As demonstrated by ITV’s Phillip Schofield

Everyone’s favourite daytime TV show This Morning featured a selection of our products during a slot about credit card fraud and the fast-growing issue of ‘e-pickpocketing‘.  During a five-minute feature, presenter Phillip Schofield showcased RFID Protect’s latest Leather Multi-card Holder, which has been designed in collaboration with crime-reduction officers at Victoria Police, Australia and is new to the UK.

Mr Schofield was visibly shocked at the ease by which information can be ‘skimmed’ from a contactless credit or debit card; during a demonstration given by Thomas Cannon (Director of Research and Development) at American company ViaForensics.

First shown on Thursday 10th May, 2012 the programme can be viewed again for a limited period, at http://www.itv.com/thismorning/ and a direct link to their Crime File discussion area for this particular issue can be found at: http://www.itv.com/thismorning/life/crime-file-120510/

A spokesman for RFID Protect said,

“…we’re absolutely thrilled that ITV came to us for guidance on the whole issue of ‘e-pickpocketing’, and what members of the public can do to better protect their contactless bank cards.  Working with the team on This Morning has been a great pleasure; it’s great to receive so much positive feedback about our work and products.”

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.
