Foil Identity Theft With Metal

The folks at Zippo think so, pointing to black market radio frequency ID chips that allows bad guys to use their smartphone s to read the magnetic strips on credit cards right through your wallet and clothes.
Zippo’s Metal Wallet is just that – a metal shield that keeps the radio waves at bay. We expected the wallet to be a bit too rigid for a back pocket, but at least from a backside’s point of view, it felt the same as leather. The Zippo is hinged and partially lined with a flexible polymer – all guaranteed for life. Available for about $50 at Zippo.com
