Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I've never heard of this, but glad to know about it. Boy, thieves are smarter than the average bear, are they not? Wow! Thanks for the information.
35 plus years ago when we lived overseas in a high pickpocket area, we were told to carry our purses in front of us and if we are walking with someone to walk closely and have the purse on the side next to your walking companion. Guys were told to carry their wallets in their front pockets. And sometimes no matter what you do you still get robbed. One of my roommates when I was single had money stolen by a friend. We had a party and we knew everybody there. I hid my stuff under dirty laundry. She did not she just hung her purse in her closet.
Kinda scary, right. Will be anxious to read if the insul-bright works...let us know if you find out anymore.
My mom bought one of the metal wallets from a "As on TV" stores after she had someone steal her credit card information. Tin foil is supposed to work, but for $10, Mom has a neat wallet and doesn't have to fuss with the foil.

My SIL travels thru airports a lot for his work and had his 2 credit cards scanned by one of those machines. Not until the charges starting coming in did he realize what had happened. We now carry the aluminum wallets. Walmart carries them.
They say in this report tho it is possible it is highly unlikely
Never look down at anyone
Unless you are helping them up!!
About two yrs ago, they showed on the news how easy it was to get acct numbers.
They were walking down the crowded street in ny city and got a bunch of numbers.
Its a shame that someone always has to use technology for its worse.
