    Not even fake IDs are made in America anymore.

    Overseas forgers from as far away as China are shipping fake driver's license and other IDs to the United States that can bypass even the newest electronic digital security systems, according to document security experts and the Secret Service.

    The new IDs are "an affront to the very sovereignty and dignity of the states that issue them," says David Huff, a senior special agent in enforcement for Virginia's Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control, which has investigated some of the frauds.

    Most troubling to authorities is the sophistication of the forgeries: Digital holograms are replicated, PVC plastic identical to that found in credit cards is used, and ink appearing only under ultraviolet light is stamped onto the cards.

    Each of those manufacturing methods helps the IDs defeat security measures aimed at identifying forged documents.

    The overseas forgers are bold enough to sell their wares on websites, USA TODAY research finds. Anyone with an Internet connection and $75 to $200 can order their personalized ID card online from such companies as "ID Chief." Buyers pick the state, address, name and send in a scanned photo and signature to complete their profile.

    ID Chief, whose website is based in China, responds personally to each buyer with a money-order request.

    Very bad. When ACORN starts buying in bulk, the voter ID laws will be worthless.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    This is not just an underage teen getting a drink at the bar...think about all the identity thefts that can spring from this? Not good at all.

    Those Asians can make some good imitations. I bought a RO-Wrex that looks great. It just doesn't work.

    Liberals are proof that evolution is only a theory. Nothing that stupid could evolve past a monkey.
