EMP: electro magnetic pulse, its not microwaves. Why use microwaves to destroy something in something thats mainly water (your body) since your blood will absorb most of the power before the chip is toast.
The EMP I'm talking about is much like an Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Unless they can make chips into compact vacuum tubes, they will always have a break down voltage of less then 2000V. You can induce very high voltages at low/safe currents into metals so the encased chip doesn't pop and fly appart but just shorts out. The coils in the chip would need super thin wire coatings able to withstand 5000V which would be alien tech.
If not that, then use a transmitter running on its frequency to confuse the chip and the observer. There are many ways to fool and break the tech we know, its another thing if its alien tech.
VeriChip, the company that makes radio frequency identification--RFID--tags for humans, has moved one step closer to getting its technology into hospitals. The Federal Drug Administration issued a ruling Tuesday that essentially begins a final review process that will determine whether hospitals can use RFID systems from the Palm Beach, Fla.-based company to identify patients and/or permit relevant hospital staff to access medical records, said Angela Fulcher, vice president of marketing and sales at VeriChip. VeriChip sells 11-millimeter RFID tags that get implanted in the fatty tissue below the right tricep. When near one of Verichip's scanners, the chip wakes up and radios an ID number to the scanner. If the number matches an ID number in a database, a person with the chip under his or her skin can enter a secured room or complete a financial transaction.

Now... this is really great... here's a couple possibilities for new crime to come from such a thing:
Chip Hackerz and downloadable chip h4ckz and w4r3z
Black market chips... stolen from some of the 'missing persons'
Back-alley surgeons (they would make a killing from chip replants)
Electronic terrorism of a completly new level
Think of this: How would you feel if you DID take the chip and a year later you are reading about a chip virus transmitted via the GPS function that kills people? A virus that is making people go insane? Government abuse of power using the chip to control masses? Problems between the chip and high voltage areas? The missing person's rate has only gone down by 5%? new crimes being committed because of the chip, like mutilations? Or insanity driven self mutilations? I could go on and get even more in depth... just use your imagination... what could you do to a chip if you had the right tools, or a sick mind? I think it would be kinda funny to scramble chips while you are walking down the street (of course a person would get caught easily by CCTV).

Of course it will be done sneakily. It could be started off - without our knowledge at first too - with infant vaccinations. No doubt all military personnel would be implanted with chips when they lined up for their shots.
It's only a question of time, folks.
