourself:
Tear off a piece of that aluminum foil you have at home (sitting around waiting for you to bake something so you can finally use it) and just wrap it around your credit cards.
It’s that simple! Be sure to share this new information with all of your friends and family members so they can be safe as well this holiday season!
