Getting your card swiped but keeping your wallet

Over dinner Friday, a friend noted how she would never carry a “swipe-able” credit card in her purse (I didn’t start that conversation, thanks). “Anyone with a handheld scanner could run around the mall, waving it around near purses and “mens’ backsides” and grab a ton of credit card information, then go shopping themselves.”

It seems researchers have the same idea.

Hell, who needs researchers anyway. This gal just, last week, discovered eBay.

UPDATE: Techdirt says this is crying wolf. I won’t be getting one myself anyway.
