Card Defenders- An Ideal Christmas Stocking Filler Present For Family and Friends

Alert message sent 08/12/2019 18:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

This is a message from Princes Risborough & District Neighbourhood Watch Association.

With the considerable increase in the volume and the variety of cons and scams, thieves are adapting their methods to come up with new ways to steal your personal data and information.

We recommend that everyone carrying bank contactless cards should have one or more Card Defenders. This also applies to Oyster cards and students' cards.

On most new credit or debit cards, you will have a wireless symbol which informs you that your card uses RFID technology. This allows you to simply tap your card on card-readers to make payments of up to £30. However, this comes with security risks, as criminals could create a RFID reader with minimal effort and steal your details. They may also download an app from their Smartphones to achieve the same results. They only need to brush pass your pocket or bag with their device to do this. You might not even notice it happening.

You can prevent such things with the Card Defender. It is a sleeve holder that contains RFID blocking technology and it protects contactless cards from being read.

These cards are available from Princes Risborough & District Neighbourhood Watch Association for just £1.00 each, or 5 for £4.00 , or 10 for £7.00 plus postage.

In addition, we can  now offer new Card Defender Diamonds. They also provide RFID blocking technology, but as a single black card (9.0 x 6.3 cms) that will protect contactless cards within 10 cms radius from the skimming device. This then eliminates the need for multiple individual Card Defenders. Our price for this item is £3.00 each, plus postage. 

Please distribute this information to your neighbours, friends and family.
