For UK residents interested in anti-skimming products, we’d suggest making contact with RFID Protect. RFID Protect is a British-based company, and one that offers a full range of RFID shielding kit, much of which can be custom manufactured to carry a client’s branding.
There’s also an added benefit; this being RFID Protects’ work with law enforcement specialists both in the UK and overseas – their shared goal being to raise awareness about RFID skimming, and help people keep their personal data secure.
