Warning: You Could Be Electronically Pickpocketed

With a credit card reader that costs less than $100 online, anybody can remotely view anybody else’s credit card number & expiration dates, due to Radio Frequency Chips (RFID) embedded within some credit cards and passports.

A seasoned pro could pull thousands of these numbers from a large crowd and instantly have the data emailed to a distant computer. In some cases, even names could be swiped.

If your credit card has a symbol similar to an “RSS Feed” icon printed anywhere on it (the actual icon is displayed in the clip ), it may well be vulnerable to this kind of crime, if you do not have a radio shielding sleeve or wallet to protect it from this kind of scanning.

Although no crimes of this nature have yet been reported, it’s quite possible that the anonymous nature of this crime that has allowed it to elude identification as such.

Ashraf Ezzat is an Egyptian born in Cairo and based in Alexandria. He graduated from the faculty of Medicine at Alexandria University. Keen not to be entirely consumed by the medical profession, Dr. Ezzat invests a lot of his time in research and writing. History of the ancient Near East and of Ancient Egypt has long been an area of special interest to him. In his writings, he approaches ancient history not as some tales from the remote times but as a causative factor in our existing life; and to him, it's as relevant and vibrant as the current moment. In his research and writings, Dr. Ezzat is always on a quest trying to find out why the ancient wisdom had been obstructed and ancient spirituality diminished whereas the Judeo-Christian teachings and faith took hold and prospered. Dr. Ezzat has written extensively in Arabic tackling many issues and topics in the field of Egyptology and comparative religion. He is the author of Egypt knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites. He writes regularly at many well-known online websites such as Dissident Voice and What Really Happened. Dr. Ezzat is also an independent filmmaker. His debut film was back in 2011 The Annals of Egypt Revolution and in 2012 he made Tale of Osiris a short animation for children. In 2013 his short The Pyramids: story of creation was screened at many international film festivals in Europe. And he is working now on his first documentary "Egypt knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites".
