I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

How naive can people be. The technology to read your card without you taking it out of your pocket has been around for over 25 years. Clothes shops have identity cards on garments so if you try to steal, an alarm goes off as you go through the door. With discreet card readers everywhere you will effectively be tagged. Maybe we should call them tags not cards. At the moment we only tag supposed criminals.

It is only necessary to store an identity number on the card then every detail of your life will be looked up on various central databases. If your credit rating is not good enough you may be barred entry from shopping malls etc etc.
