News of the rise in fake ID use among underage individuals is pervasive and global, from Oregon to Liverpool, multiple stories like this one are published weekly. From January 26, 2012 on KEZI ABC News, "Generally, over the course of two weeks I might see 60," said OLCC (Oregon Liquor Control Commission) investigator Mark Jeanig. "This lot is almost double and they're all from the Eugene area. Two of the liquor stores turned in 50 or 60 IDs each, so, definitely an upswing in fake IDs."
The effect on businesses of serving or selling to underage individuals is severe, fines and penalties (thousands of dollars or loss of license) can be mitigated by having a rigid security tool to evaluate the IDs of prospective customers.
Establishments can reduce or eliminate human error and protect themselves from fraud by having an ID verification solution in place and establishing company policies and procedures that mandate use every time an ID is presented.
On Friday, January 27, 2012 an article titled "Evanston's liquor board considers closing down The Keg" states, Migon's (bar owner) lawyer, Todd Stephens, blamed increasingly sophisticated fake IDs for the bar's failure to stop underage drinkers. "It's no different than trying to police a good counterfeit hundred-dollar bill," Stephens said. "These things are perfect now."
In rigorous field environments, the AssureTec ID verification solution is the only product that has been proven to reliably detect these new sophisticated fraudulent IDs. Many other products only scan the barcode, and unfortunately, barcode scanners simply verify if there is data present on a card, not if the card is valid.
Thousands of AssureTec solutions are installed and operating globally, and have been selected time after time for the most discriminating security applications involving critical borders, high profile chemical and nuclear facilities as well as commercial enterprises to evaluate prospective customers, employees and visitors.
AssureTec's ID verification solution can recognise over 2,500 different ID types and in six seconds or less will extract all available data fields, read and compare both sides of the ID, run forgery detection tests, and inform you whether the ID is valid. In addition, the AssureTec Team continuously monitors the actions of the fraudulent document companies, and in every update, new features and tests are added to maintain the highest level of security for our customers.
