    Here your Opps is looks like a credit car type of Id. Its all computer generated with a special optic with the foil State of Michigan seal on it in several locations. Its kind of hard to make a fake one but they do exist. I check for the smallest things. Usualy with this type of ID you can tell by looking at the picture and its pixelation or by the decorations at the top to see if its missing anything. Also there is a magnetic swipe line on the back for scanning which PDs don't use yet but soon they will..

    The old ones were easy to detect. Cut the seal and splice in new photo to someone elses id

    Hey, guys... How many of you are affected by this, and what have you done about it? If you were in any branch of the service, or have ever filed any VA claim, its time to get some consumer credit monitoring from the three credit unions and call your banks for fraud alert monitoring.
    Nathan in my case, both my wife and I are as risk because she was a dependent and I received VA benefits for awhile.
    I used my guide specifically the portion on IT security to perform a courtesy survey on that Department. Ran into the business end of a buzz saw. It is alright to have your head in the sand, but one must remember other vital parts of the body are subsequently exposed.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    My state has quite a way to go to make more foolproof id's. Identity theft is a major problem here.

    Just recently the Secret Service busted a 19yo for making QUALITY SS ids on his home computer.

    Mr. Security has one of the best suggestions, right there. Ask the person if, based on their knowledge, there is something that you should be aware of.

    If they say no, there is nothing, and it is a fake ID, then there's stronger grounds for "intent" to use the fake ID. This can add additional charges later, if that avenue is pursued.

    Most states use the Soundex statem. Example, my name is Corbier, which translates to C616. Florida uses your DOB for a check digit. WI does not.

    Most use the Plastic Film laminate card, now. If you need to detect fake IDs frequently, invest in a UV pen light or keychain light, such as a Streamlight Stylus UV. Holography, combined with UV ink, will show the common variety fake ID at times.

    The really professional ones are an indicator that you are dealing with a high threat indicator, they paid a pretty price for their fake credentials. The ones your examining right now. Be prepared to counter their possible attack to prevent you from reporting the credentials fake, as well as retrieving them. You "know too much," not just have their fake ID.

    Fake ID's in Conn. can really be high-tech and extremely difficult to discern. To further compound the issue, an investigation regarding a scandal at the DMV revealed that real driver licenses were issued to unknown individuals by corrupt DMV clerks in exchange for money.

    I prefer to ask the individual questions that he/she should know, based on their ID, if I have suspicions.

    In WA state, ( I dont know about others) you get your drivers license number. Such as mine, LAWSOBC154MJ.

    This all means something. The first five letters are of your last name. The next is your first initial and the last is your middle initial. The 154 derives from your year of birth. This number, when added to your year of birth will always equal 2000, unless born post-2000 (In which, it should be pretty easy to tell they're underage!) the M and J are coded by which month and day you were born.

    Once you know all this info, it makes it easier to spot ID's that people have made using some kind of format on their PC. Most people dont know the codes and wont make them fit the stuff on their card.

    One way I have found fake ID's is to become familiar with the print and stock of an authentic ID under good lighting. If you have a good eye, you should notice the differences.

    Besides pictures and description being different, I've always given the card a little bend, if its a shoddy lamination job the laminante will crack. It will usually crack at the bottom or top of the bend. You don't have to bend it at a 90 degree angle or anything, just a little bit. Try it on your ID, the laminate won't crack (as long as you don't have a fake).
