(IT-NEWSWIRE.COM, September 24, 2015 ) Sunnyvale, CA -- This new sleeve design uses the latest technology to block the penetrating waves of any unwanted rfid (radio frequency identification) scan.
Since the introduction of the new "smart card" (a card with a microchip which facilitates a credit card transaction by a mere wave of the card), new security precautions have had to be developed to protect against a new kind of theft: unauthorized card scans.
Criminals carry pocket sized scanners to crowded places in order to scan cards of unsuspecting victims. The result is money and identity theft that add to a growing $50 billion a year problem in credit card fraud.
There are many protective sleeve styles on the internet - usually they're made of plastic or tyvek paper. The problem with these is they wear out by wrinkling and eventually become ineffective. Additionally one cannot see through the card to identify which card to use.
What's new about the Card Armor sleeve is that it has a see-through front to allow easy identification of cards.
Gone are the days of sifting through card sleeves to find a credit card. The Card Armor design a new sleek and classy look created with all the security anyone ever needed against card scanners. It doesn't wrinkle, and it fits just about any standard wallet. One can now be fashionably protected.
Each passport card, drivers license, ATM card or credit card is sheathed separately - one sleeve per card. The Card Armor sleeves comes in a package of six (6) sleeves which will cover most people's card usage. It will also allow for sharing with friends and family members so that they, too, can have the comfort of being secure from credit card fraud.
The sales price is unmatched - it is offered at just under $20 per 6-pack on Amazon. It is better to be safe than sorry.
