Liz:

In So Cal, the fake IDs don’t cost hundreds of dollars, they’re cranked out like candy and available in the local parks.

A license plate tag (cars must be “registered” — and taxed — with the state every year and issued a different colored tag) runs around $22 in the local park. Mine set me back $150, about the least amount one can pay — for a 9-year old car with 150,000 on it.

But, from what I can see, IDs aren’t even asked for that much around here — someone got my credit card #’s and charged $1,400 to buy airline tickets from United — apparently no questions asked. Have no idea how they got the #’s but the guy at the bank told me “they have a million ways.”

Now why didn’t THAT guy have to give more info than the #’s on the credit card?

When I buy airline tickets, even online, I have to give a lot more information than just the numbers.

Hope United eats it — my bank returned the $$, BTW.
