You could be at risk for credit card theft and not even know it. We have gone beyond the days when credit card theft involved someone nabbing your purse off your shoulder or someone slyly pickpocketing your wallet. Although these types of robberies still exist (along with several others), a sophisticated version of credit card theft is on the rise and you could be at risk.
Thanks to advanced technology designed to make shopping with our credit cards faster and more convenient, your credit card information can now be easily duplicated by thieves who never actually come into contact with any of your credit cards. As long as they come into close range, they can steal your information and duplicate it on the spot, making purchases under your name just minutes later.
If you’ve never heard of this before, watch this video to learn how this version of credit card theft works and what you can do to prevent it from happening to you.
