I have two different questions about the same topic. #1. How does one go about faking their identity (as in getting all of the forged paperwork like: birth certificates and social security cards)? Is there an actual process that is known? Searching on Google is giving me conflicting notes to go on. #2. How does one go about unraveling a fake identity? For example, what kind of thing leads loved ones/friends to discover that someone they thought they knew is really NOT who they thought they knew at all? What clues lead up to finding out? Is there any way to suspect it? Is there any agencies that can confirm it?
