Mobile Pay Tag

BOA sent me a mobile pay tag today to put on back of my phone. Has anyone used these? They just don't seem real safe to me.

Personally I wouldn't touch it but I'm something of a luddite about such things.  Think the vast majority of these have historically been subject to some exploit or another, though I'm not certain it's really any more risky than simply swiping your card anyway in this day and age.   Fact is if someone wants to collect credit card numbers badly enough, it's not rocket science to do so.

 

Eventually we'll get to some non-contact form of payment, but I don't see any reason to be a guinea pig :smileyhappy:.
