    CA - Identity thief who stole name of kidnapped child gets prison

    OAKLAND, Calif. This identity thief probably wishes he had picked somebody else's name to steal.

    Behzad Mofrad will serve time in prison after pleading guilty in November to passport fraud.

    Mofrad admitted to taking the name of Kevin Andrew Collins -- a name he found on an online directory of missing children. Investigators say the 40-year-old East Bay used the name to try to establish a bogus identity.
    Mofrad didn't make a connection with Kevin Collins, but it did with some other people.

    "A State Department clerk remembered the name when Mofrad used it to apply for a passport."

    From your link above.

    This is another example of an individual who was alert while doing their job!
    Hopefully this will be a big red flag and all agent will be watching for this con.
