As technology changes, so do the scams! New credit cards that have Radio Frequency Identification chips are now prone to sophisticated hackers. Only RFID blocking technology, like what is included in Big Skinny wallets, will protect your personal information from attack.
If you've ever been a victim of identity theft or know someone who has, you know the devastating effects it can have on credit and the endless number of hours it takes to correct it. Don't become a victim of identity theft and pay thousands to an attorney to straighten out something that never should have happened in the first place.
One of the best ways to secure your personal and credit card information it to purchase a wallet that has RFID blocking technology. Protect yourself by buying a wallet that guards all your important personal information wherever you go.
RFID chips eliminate the need for a magnetic strip and allow store clerks to use a special scanner that can detect credit cards wirelessly up to four inches away. Its special design eliminates the need for credit cards to leave your possession, like at a restaurant when the waiter or waitress takes your card when it's time to pay. While highly innovative in design, sophisticated thieves can purchase a scanning device online and steal your credit card and personal information without it even leaving your purse or wallet.
