Top 2 Ways of Assuming New Identity

The notion of assuming a new identity has morbidly fascinated me for quite some time. What would it take to live life as someone else? I decided to do a little research half expecting the process to be extremely difficult due to every sort of documentation now being computerized. To my utter surprise, taking on a new identity isn’t that difficult once you know how to bypass restrictions and checks.


First of all, let me clarify that there’s a huge difference between forging fake documents like birth certificates, drivers license etc. and “Ghosting”. Fake documents will only get you so far! They won’t help procure new social security number or get a passport. Fake documents are mostly detected by trained and tutored eyes, so if your goal is to disappear off the map, this approach is simply not feasible. This brings me to the aforementioned term “Ghosting”.


1) Ghosting entails assuming the identity of a deceased person. It involves finding a really low key deceased person which if alive would be roughly your age by now and assuming his or her identity. This is a multifaceted approach which requires meticulous research work of selecting the deceased person who is ideally died of unnatural causes outside their state of birth, a long time ago. The death certificate in this scenario would be filed with the state in which the accident took place; the victim’s home state would be unaware of the death. From there on, the strategy involves requesting re-issuance of birth certificate pretending to be the person. Since the person has been deceased for a while, the request for a birth certificate is unlikely to arouse suspicion. Once obtained, the birth certificate paves the way for acquiring further documentation to give credence to assumed identity.


2) The next way falls under the legitimate category and involves convincing law enforcing authorities that you require a new identity. You’ll have to provide proof that your life is in jeopardy unless you are given a new identity and relocated somewhere safe. Once convinced, law enforcement agencies will provide all the relevant documents required to assume a new identity. This involves getting a new social security number too! In short, you’d be transplanted somewhere distant with no links to attach you with your past.


There are numerous websites that claim to provide ironclad new identities and untraceable documentation for a new identity. Experience has taught me that most of these are scams and never produce the desired quality of documents. So, be aware of them.

How to Spot Fake Passports – 3 Secrets Revealed

Fake passports and other phony travel documents are increasingly being used by criminals – and even common individuals – all around the world to deceive the concerned authorities and get away with petty crimes by assuming a new identity – one that does not actually exist.

Nowadays, it has become quite easy to buy passports that are fake and this trend has greatly facilitated financial crimes, identity theft, fraud, smuggling, illegal immigration and other kinds of crimes. In some instances, legitimate or original passports may be issued using entirely fake documents, which makes it all the more difficult to tell whether a passport itself is fake or not. In most cases, a mere birth certificate is required for a passport, which is often quite easy to obtain. Therefore, without access to the fake documents used for the passport, it is nearly impossible to tell whether a passport is legitimate or not.

One thing should be noted, however, that if criminals have become savvy and rely on fake passports to escape the law, authorities have also devised new ways to spot a fake passport. Here are some ways you can tell a fake passport from an original one:-

  1. Some fake passports are quite easy to distinguish – even with the naked eye; all you need to do is look for tell-tale signs. For example, a photo that has been removed and replaced with another, or control numbers with missing/altered digits that are mentioned at the bottom of the first page of the passport. Another way to spot an illegitimate passport is to simply check whether the security images are embossed on the laminate – if it is the contrary, then it is most definitely a fake passport.
  2. Some features of a legitimate passport are visible only under the beam of a laser or special kinds of lights. Therefore, it is a good idea to get a passport checked by a security professional, who can easily determine the authenticity of the passport by running it under ultraviolet lights and exposing features that are discernable by the naked eye.
  3. Watermarks, security threads, micro-line printing, plastic discs embedded in the document, and reflective coatings are other characteristics through which it can be determined if a certain passport is fake or not. For this, however, you need to be aware of the latest techniques of producing fake passports and the technology that is used to discern them, which is often easier said than done.

4 Techniques used by Identity Thieves to Steal Your Identity

We live in an age where one’s personal identity is a precious commodity, which miscreants are always ready to steal. The best way to stop these thieves from stealing yours and acquiring a new identity is to remain abreast with the techniques they employ. In this article, I will jot down the top identity theft techniques used by such lowlifes.


