So what do I need to know about RFID Scanning?
What you need to know is that there are bad people in the world who want to capitalize on your good fortune and scan or steal your credit card information. Unfortunately, the dark side has figured out how to obtain scanners that read RFID cards (Your Credit Cards) while walking past you in the airport, waiting in line at a register or sitting in a coffee shop. The RFID scanner can be hidden in a brief case or even a pocket and can be reading your personal Credit Card information without you realizing it.
How Does a RFID Blocking Wallet Protect Me?

What is RFID?
RFID is the acronym for Radio Frequency Identification, the latest technology that incorporates an imbedded chip in your credit cards. As credit card companies reissue their credit cards, they are including a small computer chip with the card which can be read by flashing your card across a small kiosk at the register rather than swiping the card. This technology is now also being used by the US Government when issuing passports to make it quicker to scan your information when traveling and reentering the country.
