Identification fraud is a crime that is committed frequently by persons under the age of 21 This fraud has been rapidly increasing over the past decade due to the growth advancing in technology Being under the age of 21 I have seen the possession and use of Fake Identification Cards fake ids frequently among my peer group The most common use of them is to purchase alcohol and be admitted into bars andor clubs I have found it intriguing how these cards are produced and how genuine they look My curiosity led me to ponder on what the consequences some of my peers would encounter if they were convicted of identification fraud and why it is so common As it turned out the penalties were much more serious then what I first imagined In the US penalties vary from state to state State government officials in Virginia are making the penalties harsher for underage individuals using false identification Young adults aged 18 20 who use a falsified DMV drivers license military or university identification card to buy possess or drink alcohol can be convicted of a Class 3 misdemeanor When convicted they could have their drivers license suspended from 30 days to a year be fined up to 2500 and face up to 12 months in jail It is also illegal to loan a drivers license or identification card to another person and the consequence can be more severe than the person who used the id The sale or production of a fake ID can result in conviction of a Class 1 misdemeanor and a Class 2 misdemeanor charge for possession of such ID Manufacturing IDs meaning large-scale production is a class 6 felony A felony is more serious than a misdemeanor It means more jail time higher fines and longer suspension of driving privileges The reason that young adults ignore the penalties is because they seldom hear of one another
