NEW YORK — A New York City woman is trying to unwind an identity fraud in which someone used her birth certificate to arrange bogus marriages to at least three men from other countries.

Anna Vargas found out about the fraud when she applied for a marriage license in 2004 and was turned down on the grounds that she was already married.

Vargas tells the New York Post she was still able to get married by moving the ceremony to another city, but her problems weren't over.

One of her supposed husbands, from Ecuador, sued for divorce in 2009, before realizing she wasn't the same person he wed in 1996.

A judge nullified two of the marriages in January. Vargas is still working to erase another one on New York's Long Island.
