Fake IDs bought on Jackson Heights streets
From the NY Post:
It’s a passport to trouble — and it can be bought for just $260 on the streets of Jackson Heights, Queens.
In just one hour, The Post was able to buy a phony green card, Social Security card and New York state driver’s license from a stranger on a corner — all of which could serve as a gateway to obtain legitimate IDs.
The cards are frighteningly real — convincing enough to fool creditors, potential employers and security at buildings and even the airport.
Experts said the biggest fear is that these IDs are being bought by people who slipped past border crossings.
