These are exactly the reason why I've just bought a skim guard device to prevent being 'skimmed' without me knowing. ... contactless technology is a criminals paradise!... good price though!

I'd put your thinking cap on! I know very many people who have had their cards skimmed and it is getting worse. How long before cards start being cloned due to certain data being stripped as a transfer is made....the banks might say it's impossible, I think we all know if there's a will, there's a way!
Let's get this straight, shall we?

I have 3 card readers, (iZettle, Payleven (now SumUp) and PayPal Here), for use in my daily job.

Firstly, to use these, you have to have a verified address and a verified bank, (which in turn will already have a verified address.) You have a credit check done, for Anti-money laundering purposes. NO money can be withdrawn from any of these readers unless you have a verified bank account.

Now, your point. "Skimmers".

Firstly, you cannot simply go up to someone and tap them and voila £30. You have to use software. Software which takes individual identification markers, from your reader, your mobile device and location. This includes, but is not limited to, your phone number, phone serial umber and any other ID they wish to get for safety purposes.

If anyone were to try to "skim" people, as you seem to think they do, they would be caught easily, through all the aforementioned security information collected above.

Do not believe everything you read on Facebook.

And your quote "I know very many people who have had their cards skimmed and it is getting worse."
I'm calling bull crap on this statement!

Like I said, I use these readers, day in, day out, as a cabbie, and have done for over 2 years, and not ONCE has any of my customers have shown any concerns when using them, nor have they ever mentioned anything about knowing one person, let alone "very many people" having their cards skimmed by this type of device.

If these devices were such as problem, as you seem to think, then the banking system would not even allow thier usage, nor would Mastercard, Amex, Visa and any other card issuers!

My partners boyfriend was one such person who had multiples of £7 taken from his bank card while in a queue to a music event. When he reported it to the police they said they were seeing very many reports of this sort of very low level fraud but heck. if it hasn't happened to you, then why consider the reality?
That's why I live on high ground, tin hat time whenever they talk about climate change.

Contactless cards are being skimmed every second in the USA...software is available easily enough through dark websites ( not Google! ) and this type of crime will become so common in the next few weeks /months, that you will look back on your comments with shame.
