PYMNTS.com on 18th September reported on recent Federal Trade Commission action where it had it shut down websites where consumers could buy fake financial and other documents – such as pay stubs, income tax forms, and medical statements – which can be used to facilitate identity theft, tax fraud, and other crimes.  It refers to a case involving a company, Innovative Paycheck Solutions and its website FakePayStubOnline.com through which a customer could buy a fake stub for as little as $40 or a fake tax return for $150 or more.  Visitors could also customise their documents and to edit real bank statements.  Another company named is Integrated Flight Solutions and its website NoveltyExcuses.com, as well as websites run by George Jiri Strnad II, such as iVerifyMe.
