T HEY DON'T BE FAKEEDR OUT
How do the Village Corner people
always know which IDs are fake?

When it comes to spotting
fake IDs, it's all amatter of expe-
rience.
So says Lorin Brace, who
works nights at Village Corner,
a campus grocery store known
for confiscating the fake IDs of
underage students.
Brace, a four-year veteran
of Village Corner, said he sees
"hundreds and hundreds of IDs
from all over the country or the
world" on an average weekend
night.
"Eventually you sort of figure
out what certain IDs are sup-
posed to look like or feel like,"
Brace said. "You get the feeling
after a while if they're too stiff
or too faded."

The store once had a fake ID
Wall of Shame, adorned with
confiscated IDs from California
to New Jersey, but it has since
been taken down.
Still, looking through a stack
of more than 40 phony IDs
taken in the last three weeks
alone reveals Village Corner's
fast eye for fakes.
"Some of them are really bad,"
Brace said. "But some of them
are a little bit harder to tell."
When a Village Corner
employee does confiscate a fake
ID, some students have been
known to get a bit hostile, Brace
said.
He said it's not uncommon to
be berated after taking some-
claimed his bike was locked
before it turned up missing.
There are no suspects or wit-
nesses in the case.

one's fake ID.
In one instance, a young
woman leapt over the front
counter in an attempt to get her
fake ID back. Not only was she
unsuccessful, but the fake ID
listed her actual address, which
allowed the police to locate her
shortly thereafter.
Above all, Brace said that
there's no secret to spotting a
fake ID. It merely comes down
to hard-earned experience and
intuition.
"There maybe certain things
you look for," Brace said, "but
really it's just knowing what
a real ID is supposed to look
like."
