Hong Kong man jailed over forged identity card

  Hong Kong man jailed over forged identity card


     A Hong Kong resident has been jailed for possessing forged identity cards and false instruments.     Gary Tang Tak-cheong, 46, pleaded guilty at the Sha Tin Magistrates’ Court on February 20 to one count of in possession of forged identity card and one count of possessing a false instrument. He was jailed for 20 months on each charge, the sentences to run concurrently.     The court heard that Immigration investigators raided premises in Kowloon Tong in January 2008.  Two Mainlanders were found to be performing renovation work there and Tang was the contractor of the renovation work. Entry records of the building revealed that Tang had taken the two Mainlanders to the building four times and each time the two men had registered as Hong Kong identity card holders.     Two days after the raid, Immigration officers raided Tang’s residential address where they found five forged Hong Kong identity cards and six copies of forged Hong Kong identity cards inside a cabinet. One of the seized Hong Kong identity cards had the photo of one of the Mainlanders at the premises in Kowloon Tong and it tallied with the entry records at the building.       Forensic examination revealed that all Hong Kong identity cards seized were forgeries.     “Under the laws of Hong Kong, anyone who has in his custody a false instrument commits an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for 14 years,” an Immigration spokesman said.     The spokesman warned that it was an offence in law to use or possess a forged identity card or transfer an identity card to another person. Offenders are liable to prosecution and a maximum penalty of a $100,000 fine and imprisonment for 10 years.

Indianapolis CBP Intercepts 1,207 Counterfeit Driver’s Licenses

  INDIANAPOLIS— Fraudulent driver’s licenses, which can be used for criminal activity or fraud, continue to be found by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Express Consignment Operations hub across the nation.

  LicensesHundreds of counterfeit driver licenses were

  seized by CBP officers in Indianapolis.Last week Indianapolis CBP detained three shipments that were arriving from Hong Kong. The contents were described as “Game Card” with a value of $20.00. Officers inspected the shipments and found nearly 1,200 counterfeit state driver’s licenses. One shipment contained 358 counterfeit driver’s licenses, while the second and third shipments contained 482 and 367 counterfeit licenses respectively. The first shipment was heading to an address in Chicago and the other two shipments were heading to addresses in New York.

  The counterfeit licenses seized were for more than 20 states including California, Ohio, South Carolina, Michigan, North Carolina, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Most were for college-age students, and some licenses would share the same picture but have a different name.

  While CBP sees these dark web transactions frequently, according to LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, Director, Field Operations-Chicago, the reasoning for buying fake IDs has evolved from teenagers trying to get into bars to more nefarious activity. “Some of the major concerns as it relates to fraudulent identity documents is identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking, and these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures.”

  “Counterfeit drivers licenses have historically been used by those under 21 years of age for the illegal consumption of alcohol, but fake IDs have also been used in criminal enterprises, such as identity theft cases and immigration fraud,” said Chief CBP Officer Tim Hubbard. “Customs and Border Protection officers will continue to be vigilanct during enforcement operations, and we remain committed to the safety and security of our nation.”

  CBP Officers coordinate findings with CBP’s Fraudulent Document Analysis Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, and other federal partners to combat this illicit activity.

  CBP routinely conducts inspection operations on arriving and departing international flights and intercepts narcotics, weapons, currency, prohibited agriculture products, counterfeit goods, and other illicit items at our nation’s 328 international ports of entry.
