A New York City bride discovered that someone used her birth certificate to arrange bogus marriages to at least three men from other countries.
Anna Vargas found out about the fraud when she applied for a marriage license in 2004 and was turned down on the grounds that she was already married.
Vargas said that she was still able to get married by moving the ceremony to another city, but her problems weren’t over.
One of her supposed husbands, from Ecuador even sued for divorce in 2009, before realizing she wasn’t the same person he wed in 1996.
A judge nullified two of the marriages in January.
Vargas is still working to erase another one on New York’s Long Island. She is also investigating whether there have been any other marriages which she doesn’t know about.
