The simple answer is NO, the Fake Info Generator is not illegal.
We do not condone, support, or encourage illegal activity of any kind. We will cooperate with law enforcement organizations to assist in the prosecution of anyone that misuses the information we provide or that asks us to provide illegal materials, such as forged documents or genuine credit card numbers.
All of the information we provide, including credit card numbers and national identification numbers, are fake. They can't be used to make purchases online or to obtain employment. We cannot and will not provide genuine credit card numbers or national identification numbers.
Thousands of individuals, companies, and government organizations have found useful and creative things to do with the Fake Info Generator. Here are a few examples:
Name: Names are generated by randomly pulling a first and a last name out of a database. The database was compiled from public domain sources. Odds are that someone somewhere out of the billions of people who have lived on this planet has had the same name as the one generated. However, we assure you that these names are randomly generated.
Street address: The house number is a randomly generated number. The street name is pulled from a database of plausible street names for the state/country being generated. Odds are that the generated street address is not valid.
City, state, and postal code: We have compiled a database containing hundreds of thousands of valid city, state, and postal code combinations. One of these combinations is randomly pulled from the database for each identity.
Email address: The generated email address is in the format of Generated Name@Anonymous Email Service.com.
Telephone number: We have compiled a database of valid area codes and prefixes. One of these combinations is randomly pulled from the database, and then a random number of the appropriate length is added to the end to make the phone number the correct length.
Mother's maiden name: A random name is pulled from our database of last names, and listed as the "mother's maiden name".
Birthday: The birthday is a randomly generated date.
Credit card: Our script creates a fake, but syntax valid, credit card number. The expiration date is randomly generated to be a date in the near future. We use inactive prefixes to ensure that these cards are not used for fraud. These credit card numbers do not reflect anyone's real credit card number.
National identification number: Social security numbers are generated using the pattern outlined by the Social Security Administration. Social insurance numbers are generated using the pattern outlined on Wikipedia. These numbers are completely random, and are extremely unlikely to match the generated name.
No. We may eventually make it open-source, but currently it is a closed-source, copyrighted work.
Probably. Use the contact us page to let us know what you want and we'll see what we can do.
