People from all walks of life can now travel across borders more easily because they no longer have to pay big bucks to fraudulent passport makers down the aisle. You can quickly find high-quality and affordable fake passports on several sites. I checked the dark web and found lots of websites offering fake passports.
Other sites offer US passports and even citizenship! The small print reads: “We offer armored US passports + SSN + driver's licenses and birth certificates and other documents that make you an official US citizen! This works even if you are not in the US yet. "How do we do it? Trade secrets! But we can assure you that you won't have any problems with our documents.
You don't have to go to the dark web to find such a service. A Google search for "second passport" or "surrogate bank account" yields millions of results. A quick look reveals sites that offer replacement payslips, tax documents, bank accounts, utility bills, ID cards, and passports. Some even offer buy-one-get-one-free!
The terms and conditions of most of these websites state that buyers purchase with the understanding that they will not use the documents for any illegal purpose, and the sellers give them the understanding that the documents are for "new and entertainment purposes only"!
This warning serves as a defense against possible lawsuits. Of course, most of these sites do not contain postal addresses. A "whois" search of the web site's IP address reveals companies outside the target host's jurisdiction.
