As Seen on Global News 16x9 on Sunday, January 23, 2011, RFID Electronic Pickpocketing is simple to do and is on the rise. Protect yourself with our ID Stronghold Secure SleeveŽ and Secure BadgeholderŽ.
Our Secure SleeveŽ create an RFID shield by blocking the electromagnetic energy necessary to power and communicate with contactless smart cards, passports, enhanced drivers licenses (EDLs), TWIC, PIV, CAC and transit cards. This is essential to total security because although most contactless smart card systems implement industry-standard security mechanisms, readers can be modified to access information without authorization.
Credit card readers can be easily purchased that will read the credit account number, expiration date, and even name off your new RFID enabled credit card. These readers can easily be concealed by electronic pickpocketers so that someone could walk through a crowd, ride on a subway, elevator, or other crowded area and steal nearby credit card information without the card holder ever knowing it happened.
