The classic "American flag" MYNE CARD
A Myne Card will prevent your contactless card details being taken without your consent, as long as you follow the instructions:
1. Place the Myne Card in your wallet or purse
2. Keep your contactless cards close to the Myne Card, within 5cm is best
Myne Cards are specifically designed to block fraudsters card readers, so the only time your contactless card is read is when you want to be.
What is contactless?
Contactless means that you can just touch your bank card against a card till and payment is made. They are great as:
It saves time and is easier to use than chip & pin and mobile wallets (eg Apple/Android Pay) It takes just a couple of seconds for a contactless till to read your card They have a payment limit of up to £30 in UK
Risks of contactless:
You may not have asked for the contactless feature or may not be aware of the risks of these new cards, so briefly: You may have seen posts on the news or social media where fraudsters and consumer rights groups have easily read the info on a contactless card and then used those details to make purchases - even a £1,000 TV has been bought using just the details taken from a contactless card. Contactless card readers (and phone apps!) are easily available to fraudsters and they can read contactless cards through bags/coats/wallets etc, so a crowded area, for example, is prime for fraudsters, with no pick-pocketing needed!
Myne Cards use the latest RFID blocker technology, so even your latest bank cards are protected.
