Mark Tufano 1 of 16

Identity theft is one of the most common crimes in this technological age. Protect your information so you don't fall prey to one of these crazy criminals!

While most people steal identities for the purpose of gaining control of somone's finances, Mark Tufano just wanted to be a famous actor. Specifically he wanted to be Gary Oldman, famous for his role as Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films and as Commissioner Gordon in the most recent Batman trilogy.

Tufano actually sent in a tape of himself doing an impression of Gary Oldman for a movie role that Oldman had recently turned down. Tufano did such a good job that he was in the running for the part! At least, until Gary Oldman found out about it. He tracked down Tufano and dashed his dreams of stardom.
