Photo Replacement

Photo Replacement is forgery where the owner’s original face photo is replaced with (mostly) the fraudster’s face photo.

Photo Replacement technique is prevalent when fraudsters want to physically visit a point of sale or service where customer service representatives are likely to examine the match between their face and the photo on the ID facility.

Photo Replacement can be done either physically or digitally depending on the type of ID document. Modern ID documents typically have the owner’s face photo printed and not attached.
