There's an interesting article at ABCNEWS.com talking about how easy it is to get fake ID's of all different sorts from various companies online. In fact, a U.S. senator (part of a senate subcommittee investigating the whole online fake ID thing) got phony credentials identifying her as a reporter and an Army reservist, among other things.
Of course it seems things have gone beyond the whole "I want a fake ID so I can drink beer" phenomenon. A 23 year old man is currently awaiting sentencing for making some fake IDs, and he apparently used them to get $60K in loans. According to information provided to the senators, almost 30 percent of all fake IDs come from the Internet, up from under 5 percent two years ago. Now that, my friends, is progress.
