Fake ID A Really Bad Idea
Staten Island business bank warns that trouble readily may follow
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Buying a phony ID online may be one of the worst mistakes a young adult can make.
Victory State Bank, Staten Island's only community-based commercial bank, advises that a tempting offer to obtain a driver's license with a falsified age can open the door to a host of problems for the purchaser.
A description of the process and its woeful consequences at credit.com clearly should be an eye-opener for young adults who are not yet old enough to drink.
The fake ID has been a popular purchase for decades among Americans younger than the drinking age, credit.com says.
Many entrepreneurs have stories of creating a fake-ID business on college campuses (it’s illegal, but it’s lucrative), because as long as there have been rules, there have been people looking to break them, the Website explains.
To no one’s surprise, the industry has moved online, with young Americans ordering fake IDs much the same way they would buy, say, red plastic cups in bulk: fill out a form and click to buy — done.
