Protective credit card sleeves.A contactless credit card is different from an ordinary credit card. A contactless credit card uses RFID technology to store information about your account and to transfer it to the merchant. IT'S THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE! Standard credit cards carry data on a magnetic strip; when the card is swiped against a reader, the data is transferred. It is expected that, by the end of 2006, between 35 and 50 million contactless cards will be in use in the United States at as many as 50,000 merchant locations.

RFID-based credit cards, ID badges, passports and keychain passes are designed to be brought close to a reader. The reader has an antenna that emits radio waves; the tag responds by sending back its data. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology that uses communication via electromagnetic waves to exchange data between a terminal and an electronic tag attached to an object, for the purpose of identification and tracking. Some tags can be read from several meters away and beyond the line of sight of the reader.

Scary facts and figures about Identity Theft

Literally hundreds of thousands of people have fallen victim to some unscrupulous person looking for an easy way to get something-for-nothing. The latest figure I've been able to verify is "over 13,000,000 from 2001 - 2006", Jan-Dec of each year. Many cases are never reported because it might cause embarrassment to a family member (the thief) or it's resolved privately. 16% say it was a friend, relative or co-worker who stole their identity.

  • In 34% of the cases, someone obtained credit card info, forged a card in their name and used it to make purchases.
  • 11% lost or had their wallet/purse stolen, using the identity to create a new identity for themselves.
  • 10 % had charge accounts opened in stores in their name with purchases made as them.
  • 7% said it was a bank account opened or forged checks, getting money from the account.
  • Only 15% are alerted by the bank or credit card company; 85% find out when the damage is done and possibly, irrevocable.
  • Even those who were warned early have taken longer to eliminate negative information from credit reports.
