    Default Electronic Pickpocketing

    We've all read the stories of ATM and Credit Card cloning. Someone here said they didn't understand how their account was compromised, because they never used the card in DR.

    You all need to watch this. Not widely posted and will probably remain that way until it is a wide spread problem. Now that the crooks know how easy this is I will be surprised if ID theft does not rise dramatically.

    This is especially important for those who travel and are in crowded places, but everywhere is a potential problem. Be aware at all times and be careful.

    Watch this and weep....

    Why don't you just silver coat the Moths in your wallet?

    I received Today my New Mastercard with the Note from the Bank that they changed my card ahead of expiration Date(old one been valid til 2013) to provide me with that New Chip Security, darn.
    I don't have the new card in my hands, been delivered to my House in Germany, friends will bring it over here on their x-mas visit.

    I guess a Metal Wallet it will be for My x-mas Gift, lol.