Dumpster Diving

Yes, you read that correctly. Identity thieves actually rummage through trash in dumpsters to get their hands on discarded pieces of paper containing financial or other personal information. Things like credit card receipts, financial statements etc., are their primary target. It’s therefore mandatory to properly dispose of these instead of just throwing them in the garbage disposal unit.


Exploiting Online Government Records

Most of the first world countries have digitalized their public records which are available online for the masses. This modernization has tremendous boons for the public, but on the downside also proves to be open hunting grounds for identity thieves. Records like marriage, divorce records, property deeds, birth certificates and obituaries etc., are highly sought after by these miscreants to forge a new identity.


Tombstone Theft

Yes, not even the dead are safe from identity theft. This method is tied in with the aforementioned exploitation of online government records. Personal information of the deceased like date of birth, full name and family information can easily be extracted from online or in newspaper obituaries. Identity thieves go as far as posing an insurance company agent of the deceased to con funeral homes into giving up more information. Once the information is obtained, it’s used in forging a new identity which can be used in a number of fraudulent activities like procuring loans from bank etc. In some cases, the newly forged identity or the raw personal data of the deceased is sold online or in black markets to the highest bidder.


Old Fashioned Stealing

This is the oldest method of identity theft on the list. The miscreant steals wallets, personal mail and other documentation, which contains personal credentials of a person. The most desired documents for stealing are: pre-approved credit offers via letter, tax information, bank and credit card statements etc. It’s also not uncommon for the lowlifes to bribe or blackmail employees of organizations to gain access to personal information. Sometimes, disgruntled or financially challenged employees of organizations also indulge in identity theft as they have access to information like ATM card numbers, credit card numbers and PIN codes. This is known as “insider theft”.

Top 3 Secrets of Fake Passport Forgers Revealed

Being found in possession of a fake passport is considered a serious felony in almost every country and is punishable by imprisonment and heavy fines. But that doesn’t stop miscreants from forging and procuring them. The ability to detect fake passports and ID cards is a specialized skill set, which requires training and specific equipment. However, there are some telltale signs which can be easily spotted even by untutored eyes, but that is only possible where the level of forgery isn’t that high! What piques our curiosity is how do forgers actually go about creating a fake passport? Let me enlighten you with that.

1) The most difficult to spot fake passports are usually those genuine and valid passports which have gone under extensive manipulation to customize them for the intended miscreant. These passports are procured by stealing or purchased from a collaborator. Once obtained, the picture and biographical data is altered. Usually, the way to detect such passports is to check the laminate for embossed security images. Most immigration check counters are equipped with Ultra violet lamps, magnifying glasses and have specimen copies of real passports for comparison.

2) Some forgers go to great lengths to ensure that the authenticity of their forged passport is impeccable. This includes hoodwinking the issuing authority by submitting false identity documents such as birth certificates etc. Birth certificates in most countries are provided by a number of sources like state authorities, hospitals and religious institutions. There’s no distinguishable aspect to them like fingerprint or a photo and hence is a gaping loophole when it comes to establishing someone’s identity. When a passport is issued based on false documents, it’s almost impossible to identify, as it is the real deal.

3) Internet savvy forgers have various convincing ways to coax the requisite details of a passport from an unsuspecting victim. These mostly involve free immigration scams where the victims are convinced that they’ve won free visa to a foreign country. The counterfeiters then proceed with asking for scanned copy of the passport so that the visa can be processed. Once a victim sends them the scanned copy, his/her identity is stolen and its credentials are used to forge a passport for someone else.

The technology of counterfeiting passports is constantly evolving and counterfeiters are finding new, innovative and hard to detect devious ways of furthering their trade. To counter this, governments have adopted various stringent methods such as computerizing the entire passport issuance procedure. This allows them to run a background check on suspicious looking passports. The immigration control personnel are being provided intense training via multimillion dollar programs that teach them to readily spot a fake passport.
