Chinese woman arrested for faking fingerprints

squizzar (1031726) writes "A 27 year old Chinese woman was discovered to have had her fingerprints surgically swapped between hands in order to fool Japanese immigration. FTA: "It is Japan's first case of alleged biometric fraud, but police believe the practice may be widespread."

"The apparent ability of illegal migration networks to break through hi-tech controls suggests that other countries who fingerprint visitors could be equally vulnerable — not least the United States, according to BBC Asia analyst Andre Vornic."

So it seems that biometrics are not the final answer to identity fraud, I wonder if anyone will stop pushing them because of this?"
