A 'wi-fi' logo?

So now I'm looking at my cards!

Where is it located? One of my cards has a bicycle on it...

I NEVER noticed that before!
WTH does a bicycle have to do with it?

Odd...

All three of my bank cards have these. The old ones too, never used it. However I was victim of a thief scanning my card while in line at the Gas station. He did this with his phone.😠

You would think that the banks know about this ....I wonder if you wrap it in tinfoil if it would block someone trying to scan it ?

Its funny, because the range of the chip is dependent on the power of the receiver.

So, they could theoretically be read by toll booths, or any portable scanner.

I wonder if this could be focused by say a satellite?

I know you can buy the rfid chip reader and writers that copy and write the chip to a generic key fob off of ebay for $12 from China.

I asked my bank for a non rfid card, and they sent me another card with chip, with the same card number via mail, that was activated via a phone call asking for no verification or id check.

They appear to be promoting fraud, this unsecure activation process was planned.

Makes me wonder who is behind the "market stimulation"

All kinds of conspiracy potential.

Your right also hotels use the chip now to open doors. The hotels reprogram the chips on spot.

In my case. I was giving my card to the merchant. The crook was acting like he was on the phone reaching over me asking the clerk for a pen. He removed the phone from his ear while doing this and got near my card and atm scanner. I got suspicious immediately and checked with the bank. Sure enough. He was caught thanks to camaras, and 25 other people he hacked during his 30 minute "Phone Conversation".

I have a wallet made for this. A Faraday/lead coated if you will. But it only works when my cards are in my wallet.


To add: the video obtained by police, shows him holding his cell phone near the butts of victims. He did it to me as well, I guess he noticed he could not trace my cards. Which is why he got in close as I was handing my card to the clerk...

According to wikihow, yes it does work, although I will sure some others will disagree, and/or not see the source as valid and find other sources.

Personally I just use cash most of the time, as where I am now that is easier. In France, where I also frequent, they are much better set up and I use my card constantly. Just a year or two ago I got the wifi enabled card there (not asked for, just given), but have never used it with wifi.

If it is used for purchases under 20 Euros it is used without PIN, and anything more than that needs a PIN input.

Well they make a big deal out of not telling anyone else your pin but if you don't need it with the wifi then what is the point . I know that you have to wave the card close to the receiver but I would think some some kind of a boosted receiver could read it from further away .Someone mentioned a satellite to home in on it might work . I don't know but I am starting to think I should start caring more about it .

Same here. Since then I requested through the bank only a valid I.D. before purchases. Even if it's a debit card with pin purchase.
