Woman finds strange picture in her passport

03 July 2014, 23:07

Cape Town - Have you ever watched those movies where people’s identities are stolen? Think Face Off and The Net (classics).

According to the Daily Mail, a woman has had to endure a similar identity crisis, after she received her passport, and saw that it actually wasn’t hers – kind of.

27 year old Natalie Peel was issued with a passport with a photograph of someone else.

Every other detail was correct, expect for the image, and we all know how important it is to match the description (image) on your passport when travelling.


Since Peel submitted all the correct documents with her passport application, she now wonders where her image has landed.

What’s even worse is that she was due to jet off on a lovely trip to Spain in 6 weeks, and may have to postpone in order to make sure all is well.

Not cool Britain, not cool.
