I have not watched TV for a long long time, I am talking about years, discounting the occasional accidental tune-in while flipping through the TV input options trying to connect my iPad Mini to the Apple TV to listen to music while working out. For great sound quality, I have my TV connected to the 5.1 home theater system. Anyway, when I was flipping through the TV inputs yesterday, the TV option stayed long enough and it’s the news hours, so I just decided to watch it in part to learn more about the propositions I will vote on in the coming election. Anyway, as usual, I found most of the news items boring but find this one rather interesting: American’s Biggest Fear.
According to the source from Chapman University, here are the top 10 American’s Biggest Fears:
- 60.6% – Corrupt Government Officials
- 41% – Terrorist Attack
- 39.9% – Not Having Enough Money for the Future
- 38.5% – Terrorism
- 38.5% – Government Restrictions on Firearms/Ammunition
- 38.1% – People I Love Dying
- 37.5% – Economic/Financial Collapse
- 35.9% – Identity Theft
- 35.9% – People I Love Becoming Seriously Ill
- 35.5% – The Affordable Health Care Act/Obamacare
There you have it. These are all legitimate fears we all face today and with such high percentage, I totally agree with the #1 fear. But I am a little suprised that Identity Theft made it to top 10 list. But judging from the horor stories of the identity theft victims of what they have to go through, I guess I shouldn’t be suprised. While sometimes, the occurrence of identity theft event is out of our control, such as the security breach on major banks, health insurance companies, retail stores…etc., or the latest Yahoo account compromise, but on the personal level there is something we can do to protect our identity and privacy. The one thing you can do is starting with changing your wallet to a one that’s capable of RFID blocking. I am sure you have found out already that most credit cards now come with a chip. Identity thieves equipped with special high-tech device can steal your credit card information when they get near you and scan your wallet or purse without you knowing what’s going on. You can do a search on Youtube and will find videos such as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49o91DvqQ7k.
And you guess it right on the money, our SOS EDC™ RFID blocking wallets will do the job of stopping the scanning if used properly. Our wallets are not only designed to stop electronic pickpocketing but also the physical pickpocketing. I have replaced my old leather wallet with the Compact RFID Blocking Anti-Theft Travel Passport Neck Pouch / Belt Wallet when I am wearing jeans or the Carbon Fiber Leather RFID Blocking Anti-theft Passport Wallet w/ Removable Chain when I am wearing dress pants. Now I don’t need to worry about my credit card information and the wallet itself got stolen. The protection these wallets provide is well worth the small investment you put in, this could be one of your smartest investment you will ever made. Trust me, you really don’t want to go through the ordeal of loseing your wallet or your identity got stolen and used in fraudulent / criminal activities.
So please CHECK THEM OUT and recommend to your friends. 🙂
