Houston school teacher Candida Gutierrez talks Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012, in Houston about the frustration of having her identity stolen several years ago.

She assumed Gutierrez’s persona completely, using it to get a job, a driver’s license, a mortgage and even medical care for the birth of two children. (AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)
