Being the idiot I am, I sent them $100. EVERY site that sells these "novelty" ids are scams. I sent my money a month ago and I sent them a few emails and I never heard back. To make sure that they weren't busy, I created an alternate email account and asked them if "They can do orders of more than 15?", which obviously I tricked them and got a reply of just "yes." Please don't send these idiots any money even though these sites look very very real.

If you did send these guys money and feel very angry, do what I do and send gay porn or threaten them with biochemicals in the envelopes and send them to the address that they gave you.

Become21.com - Become21.com is Makemyid.com are SCAMS.
United States

Become21.com which is the old Makemyid.com is a scam. They will only request payment in the form of Western Union, DO NOT ORDER FROM THESE SCAM ARTISTS. They take your money, do not respond to any emails, basically just take your money and run.

They have a ring of fake review websites giving them good ratings to sucker innocent buyers. These fake review websites, like Underground-Review.com, 21overnight.com, noveltyidsite.com are all connected to these scams! It is a huge scam operation, much bigger in scale than one can imagine at first. Scam artists will go to any length to try and take your money.

The person receiving the Western Union payment is:

First Name: DEMETRIOS
Last Name: KYRIAKIDES
City: LIMASSOL
Country: CYPRUS

He is a scam artist. Do not send your money!

Become21.com - Never received id!
United States

I ordered a card... stupid. And I was clearly supposed to receive it awhile ago. So now they tell me that they got very mired down in tons of orders, and so I should cancel the check I placed on my original order, and simply place a new order. As if. Wish I had seen these complaints on become21 before I ordered from this website. I don't even think its worth it to try and cancel the check. They've most likely already cashed it.

Become21.com - Incredible scam, wish I could get in on it!
Canada

I needed an ID for university, and in my ultimate nativity I trusted this site which nobody had written about. Of course there was this one site which rated it top notch, but other than that nothing else, NOTHING. So I order from these guys cause of the whole "we'll send you an id to prove it" sounded pretty legit right? Instead I get f'ed over by a bunch of terrorists from Dubai. I must've been a complete idiot to send a hundred bucks to some country I've never heard of. I know this site sounds amazing, but seriously find something else, I sent the money order on August 1st and haven't heard anything!

Beware!

Become21.com - Scam and cheating!
United States

Has anyone actually received anything from this company, or is it 100% scam? 3 of my friends and I recently sent some cash over there (I knew that was a bad idea, UGH!) and I guess there's probably no way to get it back now. The guy was really good about email correspondence in the beginning, but now I've heard nothing. Such a bummer...

Demetrios has changed his name to Khalil Fakih and is now accepting cashiers and certified checks. Someone responds to emails if they are nasty or threatening in nature. Shame on them and shame on me for ordering one in the first place!!

hey, I'm just following up on my original post... I just got back the envelope full of cash I express mailed 2 weeks ago to Dubai. The envelope was rejected for some reason... I don't know if I screwed up the address or maybe their scam was finally shut down, but I feel incredibly fortunate to have gotten back the $240 I sent them! I hope everyone else is as lucky as I just was... no one deserves to be scammed by terrorists! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

What are you complaining about? Aren't you trying to perpetrate a fraud by having a fake ID? You are just as crooked as them.

Become21.com - Do not order from this company!
United States

I was stupid enough to order from Become21.com and to send $100 to Dubai. Shame on me, I know. Please don't make the same mistake I did. It's a great scam -- the web site looks legitimate and they are really responsive when they receive your order. But once they get your money, you hear nothing and get nothing. DO NOT ORDER FROM BECOME21.COM!!!

Become21.com - Poor service!
United States

So I made my order for an ID from become21.com. Sent them 130$ (extra 30$ for express) waited and waited. Nothing. Then yesterday (a month later) I received an envelope with my name typed on it. It was post marked from Philadelphia, PA. I can tell there is an ID in there. I was excited . Then I opened it and found a piece of paper with my picture on it, UTAH printed on it, my stats except for my B-day, and some crummy graphic of a road. It was laminated. I couldn't even get a library card with this. It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Talk about getting hosed. Why would people do this? They could make so much $$$ by doing a great service for people, but instead they try and make a quick buck by ripping us off. Is there really any legit place that offers a service that they stand behind? I am sick and tired of these fu***ng foreigners that rip us off.

Please don't use this website, do not use identity.com either, they are all fraud websites promised to get you a fake id but this is not the case, they change their website address every so often to get you newbies to scam on. Do not trust
Underground-Review.com either, its run by the same people as become21.com, fakeid.com, and identity.com, and many more websites dedicating to give this website a 5-star review.

well, I think its wrong to assume that they are terrorists, thats racial profiling, which def. sucks. Yea, they're a bunch of ###s taking advantage of our country's ### backwards laws where you can go to war and kill someone at 18, but you can have a drink and talk about it when you get back. But that hardly qualifies them as terrorists. Supremely fraudulent ###s for sure, but terrorists is quite a stretch. If you are going to critique something, be politically correct, don't offend people, it only draws away from the validity of your story. In any event, I am really sorry that you all had to go through that, I would've been yet another victim had i not caught this post. Thanks and best of luck!

For the guy who keeps saying... you tried to buy a fake id, you deserved to get screwed over... its still wrong. Guess you missed out on that infamous saying, "two wrongs doesn't make a right."

I have ordered from two site and they all ran away with my money. I have posted around this site and try to help people from getting ripped off. I found a legit website for fake id's. www.canadancc.com .they shipped my order with tracking. I was not able to track my orders from the others two sites. I hope this will help some people out.
