    Hi, All:

    Sorry if this is not the right forum.

    I was just reading that the information in one's wallet can be stolen using an

    RFID scanner. Also, metal , aluminum supposedly can be used to protect, i.e.,

    I assume, block the signal from coming into the wallet. Is this all correct?
