If you honestly believe that
PM me your Name, Address, Social Security, and Mother's maiden name.
After all security threats are a myth right?
Im not going to give you my name, adress, ss etc. thats not the point!
If you want to steal my card info with a card reader, you are more than welcome to my town and wander in my grocery store with the card reader in your hand and try to stick it to everyone butt in order to get, if lucky, my card's information. Thats the point!
Also, thieves could get your card info remotely through a scanner, but adds that they probably wouldn't be able to use it. Unlike magnetic stripe cards, RFID credit cards encrypt a cardholder's information. To access a consumer's account, thieves not only have to scan the card, they also have to break the card issuer's encryption."RFID Journal Blog - RFID Journal
Good luck with that!
Not all security threats are a myth. Security threats associated with the RFID are a myth!
