    Ultimate Identity Theft

    When the family of a Harlem man began arranging his burial at a veterans' cemetery, they were shocked to learn that the body of a man with the same name, Social Security number and military honors was already there.
    Now Willie Hayes' family wants the remains of the man, who was buried in 2003, removed from Calverton National Cemetery on Long Island.
    "If he didn't serve in the Army, he shouldn't be there. It's not fair to the veterans. He stole my brother's identity," Hayes' brother, Sylvester, said in a telephone interview Monday

    This is horrible! For the family to have to deal with someone stealing their son's identity and having to battle to have the other person removed is just so sad.

    Now we have another UID to find, too. Who was the person and why did they go to such great lengths to disquise their identity?!

    Could some sort of error been made in indentifying the man with a similar name to the cemetary type officials, and the officials looked up the wrong person and gave the dead man the wrong identity by mistake? Could it be, that the dead person also belongs there, but has the wrong identity attached to them?

    I tried and tried to delete the commercials...I think they've found a new tricky way to insert them so they can not be removed. Sorry

    From the link I posted:

    "The person that is buried there now got this Willie Hayes' information and used it in his life," said Owens, who learned from Calverton officials some basic information about the other man whose date of death is listed as Nov. 8, 2003. "[The impostor] had no relatives. The city arranged for his burial."

    "They [the cemetery] called the nursing home where he died, and they found out he had two different Social Security numbers and two different dates of birth."

    They were finally able to bury the real Willie Hayes in another section. I don't know if the faker will be ousted or not.
