It's possible the scammer has replaced the picture in the passport of the original victim. This one has been used before.

The scammer is actually using the name "David Cyril Hawcroft" as a deceased engineer or other type of person. We've been informed that the photo is NOT the picture of the person who actually sent his passport copy to a scammer. The photo has been overlayed onto an Australian passport template, and it is a different person.

Passport is expired but still being used in a current next of kin scam. The photo may be the original with a new name pasted in.

Hi all,

Hmmm... may I post as an unregistered user? Ok. This passport is definitely not stolen! It is a fake passport. Just take a look at the numbers in the reading zone: You can see AUS590924 and then the checkdigit 2! But it has to be 5! The same with the expiry date: 070404 and then 0. But there has to be the checkdigit 3!
