Make Your Own "Skim Guard" Card ...It could save you Hundreds if not thousands of dollars !

Make your own skim guard card for a few cents..I've been planing to do this blog for many months. finally its here...I keep seeing them selling skim guard cards on the shopping show and they are selling them 2 for $50 plus $10 postage. I say save your money and make your own..So many people these days are getting skimmed a friend of mine got skimmed just recently its a pretty scary thought, that people can just walk past you with a skimmer and you wouldn't even know it ...until you check your bank account and find money has disappeared from your account and it could be months before your bank refunds you the money or you could be on holiday, what  a disaster that would be ...Any way back to making your own.This is how I made mine, I just used an old plastic card the same size as my credit card and covered it with aluminum foil and you place it in your wallet or purse next to your credit cards and it stops any one skimming your card ..too easy ...I tested it out when we went shopping just to make sure it worked, I held my card on either side of the foil card and it blocked all my information...So I just wanted to share this with you all....

  1. This is genius.. So do you need to make a foil card for the front and the back and put your credit card in between? Thanks for posting..

    1. Hi Cindy, you only need one as long as your credit or other cards are next to it...

  2. I made my last wallet and it's definitely showing it's wear. I'm wondering if I used "Insul-bright" as the batting if it would do the same as your foil since Insul-bright has a reflective aspect to it. What do you think?

    1. Hi LJ I don't know the answer to your question however my suggestion is check it out when you use the EFTPOS machine. ..that's what I did to make sure the foil really worked..
