Thanks for the info, Shore. I checked my new Chase Visa ATM card and my regular Mastercard. Both seem free of the problem spoken about in the video. I will be sure to keep a watch for the problem if I get new cards. It is so aggravating that they seem to be making it even easier for theives to steal from innocent people. We just have to keep warning each other so we can be prepared. Thanks for watching out for us and sharing this!

I'm not surprised the least. I've always been suspicious of ANY wireless data transfer, especially banking, e.g., via cell phone. I will NEVER jump on that bandwaggon, no matter what. Just not worth the risk and aggravation. How stupid do banks think we are? Well, I guess a good chunk of people are that stupid (or gullible). Don't come crying when your carelessness and/or desire for meaningless convenience and/or being among the up-to-date in crowd bites you in your bum.

As many as 85 percent of all identity theft victims find out about the crime only when they are denied credit or employment, contacted by the police, or have to deal with collection agencies, credit cards and bills. A study on the aftermath of an identity theft by the non profit Theft Resource Center found that victims spend 600 hours recovering from the crime because they must contact and work with credit card companies, banks, credit bureaus, and law enforcement. This time can add up to as much as $16,000 in lost wages or income. For more information check hereModerated by KenBDG - Removed link. Please see forum policy regarding new members and links.
