Just want to bring to the forefront some key credit card information. It's worth watching the entire video.
Mmmm ... lone6star, I been worried about this for some time. We have been getting most of our new cards (here in the UK) with the RFID chip included for quite a while. Both credit and debit. Getting a replacement card without the chip is not as easy as is implied in the clip. We have been assured that no transactions for more than £20 can be processed using the 'contactless' system but that says nothing about cloning. We do seem to be much tighter on using PINs to validate card purchases here, but I have noticed that a lot of stores/restaurants in the USA still use paper slips. I am still trying to get all of my cards replaced ... I make all purchases below £20 in cash, so the technology is of no use to me but just adds risk.
It is interesting to note that the hotel keycard used in the video was a Marriott Elite card?!
