Alert Credit Card Pick PocketsALERT….watch the video below as criminals are scanning the cards while in your purse or pocket and cloning your card information and making purchases.

 RFID stands forRadio-Frequency IDentification. The acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and an antenna. The RFID device serves the same purpose as a bar code or a magnetic strip on the back of a credit card or ATM card; it provides a unique identifier for that object. And, just as a bar code or magnetic strip must be scanned to get the information, the RFID device must be scanned to retrieve the identifying information.

Watch the video below or click on this link. This is very scary. I am checking all my cards today. An agent friend of mine just received a Chase card with this electronic chip in it. She is contacting the bank and requesting a new card without the chip inserted.
