If you frequently travel to other countries, you should be aware of the identity theft threats that are present. As with credit cards, passports contain an RFID chip that can be scanned by criminals in order to gain access to your personal information. Fortunately, you can thwart these thieves’ attempts by using Identity Stronghold’s RFID blocking products for passports. The Secure Wallet Passport Express, for example, is a product that has RFID protected slots for a passport, credit cards, and identification cards. Another popular item, the Secure Sleeve, is an RFID-blocking sleeve that is designed to hold your passport safely. This sleeve is water-and-tear resistant, and can be custom printed with the design of your choice.

Identity theft occurs on a daily basis and threatens the financial wellbeing of numerous people around the globe. In the post below, we examine the most significant identity theft case in history, perpetrated by Amar Singh and Nehi Punjani-Singh.
This infamous identity theft case occurred between the months of July and September 2011, and was committed by husband and wife Amar Singh and Nehi Punjani-Singh, along with one hundred other people. According to information released in court, these individuals were part of an expansive criminal organization, of which Amar Singh was a major boss.
The way this criminal organization carried out its illicit activities was relatively simple. To steal other people’s identities, these criminals would obtain credit card information from various websites located on the internet and steal RFID data from customers using credit cards at stores. Afterwards, these individuals would make new credit cards with the information they had gathered and spend as much money as possible. In only a few months, Amar Singh and his organization stole and spent over $13 million dollars.
Charges and Aftermath
Before more damage could be done, Amar and Nehi Punjani Singh were arrested in September 2011 on identity theft charges. He was sentenced to over five years in prison and his wife was given a lesser sentence. Because of the extent of their crimes, the couple is considered by many to have masterminded the largest identity theft case in history. Now that they’re off the street, these individuals cannot hurt innocent people any longer—at least for the time being.
