Does Apple Pay help thieves?
Better guard your credit cards. What's to keep someone from scanning your card into their iPhone?

This guy only did a few tests. With a bit more info though you never know.
I might try to add a few cards (with that persons consent) and see how it goes.

Re: Does Apple Pay help thieves?
This summary might be worth thinking about:
"And the Apple Pay system did prevent me from committing egregious acts of card theft. But if this really is the future of credit card commerce, there's one aspect of the card provisioning process that could be done better. Since the system already has the ability to do two-step verification, why didn't the banks and Apple make it the only way to authorize a card for use? It's hardly an inconvenience. I tried it with a legitimate card and it took a few extra seconds. Sure, it's not as convenient as simply pointing a iPhone camera at your credit card and instantly authorizing it for use, but I know that my wife would have appreciated the extra verification step—and she also wishes I had brought her home at least one of those cheeseburgers she paid for."
