Brazilian Ricardo Caesar Guedes has been charged with stealing the identity of the late American William Eriksen Lot. According to a complaint filed against Ricardo in the United States, he was able to issue a passport in the name of a Brazilian American and served as commissioner of United Airlines for 23 years.
According to the Business Insider website, Lot was born in 1974 and died in a car accident in 1979. Ricardo was born in Sவோo Paulo in 1972 and adopted Latin identity in 1998, when he successfully applied for a US passport by misusing his name.
Since then, the Brazilian has been able to renew his passport six times. As of December 2020, the State Department has identified “various indicators of fraud.” Ricardo, who served as commissioner, was able to avoid immigration procedures by becoming a “known board member” and avoiding most security checks.
In July 2021, as investigations progressed, Latin mother Debra Lynn Hayes testified and confirmed the boy’s birth and death to agents. Investigators traced the man’s identity back to Brazil through his fingerprints.
In a note to Business Insider, United Airlines said it was not with Ricardo. “United has a full verification process for new employees, which complies with federal law requirements,” the report said.
Ricardo was charged with making a false statement in his passport application, falsely impersonating a U.S. citizen, and entering the restricted area of the airport under false pretenses. Before boarding the Brazilian plane, he was arrested at the airport for grabbing a phone that read “Eric’s iPhone” on the screen. According to Business Insider, the lawyer representing Brazil declined to comment on the case.
