CLEVELAND -- It's an unfortunate reality of our digital age. Thieves are now extremely advanced when it comes to stealing your credit card number, and ultimately your digital ID. These days, all it takes is a scanner in someone's shopping bag to grab your credit card number safely tucked into your purse or back pocket. I want to help beat those thieves Thursday with a bargain, in my continued quest to save you time and money.
If you're unfamiliar with how Radio Frequency Identity theft occurs, watch this quick Youtube video of me explaining RFID theft and why we're all at risk.
The same type of scanners that allow you to tap your credit card for payment at check-out at a store can easily be purchased by anyone, carried in a nondescript way through stores or malls to scan your credit card numbers from you, from several feet of way. This type of wireless crime which has significantly increased happens quickly and without our knowledge until it's too late.
Thankfully, something called an RFID Wallet Blocking card which you slip into your wallet can protect up to six different credit cards from RFID theft. The cards I sampled and now use daily from Scanner Guard are extremely effective and the most simple way to protect yourself on the go. Since these cards are on sale today, I figured I would include it below as my favorite daily deal.
