New Wallets are a Scream! (And why you really need one.)
Oh my God you guys! Like, new wallets have just arrived and they're, like, totally awesome! (Is it just me, or does everyone imagine The Scream as a valley girl? Just me? Oh...that's cool. ) Mona Lisa, The Touch, Butterflies, Hummingbirds and more + same great RFID theft protection + same amazing price (only $10 each!) makes for a happy wallet any way you look at it! (I choose to think the screamer is just very excited to be on a wallet. )
Wondering what's up with these awesomely amazing wallets? Well, I'm so glad you asked!
So you know that little chip that you have in most of your credit cards? The one that makes it take longer at check out in most stores. The one that has every cashier and waiter using un-ladylike and un-gentlemanly language? So that chip is meant to protect your credit card information. YAY, right? Yes, that IS a great thing. But (there's always a but, isn't there?) what the chip protects against are the data breeches that have happened in the big chains like Target and Home Depot because it adds a layer of protection in the Corporate system computers ONLY.
For those of us out and about with our credit cards in our pocket or our purse, the chip is actually not protected, it's very vulnerable to hacking. Thieves can easily and cheaply buy what's called a RFID (radio frequency identification) scanner. Then, if they're within 3 feet of you, they can scan all of the information off of that credit card chip, and voila, they have your information. They can do this through your pocket, purse, wallet, gum wrappers, tissues, and whatever else might be hanging out cluttering your pockets and purse. It's actually kind of scary when you think about it.
Don't be scared, we're here to help - and the solution is cute, too!
