Your fake ID should look like you, not a celebrity

A man was arrested in Brazil because he tried opening a bank account with a fake ID. How did bank workers know it was a fake ID? The man used a picture of Jack Nicholson. Yes, the famous, award-winning actor.

The man, Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros was arrested. Police found other fake IDs on him, but only one of them had a famous face on it.

Before his arrest, police had been tracking Barros for three months, following multiple reports of fraudulent activity.

The only smart thing Barros did was use another name on the ID. Still, the picture gave it all away.

That’s how Jack — we mean Barros — became our Dumbass of the Day!
