    China Busted For Making Fake Drivers Licenses

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.the...60840.html/amp

    US Customs Seizes Thousands of Fake IDs From China

    U.S. custom officials recently seized nearly 3,000 fake driver’s licenses—including one shipment going to a convicted child rapist —all of which were sent from China.

    The six intercepted shipments, heading to different individuals in the New York area, contained 2,909 counterfeit driver’s licenses and 3,123 blank card stocks used to make fake licenses, according to a Nov. 25 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) press release.

    This is why drivers licenses should not be used for identification for voting purposes

    But the “real” ID is supposed to prevent that, it is amazing just how proficient the Chinese are at counterfeiting. As a coin collector I am always wary of coins from Chinese vendors and they are even counterfeiting the “slabs” the grading companies are using.

    What would you recommend using instead? The cheesy paper voter-registration card FL uses?

    What kind of ID could we use instead Patti? Almost any physical form I can think of can be faked. Also, China is the world's most corrupt government. Mexico is number two. Why do we do business with either of them?

    Heck, I made a fake drivers license back in 1970 in order to purchase beer/liquor underage.

    Worked real well.

    What took China so long to catch up, is what I'm wondering.

    This is outrageous!!! China should not be making fake US drivers licences. Fake US drivers licenses should be made in the US, by US criminals! Off-shoring fraud hurts out black market economy.

    Seriously, you can tell even by the grainy picture, those fakes are not federally compliant REAL IDs, that will be required to board flights starting in Oct. 2020. I think going forward, only REAL IDs should be used for voting, since every state will have them. To get one, you have to present two proofs of residency and and your SSN. Then that is all encrypted on a chip in the card. It's not perfect, but it two people show up at polls with the same identifying information, that can be caught by a computer system.

    My wife and I was able to forge a Marriage License from TX. And this was back in 1992! I got the same paper they used, used the computer and graphics at the time, and used steam to make the raised seal.

    It was so good, that when compared to the original, we could not tell the difference except for the dates.

    BTW: We only did this from the original marriage certificate and was not used for any official purposes. We got married 3 months prior to the church wedding. My wife was afraid that when the family wanted photos of us with the license the date would be wrong. So I forged it LOL.

    Both familiy's still not know we were married 3 months prior to the Church wedding.

    That’s a good question. Some states issue drivers license to illegals, which also provides them a voter registration card. It’s called “voter motor” states. Only US citizens can vote in national elections, so proof of citizenship should be required.

    To prevent people from voting multiple times in one election, I propose the dipping the finger in ink method, like in Pakistan.

    "Proper" ID creators exist all over the world. Doesn't surprise me that some "ring" has been found based in China. Or, at least shipping from China during this leg of the enterprise.

    Tough problem. How to create a means of identification that's counterfeit-proof. Can't imagine that there is one. Short of an immediate-results type of DNA scan, assuming such a scan could be 100%. Perhaps that's the goal, with all this DNA swabbing going on these days. To get around the counterfeiting, and to render faking one's identification all but impossible. (China. Hmph. Figures.)

    100% Tamper proofing a ID is probably not possible.

    Even if it was possible; one must look at the possibility of bribes, payoffs etc; from the manufacturer of voting machines to the volunteers
    who staff polling place; and the entire chain of control between the two.

    "....like Pakistan" LOL

    The day I have to dip my finger into an ink bowl to vote is the day this country officially turned into a 3rd world country politically. Glad you think this is a good idea.
