From the NY Post:
Anna Vargas thought she was happily married — she just didn’t know she was “married” to four guys.
The 37-year-old Queens mom has been the victim of an identity-theft nightmare, in which a parade of mysterious creeps arranged fake marriages by using her birth certificate which she lost some 16 years ago.
Vargas had no idea what was going on — until she tried to get married in 2004 and was heartbroken to find her application for a license rejected by the City Clerk’s Office.
She was turned down after records showed she was already been “married” twice in 1996, once to a man from Mexico and once to a man from Ecuador.
It wasn’t clear why the men got married with women using her identity, but often such ID theft involves immigration scams.
