It’s safe to say that the chances of having the same name and the same birthday as someone else on this planet are pretty slim. Now imagine that the other person is in trouble with the law… you can be sure to experience passport problems!
Sylvie Nelson of Upstate New York has dealt with such problems first hand. Canadian born Nelson is married to American, where they live with their 2 children in Saranac Lake, NY. Since becoming a U.S. citizen in 2008, her US Passport began setting off alarms due to the fact that a person with a similar name and the same exact birthday is wanted by the State Police in DeKalb County, Georgia.
She has been ordered from her car and handcuffed on several occasions. She still can’t figure out why her passport causes alarm on some visits, but not others.
At this point, it may be a good idea to apply for a name change to avoid further passport issues.
