"We do recognize that some members of the older generation are the ones most concerned with identity theft"- CEO Gino Pereira
SHELTON, Conn., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc., (NXTD: OTCQB) a biometric authentication company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announces its next generation smart wallet, Wocket™, was recently the topic of an interview on Boomer Times. Host Anita Finley interviewed Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, on July 9th for over thirty minutes.
Mr. Gino Pereira explains how the Wocket will
replace old bulky wallets full of credit cards and walks host Anita Finley through the step-by-step process of using a
Wocket and its biometrically secure card, replacing a traditional credit card.
Gino tells Anita that 44% of known causes of identity theft can be traced back to stolen wallets. He goes on to share that one in ten consumers have been a victim of identity theft and how the biometric security features of the Wocket can prevent future abuse.
When Anita asks if a Wocket is for men or women he responds, "It's for
everybody who wants something new and techy. It's cool but it's also very
practical and helps protect your identity, keeping it in your own personal
"The young kids of course will love it but it takes us older people a little bit longer to figure out" says Host Anita Finley.
In terms of the boomer generation Gino notes the Wocket is very simple to use. "We do recognize that some members of the older generation are the ones most concerned with identity theft. They may only have a couple of credit cards or debit cards but it is great value to protect them.
Literally within a minute of reading instructions they can get two or three cards loaded on their Wocket and have it set up and ready to go."
The Wocket is currently available for advance orders at www.wocketwallet.com and shipments are scheduled to begin in September 2014.
