YES!
One of my cards has RFID but it is safe inside my aluminum push-button wallet. Yes, if you chose to keep it, keep it safe.
If you have no intentions of swinging your arm-snip it off or microwave it.
It is real.
Paypal is the safest way to go nowdays if your purchasing on the net.A "Smart" phone for purchases is dangerous, why I say use Paypal. They email you every transaction in 5 minutes tops.
Your covered by your issuing bank for fraud-(ROTFLMAO!)RFID..might take a month. My answer? Don't let it be read. You CAN request a card without it.

Thanks, Norman, for the reasoned and informed response.

Conspiracy theorists need not post, thank you. I'm wrapping my credit cards in aluminum foil; or maybe I should use lead (worked for Superman). And how about those transponders on your driver's license or TWIC?

DON"T USE LEAD. In your front pocket.:D
Don't use lead for your RFID card either.

Kinda off-topic - but I'll toss it out here anyway. If you lose your card, please notify the card company right away. I mean immediately. Why?

A customer of mine makes many sales of electronic parts on credit cards. He sold $6,000 worth on a CC, got the code, etc, got it approved by the bank & since everything checked out fine, he shipped the parts. 2 days later the card was reported stolen. The real owner of the card never got charged - we've all seen the ads. The reason he never did is that the CC company went right into my customer's bank account & withdrew the $6,000. Yes, they (according to merchant contracts) have that right. Why would someone buy chips with a stolen CC? Near as he could figure out, they went overseas - as when the police checked the address the parts were shipped to, no one was there.

So - protect the folks you buy from!

Why not?

Makes it harder to get the lead out?

Something like that anyway. Oh wait, I've got it - it's heavy & it'll make your pants fall down.

Makes it harder to get the lead out?Yes, it effect's your nerve ending's. Very dangerous. Sweating absorbe's it into your nerves and bone-R.

You can try to envelope the lead in aluminum. Let me know how that works.
Put the aluminum BEFORE the lead. JMHO.:)

You'll be fine.
