A terrible thing happened to Candida Gutierrez when a thief stole her wallet and then proceeded to steal her identity. He assumed her persona, getting a driver license in her name, opening bank accounts and even medical care for two children–all in her name. It even got worse when the identify thief claimed she was Candida and Candida was not Candida! When the real Candida attempted to become Candida the other person claimed that it was HER identify that was being stolen!
The other Candida refused to back down and fought and fought to become Candida. An interesting case. How do I prove that I am I and not You? Have we entered a world in which one day a robot will claim to be me and that I am the robot? Who knows, we may awake one day to discover THEY have become us and we have become THEM!
