“Buying” a fake-identity is by far the easiest way to overcome the limitation of being underage. Some people use their siblings’ IDs, while others simply get a fake ID. It sounds risky, but also exciting and attractive. After all, you don’t want any restrictions. You have had alcohol before, so you know how much you can handle. Plus, social events held in bars and clubs are not to be overlooked either. But then, it’s still important to research this possibility and know how far you can take it. So, what are the most underrated questions about fake IDs?
What ID Should I Get?
Whatever you need the fake ID for, make sure you get the right one. In other words, it can be a regular ID or a driving license. No matter what, don’t get a fake passport. Think about it for a minute. No one shows their passports to bouncers, so it looks fishy. Other than that, fake passports are used for serious crimes and not just an innocent night out with your college buddies. Even when it comes to using someone else’s ID, you’ll never see people using their friends’ passports. So stay away from this form of identification.
Will Your Fake ID Pass the Inspection?
When using a fake stated ID, chances are you’ll only have to show it to two categories of people – club bouncers and cashiers. About 95% of all people who use fake IDs do it to get into clubs and buy alcohol. How do you know if yours will pass the inspection? Simple! Ask a friend with a real ID to show it to you, then compare them. Look at the shininess in direct sunlight, as well as the texture and thickness. Double check the plastic covering the ID and learn all the information on your ID, in case a cashier decides to “quiz” you.
Are There Any Risks?
Using a fake ID is not legal, so yes, there are some risks. Almost everyone gets away with it though. If you use the ID for personal reasons, you’re fine. Use it to get into clubs and buy alcohol every once in a while, and you’ll have no problems. On the other hand, if you want to rent cars without a driving license or buy a firearm, you risk getting in trouble, as you obviously put other people at risk too.
As a short conclusion, fake IDs are popular for good reasons – they open the door to a new dimension of life. Use them for the right purposes, and no one will complain about it. In the worst case, you might be denied from entering a club or buying a six-pack.
