How to Spot a Fake ID
Fake IDs or falsified identification documents that falsify identity to state agencies constitute violations of various laws depending on how and why the ID was used, often misdemeanors but potentially carrying severe felony-level consequences that will hinder future job applications and college applications.
Finding an authentic ID can be difficult, but you should always inspect it for signs of fraud. A real ID typically features rounded edges which are harder to replicate; plus there should be state-specific security features specific to where it was issued. If an ID seems suspicious, try bending it into a U-shape as this will cause non-professional laminates to bubble and signal that it might be fake.
Before purchasing fake IDs online for sale, it’s essential that you understand the law surrounding their use. Under Virginia Code, it is illegal to manufacture, advertise for sale, sell or possess fake driver’s licenses or identity documents within the US; similarly possessing or displaying any false military ID, foreign passport, visa application form or official government ID are also violations punishable by fines or jail time.
