Q: I'm going to be visiting Long beach about 2 months
before my 21st birthday. I have a real girls ID who looks a
bit like me saying that I'm 21. Are there any suggestions
about using this?
A: Unless people mistake you for twins this is not a good
idea. This is the most common trick bouncers look for.
Better off buying a good fake id because using
another's identification is identity theft.
Q: When I get a fake id online will it be valid when it
A: If the fake id website knows how to encode it or print
the barcode with the correct software, then yes. When scanning a fake license or real license
all it does is pull up the
information on the license. Bars and nightclubs may
scan an identification as an extra measure to make sure it
is real. They have no way to run your license information
through any government database. Many places that scan IDs
are now starting to save the scanned information off the
license into their own database to sell to others, or market
items to you. An example, is a nightclub scanning your ID and
8 months later, a week before your birthday, you get a mailer
in the mail offering you a free drink, or to host your
birthday party at their establishment. Another way for
people to know too much about you and invade your privacy.
We encourage anyone reading this who is of legal drinking
age to question any place that attempts to scan your
identification for entrance or purchase. Ask what happens to
your information that is recorded onto their computer from
your license. Any chance you get refuse such an invasion
into your personal information. No nightclub needs to know
your open-i-d.com address to enter, especially when you are paying
for the over priced drinks they serve.
Q: Will I get into trouble if caught with a fake id?
A: Depends. Bars usually just confiscate them or return
them to you and refuse entry. They have no legal right to
detain you, so if taken leave quickly in the event the pigs
were called. If you do get busted for using fake id
and where only using it to go drinking 99% of the time you
get a fine in the USA. Other countries that reserve their
cages for actual threats to society usually let you go with
