There's suppose to be a type case they now sell where those devices will not work through it. If I can find it I'll post the link...but for the life of me I cannot remember what they were.

That's just great! Not to mention that thing is probably emitting low volumes of radiation right into your front/back pocket whenever you carry it.

So are the cell phones most people now carry. I heard a few years ago lining your wallet or purse with tin foil will take care of people stealing you cc info. I don't know if it works or not. I don't know about you but tin foil is cheap and wont harm you.

Yeah, I've seen those advertised on TV. Some kind of aluminum wallet, I think.

Tinfoil might work, I know that it keeps the aliens from reading my brainwaves. :eyebrows:

This "threat" has been around for years. We use RFID to track expensive printing parts in warehouses. This is great technology. You can't get the CVV or the PIN off the card - you still have to steal the actual card for that.
