Last week, my husband was the victim of credit card theft! We found out when his card was denied at the gas station at the worst possible moment. Once he looked at his account on his phone, it showed a few purchases in Austin, a city 45 minutes away from us. Well, we haven't been there in about 3 months! His card was shut down, and we had to apply for a new one. It was a huge hassle! So, somehow his card information was stolen right out of his wallet without it ever leaving his possession! How the heck does that even happen?!?! We have suspicions about when we purchased some lumber, the checkout girl had a friend sitting there on her phone. We believe that's when the theft happened since that was the last purchase my husband made before charges started showing up in Austin. So, somehow this girl stole his card info from 5 feet away!
When I was given the opportunity to try these nifty RFID card protectors out, I just about tripped over myself to go order them! Once the new card comes in, we're definitely keeping it in one of these! You really don't know how much you use your card in everyday life until you don't have it! It's a true pain!
