Florida police have collared this cretin and found a treasuretrove of "stuff" at his home.

Who is Roy Antigua? Tampa cops seek help tracking down serial imposter

This wanker is a real hard core case.
Can I take a wild guess and say people will start coming out of the woodwork to say they were financially defrauded by this guy. This guy looks to be very well organised with multiple fake identities. The most obvious reason for doing that is if you're making a living out of being a conman.

What a top bloke! Good effort I say.

Blagging you way into a hopital to deliver a baby!? That's a hardcore way to see some snatch.

i'm with you on this one.

when he gets into one of those stupid-stuff-you've-done top trumps conversations/pissing contests with his mates he's going to have a pretty strong hand.

i'd love a fake CIA pass.

I'm still a little in shock to see the length of waltism some people will go to. I sat reading ARRSEpedia's 'Infamous Walts' section yesterday and could not believe it. This kind of thing seems to happen fairly frequently too?!

Some people are fucking idiots.

What uniforms do CIA and Secret Service wear?? Unless it's the Black Armani suit, short-sleeve white shirt with tie and sunglasses!

Don't be. In civvy street at least, careers are made (& less often broken) on this sort of malarky.
Seen a senior public servant go down over this sort of thing first hand. He got the sack as well.
Thing is - his CV, his life in fact was entirely fictional and had he not been found out probably would have been a minister in the state government within a few years.
How many get away with it I wonder.

That's seriously fucked up. I worry about the mindset of them, delusional fantasies.

Funny enough, the ones that fake being in P coy - they all say '2 PARA' - it's never 3 or 4. Hmm.

Most of them I'm afraid.

It's too easy for them, especially the higher grade public school types. They probably all get together at posh old boy reunions and make up each others cvs, using pater and pater's chums as referees. A lot like politicians do.

If you're offered a job with most companies, they generally get references from the last two companies you've worked at. So your CV could be complete bollocks from before those two employers.

Most companies don't generally check on qualifications either - I have a degree in materials science. I have never been asked to prove it. Employers assume if you are knowledgeable about a subject, you must be qualified in it.

I've seen studies saying that 25% of all CV's have significant or serious inaccuracies in them.

Not true, I always say 3 PARA... or sometimes the covert, deadly secret 'X PARA'

Oh hey, I was going to join them but I was headhunted for 'them' instead.
