Few weeks ago my akbil(İstanbul city transportation pass by IETT company) got broken. It was really bad for me since I had a student card which pays discounted fare to bus, metrobus, metro etc.. Getting a new student akbil requires to get a student certificate and visiting an IETT(public transportation company) office. So I decided to fix my broken card. Of course I hadn’t thrown my broken card. I was actually carrying it with me still.

My card was broken from one side only but the NFC antenna was broken. So I needed to remove the chip and attach it to some other antenna. I starting scraping the card with a knife because it was made out of PVC. It was a tough material it was impossible to see where the chip is. I guessed some part found antenna parts but all my guesses were wrong. I was thinking maybe the broken part was holding the chip.. Since broken part was missing I lost my hope. Then I started burning the card with the help of a lighter.
