Identity Theft In Cayo

A Santa Elena woman has become the victim of a serious case of identity theft.

Sandra Andreina found that her identity had been stolen when she went to the Social Security Board office in Santa Elena Town to apply for her first social security card. That's when she was told by the registry officer that she was already registered and already had a social security card! Garcia - still in disbelief - was shown the card and while it carried her name, the picture on it was of her longtime friend and former roommate, Dianna Estrada - who had lived with her 2009.

Garcia concluded that Diana stole her birth certificate and secured the Belizean ID in her name. Police are investigating that case at Social Security where the same Dianna Estrada allegedly also got a Voter's ID using Andreina's name. We're still trying to get details on that case….

Live and let live
