    How Unique are You?

    Ever wondered how unique you are? How many people in SA share your exact names and surname?

    http://www.identitynumber.org/unique-name.php

    Just for fun! Enjoy!

    I just did it and it said that there was no one in SA with my name. I know this is not true, therefore the site is unreliable.

    I checked the name of the guy who owes me money. He does not exist and does not appear od Death List either, but he died according to the death certificate I have.
    So I question their database too.

    Then I tried it including his middle name, he came up on ID list, but not in Death list. Funny enough this conman had 2 ID numbers. On some systems the one ID gets recognised and on other systems the other ID number...


    Checking my wife (also unique of course) I figured out that one even has to enter "-" if there is one in the name. Otherwise it does not find it.

    My one daughter exists, the other does not...

    Hey Houses4Rent

    Identity change is a very, very common occurrence at Home Affairs.

    People are approaching the department, informing them that they want to correct their date of birth. They often present affidavits from a family member, which confirms that the parents gave the wrong date of birth. Home Affairs will then fix the date of birth. As the date of birth (first 6 digits of an ID Number) changes, they issue a total new identity number.

    Home Affairs do not report these changes to credit bureaus, nor are they allowed to publish it in the Gazette. You actually need to know what to look for in credit reports in identifying people who changed their ID's.

    This is very commonly being done by fraudsters and people blacklisted on credit bureaus.

    How big is this? I have no idea, but I am in possession of my own database I built up where I identified ID Changes, and I have around 10,000 people with their old and new ID Numbers. I heard from a source of mine that the real number of people who changed their IDs could be in the 100's of thousands....

    I'm very unique! Only one of me in the world, besides some old actress from the 1930's who was famous in her day!

    There was a study on the popularity of names through the ages and how names filtered through the social levels of society. It's a long and interesting story but what really made me laugh was at the end of it all the author wrote about the strangest name that he ever came across. He found a person by the name of "Shithead", I kid you not. He said that he did some research and found out that the father was stoned when he filled out the birth certificate and meant to write "Shaheed"
