What I mean is real danger

There are a few people in various countries who can bring harm to people if they have the photo, name and birthday.

They do it for money.

You're  right, i think you mean identity theft and there is a lot of it.  I used to get a spam/scam mails but i had some fun with them chasing the sources and posting their info on the internet to warn others.

Nigeria is a big source for scammers and i know of a few women who lost a lot of money by being conned.
