There are few things more frightening than reviewing your credit card statement after an overseas trip to find that you are down a few thousand dollars. Or wading through credit card debt that you didn't create!
If you can somehow function through the initial shock, you'll probably be thinking, "how did this happen?" Well, these days our credit cards feature RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) chips, which transmit signals that make things such as swiping your credit card at the supermarket and automatic payments quick and easy. These chips also track what we've spent and where we've been, and also store your credit card's number, the name on the card, and its expiry date. All of this is a goldmine for identity thieves, who can use simple scanners to retrieve your confidential information via your credit card's RFID chip. The next thing you know, you have unauthorised transactions happening all over the place, and a circus of hoops to jump through to set things right again.
But thanks to Korjo, the brainiacs in travel accessories, you can keep your credit cards safe in a simple way...so simple, in fact, you might at first doubt these little Credit Card Defenders. But looks can be deceiving: the insides of these paper sleeves are able to block various signals (including RFID transmissions) from your credit card's smart chip, and therefore prevent unauthorised transmission of your card's information. Which keeps your confidential information in your hands, and your money in your bank.
After all, there's nobody else like you out there, so keep it that way!
