Financial security and identity theft are complex interwoven issues that cost citizens and governments billions of dollars each year.
Fake IDs intersect with these issues in several critical ways:
- Voluntarily providing personal identifiable information (PII) such as name, address, birthday, and photo gives criminals low-hanging fruit to exploit that could wreak havoc in your financial life.
- Fake IDs themselves can be used to “verify” new credit lines, bank accounts, and used to defraud by stealing money and goods — all while posing as “you.”
- Your information can provide in-person fake credentials to criminals who establish new identities for victims of human traffickers or used in other crimes.
