Possessing such items, even without trying to use them, can get you jail-time in the UK ...

I would say that there are many reasons not to deal with SPAMMERS, especially with respect to Fake ID's.

Not only is it illegal, but these are not "legitimate" businesses.  You won't know the quality of their work until after you've paid, and may not discover it until you've actually handed your fake to a law enforcement officer. 

And there is no guarantee that these fly-by-night companies will even send the ID to you.  They may just take your money then vanish.

And never, never, never send any personal ID to a forger.  Send a Visa account number, and you should expect them to start selling it.  Send a check, and expect them to copy it hundreds, or thousands of times.  Send valid ID, and expect identity theft.

Not to mention the risk of implicating yourself in a sting operation.
