'Dead' man spends four years fighting to prove he is alive

Claude Pretorius has been working to correct the bureaucratic error since 2006, when he discovered, while applying for a passport, that the Department of Home Affairs had listed him as dead.
"They told me that I could not apply for a passport as I am deceased," the Johannesburg man told the The Star newspaper.Mr Pretorius said he got a sworn affidavit from police affirming that he is alive and was issued a new identity number, enabling him to buy a car.
But the problem resurfaced last year when he tried to register the car with the traffic department.
"I found out that my status has again been changed to deceased," he said.


It gets worse,click the link at the top to see how much worse it gets.
Hopefully the publicity this story generates will help him in his quest to prove that he is indeed alive.

I would be pissed. I would tell them if they really wanted me to kick the bucket already then where the hell is all of the insurance money I'm supposed to get from dying?

To be honest as soon as I read this I thought of the movie hackers. The police cheif calls in about something and then says, "I'M WHAT?!"
