    1. The report indicates that identity theft is one of the crimes increasing in magnitude. We need to make sure that it gets minimized, discouraging college kids from underage drinking will curb the menace somehow. But for it to succeed educational institutes need to play a role in making sure the teenagers are aware of the repercussions that fake identity cards can bring. In current times, one can easily avail fake id cards from FakeYourID at an affordable price and you can find various others at good offering the same service. Hence, it is easy for these kids to get their hands on them and then start partying but some dumb ones drive while drunk and that is why it is dangerous for society.
