How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Investigators Use Phony Documents and Fool Passport and Postal Workers 4 Out of 4 Times

We assumed in the Post 9/11 era the government had taken security measures to assure we were safer. After reading this story ask yourself: Do I feel safer?

Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON – Using phony documents and the identities of a dead man and a 5-year-old boy, a government investigator obtained U.S. passports in a test of post-9/11 security. Despite efforts to boost passport security since the 2001 terror attacks, the investigator fooled passport and postal service employees four out of four times, according to a new report made public Friday.

The report by the Government Accountability Office, Congress’ investigative arm, details the ruses:

_One investigator used the Social Security number of a man who died in 1965, a fake New York birth certificate and a fake Florida driver’s license. He received a passport four days later.

_A second attempt had the investigator using a 5-year-old boy’s information but identifying himself as 53 years old on the passport application. He received that passport seven days later.
