~ fake IDs used to buy homes could further pollute the accuracy of public records ~

This could just be a fabricated, immigrant bashing story but it raises some curious possibilities for corruption of public records. A Denver television station report, Undocumented Immigrants Buying Homes With Fake IDs: Government-Backed Loans Going To Those With Phony Social Security No., claims that some undocumented alien residents are securing fabricated identification for all kinds of nefarious purposes. One of the possibilities, after obtaining a false social security number, then crafting a driver license and a W2, is to purchase real property. Now the public record reflects the name of a property owner who doesn’t exist.
