There is a nice circularity here as many/most printers identify all documents they print (with a pattern of yellow micro-dots). So if the printer used to print fake identification documents has been purchased in a way that identify the purchaser, then there's a trail from the fraudulently printed documents. PC World may be required to demand an id card for purchase of printers, and check that it doesn't have a micro dot pattern on it!
