There are a few manufacturers out there that manufacture
wallets and womens purses lined with metallic foil,
so all the contents are protected from interrogation.

You do NOT have to get that close to interrogate RFID chips.
Think "EZ-PASS" or other highway/turnpike payment systems.

Question......... is it true that RFID chips in passports and credit cards can be scanned and read by thieves walking past you?  If yes, how does one foil that activity beyond using foil?
thanks to you traveling contesters,
