Schoolies 2017 Fake ID

At Schoolies 2017, a  fake ID site is helping to fuel the problem.

Many schoolies rolled into the town this week flashing their new “student identification” cards — which looked remarkably like NSW drivers’ licences.

The problem being, no such identification has ever been issued to students by the NSW government.

The cards are sold online by proprietors like fakies.com.au, who market them as “novelty”, and cost just $60.

“Our fake ID cards are dispatched from our Melbourne location within two business days,” the website boasts.

Sydney Fake ID Factory closed down

A fraud network creating fake id, credit cards, pay slips and employment records with non-existent companies — and even a fake secretary answering a phone to back up the created identity — has been dismantled by police in Sydney.

In one of the most sophisticated fraud scams of its kind, the fake documents were used to create bank ­accounts and obtain loans and credit cards from financial institutions.

Police believe a “considerable” number of Australians have likely had their identities stolen by the Sydney crime syndicate. It’s too early to know exactly how many people were targeted.
