I wonder how criminals manage to pull this off without getting caught? You need to direct deposit CERB to a bank tied to your fucking social insurance number. So you need to create a fake identity in order to open a bank account and not have it trace back to you. Or you need a dumb ass money mule to take the fall for you while ensuring that the money mule doesn't know your real identity. Or ensuring the money mule doesn't snitch.

Even when I've opened bank accounts online as opposed to a physical branch, you need to put down name, address, date of birth, phone number, social insurance number. Often times they require you to make a cheque deposit from another institution in your name or link your online banking from another bank in order to verify your identity. Or they make you take a picture of your driver's license.

I know where you can buy fake IDs, social insurance numbers and that sorta thing with bitcoin. But you have to fool your bank into thinking that it's legit.
