In the current climate of identity theft, credit card skimming, the sale of personal information, and using transmitter/receivers to steal cars by detecting the modern car key on the internet.there seems to be more RFID protected pouches, wallets, and credit card holders on sale.
But the big question is: … do they actually work?
For peace of mind I bought two pouches to house our car keys and wallets. After owning them (and feeling smug and safe) for many months, I finally decided to test the wallets out by standing next to our car with the key in the puch and pressing the ‘open’ button. Much to my surprise the car opened! So much for feeling safe. Now I wonder if these pouches, wallets, and card holders actually work.
I hope that Choice has the equipment that may be able to test a few and give some indication of whether these things might actually work.
