3 Things You Need to Know If You Keep Losing Your Wallet
It doesn’t make sense that the easiest thing to lose is also the worst thing to lose. Wallets contain your most important information and valuables – from your credit card and banking information to your hard-earned cash and identity. Unfortunately, thousands of people lose their wallets every day, and only 1 in 5 of them are returned to their rightful owner. In other words, your chances of losing your carbon fiber wallet at least once in your lifetime are high and you likely won’t get it back either. It isn’t all bad news though, as we’ve created to help keep your wallet and essentials safe.
Stuff Your Wallet With Cash
With the risk of losing your wallet and not getting it back being so high, you’re likely wondering why you would ever fill it with cash. At least with a debit card and credit card, anyone who uses it is likely to be tracked and even caught. With cash, there’s no way to trace that. However, studies show that people are more likely to return a wallet if there’s money in it. A team of researchers dropped over 17,000 wallets across 40 different countries. In each country, people were more likely to report it. In fact, “adding the equivalent of $13.45 in U.S. dollars to the wallet, as opposed to no money, increased the likelihood of return from 40 percent to 51 percent. And when wallets contained nearly $100, the rate of return increased to 72 percent.”
So, put some cash in your carbon fiber wallet if you keep losing it. You’re more likely to get it returned to you.
Make Sure To Add Family Photos
Another easy way to ensure your slim carbon fiber mens wallet gets returned to you if you lose it is to include photos of your family. One study found that baby pictures dramatically increased the return rate of stolen or lost wallets. It’s believed that the baby photos bring out an emotional response that encourages people to make the right choice and get it back to the rightful owner. So, whether you have little ones yourself or have to add in a fake baby photo, this is an excellent trick to have in your back pocket if you keep losing your wallet. Pardon the pun.
Better yet, make sure your carbon fiber wallet has an I.D. window and put the baby picture in there. That way, when someone finds your lost wallet, it’s the first thing they’ll see.
Protect Yourself From Electronic Pickpocketing
Even if you manage to keep your wallet in your possession, it doesn’t necessarily mean your information is safe and secure. Electronic pickpocketing is a growing occurrence with over 400,000 pickpocketing incidents happening each day across the globe. The worst part is that it’s easy for thieves to do, as they just have to scan your pocket and your information is theirs.
Fortunately, the way to prevent being electronically pickpocketed is just as easy. All you need is an RFID wallet and it will automatically block any scans or transactions going through the fabric. All of our carbon fiber slim mens wallets are made with RFID technology, so you get the best of all worlds and protection.
With these simple steps, you can increase your chances of having your lost wallet returned to you and to keep your data and valuables safe. Shop Cold Fire today for RFID wallets for men and women, as well as tactical accessories for optimal protection.
