    • To apply, you will need to provide biographical information covering basic personal details (e.g. name, address, date of birth). When you enrol, biometric information (e.g. facial image, fingerprints) will be recorded. This will allow your identity to be checked by confirming what you tell us. This is to prevent people attempting to defraud the system.

"Defraud" seems an odd word to use here. Doesnt it mean get money or something valuable from someone by trickery? But we're not getting anything of value here, we're just being forced through an unwelcome and intrusive bureaucratic process.

Should I be thinking in terms of how desirable green cards are? Or is the idea that life will be made so miserable for non-ID-cardholders that we'll desperately want one, and do anything to get one including defraud the system?
