RFID SKIMMING? 4 OPTIONS TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM BEING PICK POCKETED REMOTELY

 Unfortunately, as society as technology

increases, the ways of hacking it also

increases. Radio Frequency Identification

(RFID) Skimming has affected all of us

directly or indirectly. I myself have seen

$500.00 suddenly disappear from my account,

in my “forced” introduction to Skimming.

The idea that someone could actually “pick”

your “pocket” without touching you is a very

disturbing idea. Some cases have shown that

this can be done from a distance of at least

24 yards away. Although, this can be a threat

anytime anywhere and you should address it

regardless because everyone is a target.

All holiday shoppers, tourists, and vacationers

are soft targets. Below I will present to you

4 options for protecting yourself.

1. ALUMINUM FOIL

This may sound funny or cliché however,

Aluminum Foil, 15mic

aluminum foil actually, does a good job

blocking RFID readers. There are three

problems with aluminum foil, 1) it needs to

be thick or else it will not work well 2) it wears

out quickly decreasing it’s effectiveness,

3) it may be a little impractical to unwrap

and re-wrap your cards every-time you use

them. It may not be the most practical

solution but it can work.

2. RFID Blocking Sleeve Anti Theft 4 Credit Card & 2 Passport Holder Wallet Pocket $3.99 

These are a very practical low cost solution to the problem.

This is the one I personally use (The Black One)

4. RFID Blocking Credit Card Holder Genuine Leather – Slim & Thin 8 Card Slots RFID Credit Card Holder for Women and Men – Minimalist Front Pocket Wallet Design Protects All Credit, ID Cards (RED) $12.99

This option is for male and female and is my personal choice I have the black version.

Dante Women's RFID Blocking Real Leather Zip Around Wallet Clutch Large Travel Purse Wristlet(Large Size Pebble Red)

3. Dante Women’s RFID Blocking Real Leather Zip Around Wallet Clutch Large Travel Purse Wristlet $26.99

An obvious choice for the ladies who have a “Rolodex” of cards.

I hope this article has enlightened and equipped you Godspeed in your

pursuit of safety and awareness.

HOW CRIMINALS ARE TARGETING ID’S HANGING FROM LANYARDS

 

 

It has recently come to my attention

that criminals are actually committing

identity theft by taking pictures of

identifications cards hanging from

lanyards. School and work are the

two main ways in which we may be

required to wear an ID badge well,

those times are now being exploited.

What’s the answer? Well, I could tell

you to simply turn your badge around,

however, your employer would probably

not be pleased with that. If you are a student

you can probably get away with it. I could

also tell you to have only your first initial

and last name or vice versa. Once again your

employer may require first and last name. I

could also suggest placing it in your wallet

or pocket, as a student this may be permissible,

as for your job I sincerely doubt it. Truly, I do

not have a clear cut answer to give you on this

one. Having a 360 degree awareness

of this problem is the first step.

The next step would be to advise those in charge

at your place of employment or school. So, with

that being said, continue to increase your knowledge

about the threats in this life so that you can protect

yourself and family.

12 STEPS FOR PREVENTING RAPES/SEXUAL ASSAULTS

 

1.Be aware that most rapes are committed by someone the victim knows.

2.  Be aware of your surroundings

3. Due to my knowledge about the dark things that happen, and the types of individuals that frequent them I ADVISE AGAINST going to clubs. However, if you must go be sure to:

A. Stick with friends

B. Drink responsibly

C. Never leave your drink unattended

4. If someone is making unwanted advances in any setting DO NOT feel any remorse in telling them to back off! Many predators will use the familiarity of a club, party, or a work setting to try and work on you. You are well within your rights to tell them NO in a firm manner. If they decide that you are the “B word” then they are not a good person to interact with anyway.

5. DO NOT broadcast your plans on the internet or social media, remember “most sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows”.

Be very, very, careful about meeting up with people you meet online. I advise against it.

6. Be careful about texting or surfing on your phone or listening to your ipod out alone, these two items limit your sight and your hearing. Remember, predators prefer easy targets, a person not looking or listening makes an easy target.

7. If you are out anywhere alone do not simply stroll, walk with a purpose and get to where you are going.

8. If you notice you are being followed make eye contact with the perpetrator, it may feel uncomfortable but it may keep you safe.

9. I encourage everyone to invest in their personal safety either by a safety device like a stun gun, pepper spray, knife, or martial arts like my system Shu Ha Ri Do.

10. When you are entering your home, scan your surroundings. Look at the front and sides of your house, the front windows and the door. Make sure you have everything ready to go in do not linger at the side of your car, do not fumble around for your keys, have them ready.

11. When you enter your home repeat step 9, scan the area, listen for any unfamiliar sounds in your house. Always be ready to defend yourself no matter what. This is not a about fear it’s about a prepared mindset!

12. Once you are safely in your home and comfortable. Please be mindful not to have your blinds or curtains wide open at night time or in a fashion where a predator can peep in on you. If you like to have your blinds and curtains open during the day you should make yourself aware of what that looks like from the outside. Make sure you are aware of what the view into your house looks like during the day. When you close your curtains or blinds for the night also be sure that there are no cracks or openings. Be aware, that a predator like a Peeping Tom, can work himself up into such a frenzy by watching you in your private moments that he will become determined to attack at the first opportunity. In many cases it is a neighbor.

This is a list of 12 key areas I think you should make part of your permanent memory. However, there is much more to know. Feel free to browse my book “The Awareness Formula” available at amazon.com. 

Although the cover shows a school bus, this book covers all areas of family safety!

