Whether a source is trusted depends on the truster.  An ID might be an
excellent trusted path for one person and not for another.  For
example, my University of California ID.  Indeed, I might sign a
photograph affidavit of identity for a friend of mine.  People who
know me and know my signature would accept that as ID for the friend;
people who do not know me or do not know my signature should not
accept that as ID.

It is you that do not trust a Transnational Republic ID, and with good
reason.  You shouldn't trust it, and neither should or would I.  But
that does *not* mean that anyone who presents it is trying to trick

You claim that there was forgery.  Or at least, you were claiming that.

What was the trick?  Exactly, please.  What fact were people being
tricked into believing?
