Wedding Scams

How would you like to wake up one day and find that you are married to a foreigner? This actually happened to a woman in California.

This is why you must protect your identity and be aware of your surroundings at all time. A citizen of Nigeria claimed he was married to a US citizen when filling out the paperwork for his green card. He turned in a fake marriage certificate to the Alameda County records office and also to US immigration. His plan was foiled when the so-called wife discovered her name on a marriage certificate on file at the county courthouse needless to say she was not a happy newlywed and immediately call the authorities. The man was arrested and later tried and convicted of immigration fraud, and identity theft. This situation just points out the importance of constantly monitoring your bank accounts and public records to make sure your name doesn't appear on some bogus paperwork. This is actually the first time I heard of a scam like this remember the con men are always out there thinking of new ways to get over.
