There is a scam trying to scare people into believing that contactless cards are less secure than a chip card. This scam offers a “free” sleeve to put your contactless cards into to “protect” your card. This scam offers the sleeve for “free” but charges a $17 – $40 shipping/handling fee. Please remember that your contactless card does not transmit your card number or account information. It transmits a transaction token number, a few millimeters, to the tap-to-pay device at the time of purchase, and only at the time you are using it. This code changes every time you use the card. Don’t fall for the scam. Your contactless card has the same security features as your chip card and offers a more convenient way to pay.
