Tamper-proof Birth, Marriage Death Certificates on Security Paper

Tampering of birth certificates for many people to cheat the real age or name in applications is rampant. Forging to marriage certificates also happen to many people for marrying again or faking a death certificate for pension and other fraudulent claims is fast becoming hard to do.

Local civil registrars will no start issuing the certificates using tamper-proof security papers made by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). This means copies of civil registry documents will be assured of clear and secure copies.

The certificates are required for the issuance of passports, visas, and government examinations.

Note that using security papers can make it hard for "recto university" people who make a living by making fake certificates lose business. But many people are so easy to fool that I think it ain't so.

The government should also control scums inside local civil registries and NSO who can alter data on registries for a fee...i have a friend who knew someone inside NSO who does that...change name, age, birthday, without court order...for a fee of course :(
