Radio Frequency Identification

Whether you are buying groceries, gas or dinner-to-go. now you can just wave your card and you're on your way. It's the latest technology in millions of debit and credit cards, thanks to a tiny chip hidden inside.

There's something else you should know.

Your credit card might not be as safe as you think it is. You won't believe how easy it is for someone to put together a simple remote reader and get all your information without a touch or a sound.

Watch it in action at the Indianapolis airport.

Watch the hacker, with permission, intercept the credit card information right off the radio chip inside the card. Wow, that's scary...and it is!

Electronic pick pocketing.

Rather than stealing the wallet or purse and taking the credit card, a fraudster can use an inexpensive remote scanner to.get everything they need off the card without touching you. "I heard about this, but I did not think I had one of those cards."

Do you have one of these cards?

Here's what to look for. If your card says PayPass, PayWave or Blink, or if your card has a "wave" symbol, or a embedded chip, you have the new contactless RFID or EMV smart card. Don't assume you're'll probably be wrong. Watch the proof!

GarbleCard® Solution.

GarbleCard® is the only patented (US-2014-0374488-A1) credit card sized device which employs the technology of Emissions Security (“EmSec”), aka TEMPEST which is strategically deployed by NSA, DOD and NATO, world–wide, to shield/deTune RFID and EMV (Europass, MasterCard, Visa) chipped contactless smart cards from fraudulent scanning.


With devices that can be purchased on the internet or in a local electronics store for less than $50, hackers can remotely, in close proximity, read your credit cards and capture the number, expiration date, and the one-time CVV number used to authenticate transactions. Read more.

October 1st, 2015 Deadline

The Scam

The fraudster simply gets close to the intended victim with an RFID reader, quietly and invisibly captures the RFID signal through material like a leather wallet or cloth pants, reading a card in a purse or back pocket without even touching the victim.

About us

Kevin Bartczak and Andy Biro live in the tech-rich city of Melbourne, Florida, just minutes from the Kennedy Space complex, Florida Institute of Technology and the University of Central Florida. This area, known as the Space Coast, is home to some of the best and brightest technology experts. Kevin and Andy were frustrated with how the escalating fraud levels, with credit and debit card use, are impacting the average everyday hard working people of America. Almost without exception, nearly every one thought identity theft and credit card fraud would never happen to them.

Our Goal: "To design and mass produce an inexpensive product and make it available to everybody who enjoys the convenience of using the new EMV contactless cards without the risk of having their identity and personal information stolen."

It took in-depth experimentation, testing and consulting with specialists to engineer for mass production this affordable, effective and reliable product to protect everyone. We started with countless hours of testing and debugging. We applied for and secured patent and trademark protection. And then came the biggest challenge, finding partners having the ability to mass produce and deliver Garblecards® without compromising the technology within the card. There are no batteries to change, it fits neatly into a wallet, purse, pocket or passport, it's waterproof and sturdy. With the help of three world-class EMV/RFID, NFC, adhesive and card manufacturers, we've managed to produce a simple cost-effective solution. The quality, engineering and workmanship is apparent the moment you take hold of a card.

Wikipedia defines!

For added protection, sandwich your EMV contactless credit/debit, ID cards or driver license between two GarbleCards.

From where are GarbleCards® shipped?

Melbourne, Forida, USA

Where should I keep the GarbleCard®?

Place GarbleCard® with your contactless cards, driver license or passport. For extra protection, sandwich credit and debit cards between two GarbleCards.

Will airport scanners/X-ray affect the card?

GarbleCard® is not effected by any external signals from X ray machines. There are no batteries or power sources to degredate. It's a passive device. It may show up on a body scan.

Why do I get a pair of GarbleCard®?

When you remove a contactles card from a wallet or purse to use it, or carry it solo, hold the second GarbleCard® together with it for on-the-go protection. Partially uncover it momentarily when you swipe the card reader.

Will GarbleCard® deactivate a motel key card?

No. GarbleCard® emits no signals, emissions or transmissions. IT is a passive device.

Does GarbleCard® protect more than one card?

If GarbleCard® is placed between one or multiple cards and the reader, all cards behind GarbleCard® are protected. If GarbleCard® is behind the multiple cards, it will only protect the card next to it.

Can I fry my RFID chip and be safe?

The simple answer is NO. However, if you want to try, it's a matter of timing the burn. I have read there are people who have successfully used a microwave oven to fry the RFID chip, (3 seconds is the limit) but they say you have to time it perfectly or you just melt and destroy the card.
We have not tried this method and do not recommend it for obvious reasons. It’s simpler to ask your credit card company to send you a traditional magnetic stripe card, or protect it with a good RFID shield.

Hard evidence that RFID hacking is a problem is hard to find. Is it really a threat?

For years YouTube has brought us funny, informative and lengthy videos of RFID hacking. So why don’t more people know the risks? One of the reasons is that the victim doesn’t even know it’s happened. If the RFID card skimming is successful, there is no sound, trace or touch, it just happens. When the victim discovers the credit card has been hacked, they don’t even think RFID skimming as a possibility. Why isn't RFID skimming happening all the time? No one seems sure that it's not happening all the time. But, as more and more FRID cards are issued by Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, more people are potentially at risk. At some point, as the number of Smarcards in the field increases, there will be examples of this activity and people will take notice. Watch this YouTube video, Cloning RFID tages in Sacramento.
This University of Central Florida video research project shows how easy it is to hack an RFID card.
BBtw put this video together 5 years ago and what they show is still happening today.
The short answer is, if you don’t think it’s a threat, you will. Without some kind of protection, every Smartcard in every wallet or purse is at risk. How much is it worth to get some protection. That’s what people need to be thinking.

Did you know that over a billion RFID cards will be in circulation by 2014?

The warnings that new Smartcards are replacing the traditional magnetic stripe cards have been sounding for years. The Smart Card Alliance reports that, “according to Eurosmart, over 6.1 billion smart cards were shipped worldwide in 2011, to grow 13% to 6.9 billion in 2012. Smart cards are currently used worldwide for many applications, including healthcare, financial, transit, telecommunications, and secure identification. Uses most common in the United States include - The U.S. Federal Government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card being issued by all Federal agencies for employees and contractors; the ePassport being issued by the Department of State; and Payment cards and devices being issued by American Express, Discover Network, MasterCard and Visa. – see This Tyler Texas NBC TV news report shows the dangers of RFID credit cards.

Find out if your credit card has an RFID chip?

To find out whether a credit card has an RFID chip, you can look at the card to tell if it does or does not. If you see the marked symbol on the image below, it is supporting RFID. Also, if the card says PayPass, payWave or blink, it also has RFID capabilities.
Not all RFID cards are identifiable as such, don't take chances.

Will GarbleCard® protect my RFID Passport?

Just placing GarbleCard® within the pages of your passport protects it from RFID skimming. When you remove GarbleCard®, the passport works perfectly.
