VANISH

People who think they are very clever usually end up running away from something, and are in need of a new life.

 

Locating a New Identification: The best way is to choose an identity of a person who died very young. Some hustlers use the obituary section in old newspapers found at libraries. Once they find someone about their age and sex, they take down all the pertinent information.

 

Some info like parents names and mother’s maiden name can also be found at the U.S.. Census Bureau, hospital records, or church baptismal records.

 

Birth Certificate: They file for a duplicate birth certificate to replace the one they have “lost.” It never arouses suspicion because the lack of an original birth certificate is so common in this country. The U.S. Passport office provides information on how to request a certified copy for a fee. After getting the birth certificate, everything opens up to them, all under a new name.

 

Driver’s License: Once they get the birth certificate, they go to the Department of Motor Vehicles and get a driver’s license.

 

Passport: They easily obtain it once they have proper identification and a birth certificate.

 

Social Security Number: They never use the same social security number twice. Every time they are asked they make up a new one.

 

Where They Hide: They go to big cities. It’s easier for them to stay lost there than settling in a small town with nosy neighbors. There are also more job opportunities, public transportation, etc.

 

Finding Work: To build references, they do low-paying or part-time jobs. If they have valuable skills, they free-lance their services until they build up enough references to get a decent full-time job. They avoid jobs that are similar to previous employment. They usually seek temporary agencies and temporary work because they eventually lead to a full-time job. They avoid all jobs that put them in the public eye, like entertainment, bartending, hotel desks, etc.

 

Job Reference: Usually no more than two or three job references are required to get work. The hustlers get two or three mailbox addresses with fake company

names. They write their own letters of reference on letterheads printed with the fake names.  If they are asked for a phone number, they give a friend’s number who poses as a former employer, or they use a secretarial service that always says the person is not available, and will take a message. If in need of educational credentials, they either buy the degrees by mail order or they go through the educational process to get a new set of degrees and diplomas.

 

Disguise: To become unrecognizable, they try to become the opposite of what they were. They usually change their hair and the type of clothing; gain or loose weight; wear or remove eyeglasses; take on smoking or quit; grow or shave a beard. They hide scars, marks and tattoos with makeup or hair. Sometimes they change the way they walk by placing objects inside one shoe.  In extreme cases they get cosmetic surgery to change their features. They adjust their speech or change their accent or dialect to fit in with their new surroundings.

 

In all cases they are chameleons who avoid attracting any attention to themselves. The successful ones never have their photos taken and are careful

with paper trails (always use mail boxes for all correspondence).  Also, they totally separate themselves from their original existence. And most of all, they never reveal their secret to anyone because that makes them vulnerable to apprehension or blackmail.

 

One, Two, Three, on Billy Hiding Behind that Door Ever met someone you wished you knew more about but didn’t want to get a private investigator involved?  The full name, last known address, birth date, and social security number can easily and legally be obtained. There are many cross-reference systems available at the library that have the names and addresses listed. A simple form letter and a small fee to the Register of Voters, the county courthouse, and property tax division, will provide a data search allowing you complete access to divorce decrees, garnishments, child support, mortgage holders, and just about anything else. These records should satisfy your initial goal, but hey, why stop here?

 

From the Motor Vehicle Dept. you can get moving violations, accident records, height, weight, sex, and color of eyes and hair. The last bit of information you will need to finish this phase is a T.R.W. report.  T.R.W. is a national credit information company. For a small fee you can access their data base system. It

is so complete that often times they know more about people than the people know about themselves.

 

You should now have a pretty good official profile of this person. Your next step is to make inventive phone calls to the numbers that have crossed your path. Talk to ex-fellow employees, school mates and family members. Soon you will have enough information to write a book about this person. Access to information in other countries is a little different but the same strategic formula works.

 

Pick Pocket Psychology

At some carnivals and state fairs thieves stand by a “Beware of Pickpockets” sign. They know that guys will read it and instinctively feel for their wallet. This alerts them to the placement of the money. They will then bump the victim once to make him grab his pocket. The wallet will still be there, and the guy will feel embarrassed about how paranoid he just acted. Now he’s psychologically set up for the real heist.
