“Robbed by radiowave” – The Sun takes this story to a national audience!

TWENTY million Brits are at risk of having their bank details stolen by electronic pickpockets, a Sun investigation has revealed!

Journalist Nick Francis of The Sun newspaper has spearheaded a major investigation into the potential for contactless crime, taking the work of RFID Protect to a national audience.  In an interview with RFID Protect spokesman David Maxwell The Sun revealed:

“…David is a former cop and director of RFID Protect, a firm specialising in products which combat RFID fraud.  It has been a big problem in America for a while and now it is getting to be a problem over here. It is a difficult thing to put statistics on because it’s hard to tell how your card details were skimmed.”

“If you ring your bank they will point out there are many ways to lose your card ID, which is true, and by the time you find out you’ve been skimmed it is too late to work out how.

“But the technology is out there and in the wrong hands.”

RFID Protect – featured in E-Life Magazine

British interactive magazine E-Life recently devoted an entire page spread to an article on RFID Protect, and its work in raising awareness about contactless crime British-based interactive magazine E-Life devoted a full-page spread, in its June 2011 edition, to the issue of ‘anti-skim’ technology in respect of contactless devices, such as e-passports or ‘smart’ credit cards.

“Make yourself invisible. What they can’t see – they can’t steal.” was the message from RFID Protect, and that prevention is always better than cure.
