They do not verify the information you give them.  They take the sheet
of paper and give you a card.  Make up a name, address, and phone
number.  If they ever discover the fraud (not in a legal sense) and
disable the card, so what?  Get another one.

men; some he makes slaves, others free."  --Heraclitus (Kahn.83/D-K.53)
