squizzar 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?"
