    Fake identification has become increasingly sophisticated and difficult to detect.  The traditional process of reviewing ID documents can be stressful and overwhelming with a high level of expertise needed to detect fakes.  Most ID review technology tools available are limited, reviewing the same core indicators which make them easy to bypass.
