Prevents "Electronic Pickpocketing" of RFID Chips Embedded in new Credit Cards and Drivers Licenses
The RFID Leather Wallet thwarts this electronic theft with a three layered electronic shield which is built directly into the wallet lining. This shield has been laboratory tested and is approved by the Federal Information Processing Standards, also known as FIPS 201. FIPS 201 is a new military grade compliance standard for government employees for blocking RFID signals when used in information safety sensitive jobs.
FIPS 201 approved products block RF energy from activating and cloning data from cards containing RFID chips such as those contained within newly issued credit cards.
The RFID Leather Tri-Fold Wallet contains the exclusive RFID shielding material in the wallet lining so your entire contents are protected. More and more credit card companies are embedding RFID tags containing sensitive personal financial data within their credit cards. The RFID tags make these credit cards RFID enabled so they can be read by a new breed of credit card readers that you simply have to “pass” the card over the reader.
Technology has always been a double-edged sword, and it now offers the capability where thieves can silently download credit card and ID data through a process called "skimming." These modern day pick-pockets can access information without you knowing it. They do it through your wallet or purse.
The apparent benefits of RFID credit card transactions are convenience, speed and the elimination of employee contact with the card. To minimize accidental reading of these cards, they are designed to be read at a distance of one to four inches from the reader. Its because of this technology that can allow an RF enabled card to be "hi-jacked" by use of an unauthorized RFID scanner, and then the information used for fraudulent purposes. It is important to note that there are two parts to this process: Scanning the card to retrieve the information, and then being able to use the retrieved information to make a fraudulent financial transaction.
The implication in recent media articles is that it is easy to "hi-jack" the RFID information, and that it is easy to then use this information to make fraudulent purchases.

Questions about RFID technology
Will the RFID material wear out? No, it is designed to last for years of use.
The RFID material in the wallet looks like paper.
It looks like paper because it is paper. But layered in between two external coats of paper is a very thin metallic layer of the patented FIPS 201 approved RFID shielding material.
How can I tell if I have an RFID tag in one of my cards?
RFID tags are used in a number of personal identification cards including government ID cards, numerous credit cards (like the Chase Bank Card), building access cards, and e-passports and driver's licenses. If you “beep” your card without it touching the reader at your office building, the grocery store, the airport, and a growing number of other places, your card is being wireless activated and contains RFID technology.
Can an RFID signal go through things like leather, vinyl and clothing?
Yes, that is exactly why the RFID shield is a smart security precaution.
How far away can a smart credit card embedded with an RFID chip be read?
Some reports have shown that information can be "skimmed" from up to 30 feet away.
Who is most vulnerable to this type of ID theft?
People who live in urban areas and frequent public places like coffee shops, airports or commuter trains, for example.
