Hi tech thievery

The downside of the hi tech world is that there are also hi tech ways for savvy criminals to steal your hard earned money and even your identity. If you're often online, you've probably heard of phishing emails to get your personal information. A healthy dose of mistrust over suspicious emails could easily counter such, but now there are even more ways for hi tech criminals to steal from you. I recently watched a show where a girl casually strolling walking down the streets is holding some gadget which actually scans and gets the information from the credit cards of the people she passes. Later, she goes and haves a shopping spree! Scary. Maybe we should be thinking about getting rfid blocking wallets. Hmmm.
