So it looks like private personal data that is supposed to be secure is completely vulnerable making the RFID and the ID card completely void..

We've all seen films and tv programmes where gangs send an member to go and do a specific type oof hob to get inside info..

perhaps this is a real life example..

Police documents dumped in street

An inquiry has been ordered after confidential police documents were discovered dumped on a Teesside street.

The documents, which are several years old, include the names, dates of birth, addresses and telephone numbers of dozens of members of the public.

They were found on a grass verge in the Hemlington area of Middlesbrough by a man out walking his dog.

Cleveland Police said it was taking the incident "extremely seriously" and had launched an immediate investigation.

The documents included forms and a notebook containing details of offences and victims of crime.

Money is always a great motivator for crime.

This is nothing new, there has been history involving such things as long as their has been cops and crooks. I'm sure withheld info on the case involves gang activity...those would would be eager to pay for such info on themselves or their enemies.

Can't trust anyone these days....

How do you think they get the criminal background checks online for 20$.

Someone is passing something illegal somewhere.

But dont you dare break the law only they can.
