How far will you go to obtain a job? Others will take their desperation to greater heights to the point that they would take someone else’s identity, a deceptive scheme that qualifies for charges of identity theft. Claudia Camey de Perez, a native of Guatemala, was caught of this felony by submitting counterfeited documents that contained someone else’s identity in order to secure a job position.

Camey De Perez learned that you cannot literally apply the old-fashioned principle of “fake it ‘til you make it” to get a job or else, the authorities will catch you. On March 29, 2022, Homeland Security Investigations was informed about evidence that there are certain individuals who fabricated their Social Security cards during an initial application to get hired for a job. Before entering the final stage of employment with their prospective employers, the applicants were required to show up at the Gulf Coast Safety Council. The Gulf Coast Safety Council renders safety courses to applicants who are seeking employment with companies related to petrochemical processing plants. De Perez turned up at the Gulf Coast Safety Council office in Louisiana to finish the safety course and finalize her employment process with the company she applied for.

Camey De Perez did not make it after her identity theft scheme was exposed. She submitted a fraudulent United States Social Security Card that bears the name of another person who is a United States citizen. She presumed the identity of the person and claimed the United States Social Security number presented on the card as her own in hopes of getting employed. The authorities unearthed the malicious intentions behind her scheme and she was arrested by the authorities.

Similar to De Perez’s case of identity theft, another Guatemalan woman, Maria Julia Diaz-Ventura, pleaded guilty to charges of one count of unlawful use of an identification document and illegal reentry into the United States. She was deported in December 2017 but returned illegally to the United States in 2018. Upon her return, she used a fraudulent social security card containing someone else’s name and social security number to accomplish tax and employment documents, a ruse that was identical to De Perez’s scheme. Diaz-Ventura was sentenced by the court to spend nearly 4 months in federal prison to face the penalties of her crime.

Camey de Perez, also pleaded guilty to the charges filed against her. Chief Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown sentenced her to one year of probation for illicitly using a Social Security number which violates the regulations of the law decreed under Title 42, United States Code, Section 408(a)(7)(B).
