With the recent take down of LR and the U.S. government trying to shut down the un licensed payment processors, will sites and services start accepting and paying though western union? FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY,DO NOT USE ANY OF THIS INFORMATION TO VIOLATE ANY LAWS In small amounts some locations do not even check ID,and even if they do, they do not have the resources to verify if its a legit ID. And even if they did get the device to check to see if its a real id. It doesn't check against the state DMV, all it checks is if the magnetic strip and 3D barcode match the information on the front of the ID. Most states in the US do not even encrypt the data on the magnetic strip or the 3D barcode. As long as the ID is in the proper format,with correct info in strip and barcode, then most businesses accept it as a real ID.
