Re: •••RFID Blocking Sleeves/Wallets CLAIMS•••

I don't have any cards with those chips yet.  Even the brand new debit card I just got doesn't have one. 

 

I probably won't buy anything special for them either.  And I know I definitely won't be pulling my cards out of tinfoil holders.

There are some among us that wish to keep their heads in the sand about what is going on in the world. Nothing will change their minds, until something unfortunately happens to them.

I agree too many swallow the kool aid it is the new American, this is not how this country stayed safe by running off the voice in the wilderness...

 

Thinking and doing ones own homework is hard it is easier to list to someone you hope might have merit....

Thanks for the posts
I had to leave because my cat got sick and had a
seizure and we were really worried.
We have a wonderful vet and we think everything's
ok but not sure.

It looks like there's no independent verification that any
of these blockers actually work.

But nobody's saying the problem isn't real or is a hoax
it's a real problem.

Thanks again!

That is true you have a point but they do do demonstrations when you don't it you are open to being scanned, and when they apply the RFID it is blocked....   And when I get my drivers license's the also put it in a sleeve to protect my information.

 

I am in the Canadian boarder so I have one of those like a passport, to make it easy to travel back and forth.

Sincere prayers for your cat so much of our pet food comes from China and over the years there has been many issues with our pet;s health

 

have you looked into the Dinovite Products for your cat so much of the other stuff comes from China  http://www.dinovite.com/  they now have it for Cats.

Re: •••RFID Blocking Sleeves/Wallets CLAIMS•••

BOA customer service told us to use the aluminum foil technique.  They did not say the RFID was ineffective but that was the question my husband asked.  Their chip was developed manly for use in foreign countries.  When, we were in Scandinavia last year, many credit card payments were declined but we had the imbedded chip and a recent updated card and our transactions went through fine.  So maybe it depends on your financial institution and the type of chip??
