A man Has Used Woman's Identity For More Than A decade
A man has used a woman’s identity for more than a decade, racking up $100,000 (£63,000) in hospital bills. Homeless man Perla Serrano stole a piece of ID belonging to Perla K 13 years ago and used it to claim a medical card in her name after dressing up. Suspicions did not arise until now as they share the same first name.
The 51-year-old was found in San Clemente, California sleeping illegally on the grass in a public area, reports a private News Channel.
The deputy on the scene assumed he was female until he spotted the man wearing a hospital wristband with a different name. Upon calling the corresponding hospital, he was informed that the woman was actually a man and had been a regular patient there.
