Insuring International ATM Card Security

International-ATM-Card-SecurityMany of us have heard the recent extremely troubling stories about the theft of credit card information this past holiday season:

  • "Hackers Steal 110 Million Target Customer Credit Card Numbers, Along with the Cardholders' Personal Information."
  • "Luxury Store Neiman Marcus Also Struck During Holiday Credit Card Attacks."

Instead of starting off with small charges that would likely go unnoticed, especially by wealthy, upper middle class and middle class shoppers, these hackers were bold, making these two of the largest hacks in history.

Anonymous Debit Cards are Largely Unaffected by New International Banking Laws

Anon-Debit-CardsAccording to recent reports, the FATCA Tax Evasion Reform measures are starting to take effect. In essence, many US citizens are having a hard time opening bank accounts in other countries because the US Federal Government is cracking down on tax evaders. These laws, (enacted in 2010, now enforced in 2014), also affect international insurance companies as well as hedge funds.

In addition, some banks have even closed bank accounts belonging to US citizens. This is mainly because the banks face heavy penalties if they don't comply with these mandates. Therefore, in many cases, the banks decide it's easier to just completely ignore American clients and their needs.

The Perfect Anonymous Debit Card for World Travelers

businessmanTo many people the American Express Gold card is the holy grail of credit cards. First and foremost it is a status symbol, declaring that "you've arrived." Second, the concept of unlimited daily spending is appealing and one can imagine being able to purchase just about anything, on a whim.

Unfortunately, in the case of AMEX and most other bank cards, nothing could be further from the truth. The so called unlimited spending limit is really an average of your day to day usage. Try to purchase anything outside of your average and at best it will require phone calls, at worst it will be declined.

An Anonymous Debit Card Helps Protect Your Right To Privacy

privacyEven the most cursory glance at the world around us quickly reveals the extent to which technology has impacted virtually every area of our lives. The most intimate parts of our lives are subject to the presence of a variety of technological devices and processes. As a result, much of the freedom that we believe we enjoy comes ever closer to becoming little more than an illusion.

The same governments that tout the inalienable rights of its citizens to privacy on the one hand, barely put forth the effort to conceal their undeniable invasion of that very privacy on the other. However, the connection between technology and the invasion of our individual privacy also provides the means for its protection.
