With the Rogue Vault, it's virtually impossible for a criminal to steal your wallet - either out of your pocket, or with more advanced identity theft tools.
Portland, ME (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
In the war against identity theft, consumers have a new weapon: the Rogue Vault wallet, offered by the Maine-based Rogue Wallet Company. The Rogue Vault wallet fights identity theft with an innovative, nearly theft-proof front pocket design and the latest in identity theft prevention technology: an ultra-thin layer of RFID blocking material. "This wallet should be everyone's first line of defense against identity theft," says product designer and company president Michael Lyons. "With the Rogue Vault, it's virtually impossible for a criminal to steal your wallet - either out of your pocket, or with more advanced identity theft tools."
The wallet is designed with a curved edge and a slim profile, so that it fits securely in one's front pocket and out of the reach of pickpockets. Additionally, with its RFID-wave blocking material, the Rogue Vault prevents high-tech identity thieves from surreptitiously stealing data with RFID scanners. RFID, or radio frequency identification, works by emitting radio waves that transmit the cardholder's information, thereby preventing the need to remove the card from one's wallet and swipe it through a card reader. However, as the cards cannot be turned off, criminals can exploit the technology with a hidden scanner to access their target's credit card information. With literally millions of RFID-enabled credit cards in the wallets and purses of consumers, the potential for exploitation is huge. The Rogue Vault is unique in its RFID-blocking ability, offering something no major wallet producers currently provide. It is available for purchase through http://www.roguewallet.com or by calling 1-800-969-8693.
