Warning.....Symbol On Your Credit Card

Please check your cc. Who Knew - Now, you do.
This seems like it could be a potential problem...read on.

As I received it....

================================================== ========

Wi-Fi Symbol on your Credit Card

YOU WONT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING. WATCH VIDEO AND CHECK YOUR CARDS.
Check your newer credit cards for the Wi-Fi Symbol on it. You need to watch the video below to really know why I sent this to you.

I read this about a couple weeks ago, and then checked my cards for the little "Wi-Fi Signal Icon" on each one. I found none w/that signal on them, but I was determined to watch for it when my cards came in on renewals.

Well, yesterday I got my CHASE SLATE card AND THERE IT WAS! My first time to see it. I'll not activate that card after seeing this. I guess I'll go to the bank and see if I can replace it w/a non Wi-Fi (Radio Frequency Card).

Thought you ought to see this if you've not already seen this demo.

Thanks Bonnie.
It's getting more scary out there each day it seems. The very least the banks could do is tell us that this is on our credit card so we could opt out if we wanted.

thanks for the heads up. I don't have those on my Credit Cards, but I know here in CA, many times you have to show ID with a Credit Card, Your photo is on the Card and you have to show it, when purchase of gas at the pump, you have to enter your billing zip code for that card.

With that chip, I understand you have to enter a PIN number, the same as using a Debit Card. They did not mention that part in the video.
Of course the longer the PIN number, that harder to detect as with most after 3 failed attempts, it is blocked from use.

Never can be safe from FRAUD tho, the criminals are high tech these days.
