One of the concerns for security field professionals is the proliferation of crimes committed with the use of fake identity documents. Fake IDs are popular among criminals but also among American college students who want to drink alcohol, before they turn 21 years of age. Thus fake IDs became available to buy on the internet from for a small fee paid in bitcoin. British youth obtain fake IDs mostly to be able to buy cigarettes, as legal drinking age in Britain is 18 years, so they are less popular in UK.

The Security Pitch
