Counterfeit smart card drivers licences used to obtain genuine identity document

Counterfeit documents don't have to be high quality, they have to be of sufficient quality to achieve their aim.  A counterfeit drivers licence may have the outward appearance of a genuine product however a quick evaluation of various security features would challenge the document authenticity.

Any workplace that assesses identity documents must have staff attuned to both the detection of fraudulent documents and activities, as well as the process for dealing with documents of concern.
