amp; Paul general 4 daniel Mark 14 Davidson Vallely Trunews 11 Catch a fake ID by using the F.L.A.G. system.

Every 2 seconds, an identity is stolen in the United States, and 46 percent of all identity theft crimes are committed with a fake ID.

Identity theft is rampant, so if you ask for a customer’s ID as part of your business or campus procedure, you or your employees need to know what a fake ID looks like. If you don’t know and have done nothing to protect yourself, then shame on you. Identity thieves count on your lack of knowledge so they can use false identification cards (some even poorly made) to defraud you of your service and/or money.

And don’t think that identity theft is just a minor financial crime. The two worst cases of domestic terrorism in the United States (Oklahoma City and World Trade Center bombings) were both committed by suspects using fake IDs.

Many industries (hotel, retail, mortgage, escrow, property rental, healthcare, etc.) ask for identification, but don’t train their employees how to recognize a fake ID. For the past eight years I have taught thousands of people how to check for the security features used by all states to verify a real ID. The last I time I checked, there were more than 240 different IDs in the United States. Most states use the same security features, but they add their own twists. Some of these features can be seen with the naked eye, while others require some simple technology such as a UV light and a high-quality magnifying glass.

The California Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control teaches a system called F.L.A.G. to check IDs.  It stands for F = feel, L = look, A = ask and G = give back to the person or police.  There are more than 25 different points to check in F.L.A.G. to be aware of on ID cards.  Here are just a few of them >

    LaserCards, who makes the US green card, made me the first “green card authenticator”. It would read limited info on the green card; if it didn’t read, the optical strip was either damaged or the card was a fake. If it got stuck in the machine or wouldn’t eject properly, it was a fake. It removes the guess work and saves time in training multiple people how to identify fake green cards.

    Fake id is probably the hardest part in the methodology. The rest of the steps are easy I personally suggest using fake id service like FakeYourID for a nice counterfeit license and then follow the rest of the steps. Instagram and Facebook have implemented the use of verifying digital ids for people but you can get that from the service mentioned as well and that too at a cheaper price.
