A famous portrait of Jack Nicholson adorns a fake ID with the name Joao Pedro dos Santos, a fake ID used by Brazilian Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros to open a fraudulent bank account. Needless to say, the man was caught by police.

Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, a 41-year-old man from Brazil, was arrested after he presented a fake ID bearing a photo of Jack Nicholson, the Oscar-winning actor, while trying to open a bank account in the Brazilian city of Recife.

The Nicholson photo that Barros selected couldn’t have been more obvious. It's a famous portrait taken by renowned celeb photographer Martin Schoeller which has been published in several magazines, and exhibited in museums worldwide.
