ALUMINIUM ANTI FRAUD WALLETS

I have just seen these advertised on tv for $49.95 plus postage - you can buy one get one free which is still around $30 each...I just bought some of these on ebay for $2.45 each from China, the exact same wallets.. If you want one dont buy the ones one tv, buy from ebay. I cant believe what they are asking!! Also, one competition is offering these as a runner up prize advertising worth $50....HOw over inflated...

What the hell is an anti-fraud wallet?

ive seen them on tv and thought about buying so thanks.

Apparently if you keep stuff in a wallet there is technology so people walking near you can scan your date through your wallet.

Aluminium foil is effective and cheaper

It's very sad that the world has come to this, an anti fraud wallet. what's next?

yes it's made from aluminium. apparently people can scan your credit cards through normal leather wallets but they cant scan through aluminium. I didnt buy the for the fraud factor. I bought them mainly for hubby to carry his cards in and I use one also.

I'm sorry but wouldn't you SEE someone scanning your wallet???

No you don't see it happening they just walk past you with some sort of techology gadget thing in their bag and hey presto it's done, they would just look like any normal person walking down the street!

What technology gadget thing?

It sounds like a load of crap to me. If it was that easy to do, and that common that we needed aluminium anti-fraud wallets, how come everyone doesn't have them already?

It sounds like a scare-marketing tactic to me. Tell people about a random once off occurrence, tell them they'll have no idea when it happens and scare them into buying a wallet with a bit of metal in it.

If the "technology" thing is that powerful they can just walk past you and somehow steal (what are they stealing exactly??) do you honestly think a flimsy bit of metal will stop them?

I'm not really concerned about this, but I am a little concerned about the CBA discontinuing plain old ATM cards with VISA debit cards with RFID chips, simply because I don't want or need one, not because of the security implications of RFID theft.

A bit off topic but the bank gave me one of those cards that you just tap and go and I did not even realize I had one.
When I got a new card they just sent it. A few months later a lady behind the counter at bunnings told me it was one. I didnt ask for it.

It was on the news a little while back, I'm not exactly sure how it's done because I didn't watch it all but it can happen! They did a demo of it.

I was told to wrap my new card in aluminium foil as the new tap & go ones if you are next in line holding your card ready to pay the tap & go machines can pick up your card details if you are to close to machine & so you are paying for the person in front of you.
Also if you have savings & credit on same card, the tap & go machine will take it straight off the credit account not savings. That is with my ANZ one anyway.

The paypass can only work when activated by the operator. And if it's active, the person will be holding their card a lot closer to the unit than the one thats in your wallet or your pocket. They just do not have the range to scan something further away than about 10cm. So that's a furphy. (I work with paypass eftpos every day)

And it's well known that it's only credit. It says it on all the posters, eftpos tags etc. Even if your card can do credit or savings, it WILL do it under credit. No one has ever pretended or claimed otherwise.

If you go to your local Bunnings store. We have little metal credit card holders for $1.00. They are kept on a hanger near the Bunnings gift cards at the registers.
I am a people greeter and our store gives them away as free bees every now and then.
$1 is a worth while investment.
I used the holder overseas recently. Since I didn't take all my loyalty cards etc. The little metal flip top holder was all I needed and saved travelling with a bulging purse.
