my sophmore daughter is cutting a deal today on a fake id, she is buying one of her sorority sisters drivers license, who will claim it lost and get another one. She says everyone has one at school. I asked her what happens if she gets caught with it and she said she'll only use it in "easy bars" where she knows they don't give a shit, and not at the bars known to check hard. She has another one comming from another girl who looks a whole lot like my daughter. The one she is getting today is "close", the girl looks lust like Shelly Dubinski!
Do people ever get busted for using these fake IDs?
Depends where. DC is pretty strict but some of the bars in Adams Morgan don't give a shit. If she is just looking to use them at college then she will most likely be fine...especially if she is in College Park where they could care less.
Fake IDs are commonplace. People get busted sometimes, but the worst that will happen is the bouncer will take your ID and not let you in.
As long as you don't try to use a fake at a selective place like DC it won't matter. College bars don't care.

I remember back in the day at UM when some guy in Cumberland Hall had a big fake I.D. operation where you posed for a photo inside a giant cutout of a driver's license. In the pre-hologram/watermark days, they were pretty good quality.
was on the Animal house thread and something about her tabes struck me
I hope you're serious, that's good enough for a John Hughes movie!
They get taken on the reg, but I've never heard a story of someone actually getting in real trouble. If they do, it's probably because they try to put up a fight and claim that it's legit.
If you just cut your losses when the bouncer/liquor store guy calls you out, nothing will happen.
Tell her to be careful using them to buy beer, especially when you're away from the college town. You can get arrested.
When I was at UMD we still had paper drivers liceses. I had a scalpel and would cut out and exchange numbers to make a person's real license have them as 21. It always worked at the bars, but a buddy got in deep shit when he gave it to a cop who had pulled him over.
Getting busted with a fake is no big deal. Getting busted while making fakes, however...
That guy made the news. They said he charged 100 each and most likely made 1000 or more of them.
I'm pretty sure he did some jail time for that.
Yea, making/distributing fakes will get you in some shit. Using one to try to get into a bar will not(in almost all circumstances.)
i just noticed a potential problem with the license my daugher is buying and she sent me a picture of it. It's a VA license and at the top it says "UNDER 21" very prominently, so I'm guessing that VA sends out another card when you turn 21?
I had a DC Identification card when I was 15 and looked like I was 13. It was bright yellow and could pick my own name which I named myself Michael Lee Bird. It actually worked at a few places in the 80's. No one ever took it away from me just said no. Different times though, still have it somewhere too.
Delaware license? (i mean, thats what i heard...)
She will probably get turned down some places but others will let her in that don't give a shit. I wouldn't spend too much money on it.
My sisters old boyfriend took my birth certificate while I was at school and went to DMV and got an ID with his picture on it. Thats the tits. Can't believe I let that happen.
Yep it all changed with that halogram. I remember I also had one of those boards and tried this with some of friends. Didn't work out all that well. Lamenator was the key
I knew some pot dealers in college, and a friend told them that I had had a brother that died shortly after birth. This dealer guy offered me some good coin for that birth certificate, I said no deal.
fantastic, healthy tabes

Drinking age wasn't 18 then?
Don't give it to cops if you get pulled over. Had a buddy with a fake green card (he looks like he could be hispanic) that got pulled over and they didn't like that too much. He was underage and had been drinking. Otherwise, its college, everyone does it.
Had a phenomenal one done by some Chinese kid at UMBC in 98 (my freshman year). Perfect MD drivers license but without the holo, which was new at the time, so it worked every single time at a ton of places. The one dagger was the asshole middle eastern guy at #1 Liquors, who kept looking for the holo and eventually scanned it. But at least he tossed it back at me as he denied the sale, so it lived on until I turned 21.
Why did your daughter tell you she is getting a fake ID?
I had my first one taken at 9:30 Club. Was an idiot for trying to use it there. Never had any problems in CP.
Yes. In fact VA has two different drivers licenses. An under 21 driver has a vertical drivers license while an over 21 driver has a horizontal drivers license.
I remember going to the Grog & Tankard when I was like 19 (and looked about 14). I gave the bouncer my real ID. He looked at it, looked at me, looked back at it and said "Are you 21?" I said "Yep!" and he gave me my wristband.
Poor math skills FTW!
