Don't be a Damsel in Distress...Protect Your Credit Cards!

What are things that you need to protect yourself?

How do you do these in your daily life?

The statics for how many people who are hurt, particularly women and kids, for assaults and so forth are there. They are in black and white. Your odds of having something happen to you, no matter how big or small, is significant enough that it needs to be taken seriously.

Sure, we can lobby, we can try to make new laws, but at the end of the day, if the laws were 100% effective, we wouldn't feel the need to lobby or make new laws in the first place. Get where I am going?

So it is important to protect yourself. In this series coming up, I will show you the benefits of different products I have had the pleasure of reviewing via Damsel in Defense Pro Keri Allan.

This is called the Hard Shelly. It is essentially a wallet that you can put up to 12 cards in.

It allows you to not have your information stolen from your credit cards or identification cards by installing the technology in the holder to block the signals that some use to steal your information. How is this possible you ask?

Remember how we were at one point were worried about someone who had your card in hand and swiping it before giving it back to you (not just at the place you were buying your product or food)? Now we are having to be worried about people carrying around devices that can swipe your information remotely. Especially with Real ID in place now and credit cards needing the chip to protect from identity theft, don't you think it is time we also take a protective stand ourselves?

If the companies who give us these cards think they have to take the extra mile to protect our identity, and they should, we need to do the same. Yes, it is a smart thing to do. We can sit here and argue all day that the companies are liable or that restuarant you went to last night is liable for the information stored from the credit card transactions. Or when you go to pick up diapers for your baby from Wal Mart, Target, Costco, where ever you go. This is one reason I am loving the chips on credit cards more.

Rodan and Fields Skin Care Line {Worth $195}

What is the chip on your credit card? It gives your credit card transaction it's own identification number. So rather than storing your credit card number and information, including your personal information, the store only has the information it needs to complete the transaction. Why the United States did not implement this earlier, I have no clue.

Explain how people can steal my information remotely...
If you are carrying your credit cards in your normal wallet, someone can literally walk past you with materials with the ability to snatch that information from your credit card without touching it! I did not know this before I reviewed this product and I was stunned (and greatful) to find this out. I thought they had to swipe your card to get your information...but no more!

Is it likely to happen? No, maybe not.

Do I want to take the chance? Um, no!

Do I really use this wallet on the daily? You bet I do!

I am so glad to have gotten this to try out and I love it! I still have my wallet for other things, like any money for gas, or library card, but anything with a strip goes into the Damsel in Defense wallet. It has the minute I got it and I feel SO much more about peace about protecting my information.

At the end of the day, it is not just about me. It is about protecting myself and my children!

I can stick it in the back pocket as I am walking if I want and yet it holds up to 12 cards. Can't beat that!

So go to her Keri's page and see for yourself and buy one. You won't regret it!
