I'm not asking how to create a fake document, I'm asking how easy it would be to obtain a real SSN with a fake birth certificate.
For instance, say I've fabricated a birth certificate from another state, and I bring it to the local Social Security office, would they actually check the authenticity of the birth certificate (check the ID number from the BC) before they gave me a new SSN? Or would they just look at it and approve of my request?
EDIT: *THIS IS ALL IN A PURELY HYPOTHETICAL NATURE*
A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
