 Withdraw money without asking for a pin

  Recently in India, police arrested some people who used to take money from a Wi-Fi credit or debit card near a POS (point of sale) machine. While the card holder had his card in his pocket. They did not need a PIN.

 How Wi-Fi Enabled Card Works

  You should know that this type of card is also called contactless card. The amount of up to Rs 2000 can be withdrawn through a POS machine even without using a PIN through such a card. This machine can be withdrawn by touching it with a card placed in your pocket. The range of such cards is up to 4 cm.
  Such cards operate on NFC (Near Field Communication) and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). These cards have a chip, which is attached to a very fine metal antenna. Through this antenna, the POS machine receives the signal and the same antenna gets power from the POS machine through the radio frequency field. Therefore, as soon as the card comes in the range of the machine, the money is easily withdrawn without a pin.

 How to protect

 Now if this type of card is also yours, then do not give the card in the hands of the shopkeeper while making payment in any hotel or shop. Always have the swap in front of you and check the message after the payment at the same place. You can wrap your card in aluminum foil paper or use a metal wallet. If you want, you can also buy RFID blocking wallet in the market.
