Wow! Im so impressed with the demo!!! Who knows if it was a set up!?! LOL
What was shown was just one single data point and it is useless if they want to speak for the population. What would the successful rate be with a 95% confidence interval??? Show me the statistics then let's talk about risks!
Such demo is purely entertaining. Sadly, people went nuts to believe that such theft exists en masse.
With a population of 75 mil RFID cards in circulation in the US, I think everyone should invest $350 to become a card skimmer and make a living out of it. I bet the ROI is very high!!!
I don't blind myself with any thing! Just like the OP, as an AmEx cardmember, I am protected from any fraud/unauthorized transactions. So where is the risk/threat?
With that being said, linking over-the-air pickpocketings with giving someone my address, ss, mother's maiden name, et. is way too far stretched.
