United Kingdom : British Visitor's Passport (1990)

A British Visitor's Passport issued for Mr. Paul Everton. It was issued in Croydon by the Crown Post Office.

According to Martin Lloyd, this document is highly likely a geniune copy but acquired by way of impersonation. The holder seems unable to make his signature 'properly'.

The West African nationalities (Nigeria, Ghana,) were heavily represented in any fraud involving impersonation of the genuine holder.  The technique was to obtain from the Records Office a copy of the birth certificate of somebody born in the UK. This facility is available to anybody upon payment of a fee. The fraudster then applied for a BVP in this identity but with his own photograph.

BVP issued in Croydon in 1990 and which was obtained by a West African impersonating the correct owner.
