According to a report from the State University of New York at Buffalo, the reporter was surprised to find that many college students would actually spend hundreds of dollars to buy fake IDs, or ID cards. According to a survey published by the website Spectrum, 33% of the 273 students interviewed at the State University of New York at Buffalo said they used fake IDs to enter bars and clubs or buy alcohol. Some people buy fake ids for sale from dealers or websites, and others borrow real IDs from friends over 21 years old. Among the students, there are also those who make money by selling fake IDs. Joseph Clay of the State University of New York at Buffalo has started this illegal business since the first semester of his freshman year, a career that may put him in prison. For the past three years, Clay sold hundreds of fake ID cards to students at the State University of New York at Buffalo every month. Clay started selling fake ID cards to classmates since high school. He would buy them from online resellers for $50 per ID, and then sell them to others at an increased price. He said: “People are willing to pay one hundred dollars or more for two ID cards.” Online dealers will lower the price of a single minnesota fake id to get larger orders. The larger the order, the greater the profit for Clay. "I turned it into a small business," Clay said.
