Oct. 15, 2015 - PRLog -- The world can be a scary place, and the threat of identity theft is constantly on the rise. Hackers and thieves have been utilizing an extremely effective bevy of tools in order to take what rightfully yours, but the days of illicit hardware being installed at gas pumps and ATM's may soon be over.

By the end of October, nearly all credit and debit cards issued to law-abiding consumers will contain something called an RFID chip.

Radio frequency identity chips are small computer chips that can be used to electronically transfer data, and are already in use in a wide variety of products on the market. When your pet is lost, the micro-chip that can be used to identify the wayward animal is actually an RFID chip. When scanned by a veterinarian with the proper tools, the information stored in the chip can tell the good doctor the pet's name, who the pet belongs to, their address, their health concerns, and more.

That technology will soon be on your credit card, with all of the pertinent information accessible to anyone, and we mean ANYONE, with the proper equipment to read such cards.

Given the ingenuity of thieves and hackers, there is no doubt in mind that some of this equipment will fall into their nefarious hands - if it hasn't already!

Now think about this: If a veterinarian can retrieve this information from an RFID chip embedded under the skin of your beloved pet, with scanner technology that has been around for decades upon decades, will these identity thieves be able to procure more technologically advanced equipment capable of scanning your credit or debit card's RFID chip from a few feet away? Certainly. Will they be able to read this information through your pants pocket and through your wallet? Without a doubt. If the fur and hide of your family pet provide no protection from the outdated scanner technology at your local vet's office, it is inevitable that your khakis and thin leather wallet will be susceptible as well.

How are forward thinking consumers dealing with this impending threat? Aluminum wallets.
