The Electronic Recovery and Access to Data (ERAD) Prepaid Card Reader is currently being used by state and local law enforcement in 48 states, by federal law enforcement agencies, and by international law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement officers use the ERAD Prepaid Card Reader to determine if suspicious cards — bank credit and debit cards, retail gift cards, library cards, hotel keys, even magnetic-striped metrorail cards — are loaded with funds — and then freeze those funds to allow time to determine if the funds are from criminal activities.
