I use dead people’s ID

Posted: June 18, 2010 in Law & Disorder

IlieAn American fraudster has been jailed for 16 months after living illegally in the UK using the identity of a teenager who had died in a car accident.

William Victor Bernson III, (wonder what happened to one and two were they real people or dead people), stole the identity of Greg Smith a fellow American who died in a car crash in the 1970s.

Bernson was able to acquire a legally issued US passport under Greg Smith’s name and a decade ago travelled to the UK under his false identity. Living in Brynderwen, Cilfynydd, near Pontypridd, Bernson worked as an online writer for several years.

The US authorities eventually discovered that the ‘Greg Smith’ passport had been fraudulently obtained and contacted the UK Border Agency’s immigration crime team.

Following an investigation which revealed how Bernson had stolen the dead teenager’s identity, he was arrested at his Cilfynydd home and charged with two fraud offences under the ID Cards Act and two offences of entering the UK by deception. He admitted all the offences and was sentenced at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court on Friday (11 June) to 16 months in prison.
Seven similar offences were admitted and taken into consideration by the court and Bernson also faces deportation to the USA at the end of his sentence.

But why assume another identification, what don’t we now about William Victor Bernson the third?
Well, have a look at this LINK


Dog sniffed out 11 illegal Iraqis

A UK Border Agency sniffer dog has foiled a bid by 11 Iraqi illegal immigrants attempting to smuggle themselves into the UK in a lorry bound for Basildon.

The Romanian registered vehicle was stopped at Calais just before 04:00 on 7 June. UK Border Agency officers found the cord that secured the trailer doors had been tampered with and a detection dog found the scent of stowaways.

Officers searched the vehicle and found 11 Iraqi men hiding among the boxes on board. The men were fingerprinted, photographed, refused entry to the UK and handed over to the French authorities.