A SAFETY CHECKLIST FOR FAMILIES THAT KEEPS IT REAL

To begin, ask yourself this question…

In a world where when you least expect it danger can be right around the corner. Why on earth, would this be a good idea?

Ask yourself two more questions about the above picture .

  1. “How does a predator see this”
  2. “What opportunities does it create for him/her”

color black eyelash human body face criminal nose iris eye head organ crime evil sin wrong visor crime scene outrage sense assassination attempt offence misstep crosshair wickedness transgression iniquity

You see, pop culture or more specifically “popular culture” can start an action that becomes a trend or a style. Once that happens the masses copy without a second thought.  Whatever you do in this world you must always think, “safety first”. You must think of it like this…

The action may seem innocent, cool, trendy, fun, stylish, and everyone is doing it but, the question is, does it make you or your family vulnerable in any way?

If you look at everything this way then threats are neutralized and regret or guilt for the result is not a factor. The world is not our personal playground although we can have fun, we have a responsibility to ourselves and our family. The bumper sticker above is not the only popular trend that so many have copied without thinking, it is a part of a bigger problem in the minds of people.

HERE ARE SOME AREAS YOU SHOULD EXAMINE TO FIX THE PROBLEM…

  1. Examine your daily routine and see if there are any areas where you have adopted an action as part of your routine but you don’t have a good reason for doing it.
  2. Examples of a routine include when you leave or come back to your home
  3. Personal vehicle or public transportation?
  4. Places you stop along the way to your destination
  5. Parking lot or parking garage?
  6. Who you talk with on the way?
  7. Where do you go for fun?
  8. What do you consider fun?
  9. Do you drink often?
  10. Do you get drunk?
  11. Do you use drugs?
  12. Your home activities
  13. Do you have neighbors over?
  14. If so, do you have a good reason for having them in your most private and vulnerable space.
  15. Do you leave your curtains or blinds open, and how late before you close them?
  16. Finally, if you can identify any parts of those areas where your actions make you or your family vulnerable then you should change that routine, period!

The list above sheds light on the main areas that people establish routines in their lives. Much of it is copied behavior and from my knowledge of the criminal and opportunistic mind, there are many vulnerabilities that could be exploited. Some parts of the list are obviously risky. If those things are a part of your life, be honest with yourself. Seek help if necessary but be honest for the sake of your safety and those you love. With that being said I encourage everyone to simply examine their days to minimize opportunities that a predator might exploit. These concepts are woven into my martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do. My teachings are for the total man and woman. Mind, body, and spirit, and self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. They are covered in depth in all of my books. For more information on this subject I encourage everyone to review my book “THE AWARENESS FORMULA”. Although, the cover shows children boarding a school bus, the book is not just for children. Within The Awareness Formula are profound concepts for adults, mothers, fathers, etc. Image result for the awareness formula

BEWARE OF THE WEB WEAVER

Can you see better than a fly?

Meditate for a second on the incredible vision of a fly. 

A fly’s eye is made up  of what are called ommatidia

which are basically photo receptors that provide the fly with visual information about it’s environment. The average fly has more than 3300 ommatidia. Each ommatidia is like an eye unto itself. So in summary, what a fly sees is reproduced more than 3300 times. A fly’s vision is incredible.  So, here’s the question, if the fly could see the spiders web 

would he still get caught in it? With all that eye power why didn’t it see the web? Perhaps, the answer is because the spider is good at what he does. 

What are the webs woven around your life?

Can you see them at all?

Realize that the “spider” is good at what he does.

 If you ever were caught, and freed yourself from the “web” would you fly in that direction again? If so what could possibly entice you to continue the same self destructive flight pattern? What could be worth entrapping yourself again? If you did happen to free yourself be aware that you only barely escaped the web weaver. 

One mindset you must adopt in order to embrace the Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior’s Code is to learn how not to victimize your own self.

SAFETY IN SCHOOLS…

THE ISSUE OF SAFETY IN OUR SCHOOLS…

SCHOOL SHOOTER NICHOLAS CRUZ

In the wake of the latest school shooting are left many grieving families, of

which I send my heart felt condolences. Truly, we live in a world where it is

hard to identify real threats, separate fact from fiction, or genuineness,

from agenda. So as we examine how this happened, why this happened, will

it happen again, and how we “act” after a “crisis” I propose embracing and

teaching as much wisdom to our children as possible.  Clearly, schools are

becoming a place of  high anxiety for children and parents.  I write this

today as an encouragement to all parents, that we are not powerless in this.

We have options. Perhaps home schooling for some, or private schools for

those who are capable. For so many of us neither of those are options.

What’s left?

Collective wisdom among students. Household to household I encourage

every parent to launch a focused campaign to teach their children even

better interpersonal skills, how to watch for signs of mental or emotional

distress among their fellow students, never to bully, or verbally abuse

classmates, and to advise teachers, counselors, and  principals, when they

observe any of those things. It is unfortunate that this has become the

climate. However,

adjustments must be made, and a big part of my philosophy is the

best way to deal with anxiety is to attack what you have control over.

Teaching and preparing our children is something we always have control

over.  I have written a tremendous amount about this subject in my book

THE AWARENESS FORMULA

I encourage everyone to get a copy of this book not just because I wrote it

but because what’s in it is information I have used to keep my family,

friends, and students safe.  My philosophy is unique, filled with profound

truths. To see several examples of this simply browse my post archives.

There is so much vital information in this book dealing with safety on every

level, work, home, vacationing, social media  and so much that will surprise

you because you have never considered it… Thanks for reading I pray for

safety and security for you  and your family.
