http://www.rfidprotect.co.uk/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.

Finally, if you’re in any doubt as to whether or not RFID skimming is a real threat, then perhaps watch the following video evidence.  In this video by UK broadcaster Channel 4 News, Thomas Cannon, of ViaForensics, demonstrates how an ‘electronic pickpocket’ can skim personal information remotely from RFID enabled bank cards using a smartphone application.
