Yes

 

I understand they are legally obliged to.

Not only could you son be defrauding Optus phones obtained with fake IDs are used by criminals and terrorists.

Why did you son use fake IDs?

Hi

In your original post you said your son took fake ID.

Even if he took bona fide ID if the shop has any doubts I believe they must call the police.
