E-THEFT: WHAT IS THAT?
E-THEFT (ELECTRONIC PICK POCKETING) IS WHEN YOUR CREDIT CARD OR PASSPORT INFORMATION ARE READ AND MISUSED WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE.
Your contactless credit card and passport has a built-in radio transmitter – that’s why they’re so easy to use. Card information is not protected and can easily be read.
E-Thieves equipped with a scanner or similar can easily and unnoticed access your card information.
The e-theft can happen right next to you or up to several feet away.
