Electronic Pick-pocketing is a Real Threat. Cheaply bought scanning devices or DIY sites with instructions can allow savy Hackers to purchase or make equipment to steal your Credit Card Information without having to come into physical contact with you. And even now there are smartphone apps that can do the same thing. A smartphone with NFC (Near Field Communications) capabilities and the appropriate app is an Electronic Pick-pocketer’s dream come true.
The smartphone can even be used to transmit the stolen card information to a card reader right at the register. It is shocking to see how simple and easily it could happen to anyone.
Take a step to protect yourself from these types of threats. Buy a set of wallet protectors to keep cards safe from Electronic Pick-pocketing.
