Or both?

There are lots of examples of US passports that can be found on genuine government (federal or local) websites.

In order to stop these from being used as scans of genuine passports, many of these have the person's name as "Happy Traveler".

Here's one:

I received an email this morning with the above picture as an attachment. And the email itself?

Yep, it's been copied from here:

Although that picture exists as a sample in a number of places.

I got an email from the "FBI" once:

Edit: Sorry, don't know how to embed the picture in the post!

^Use the [img] tag.

There are people named Happy, so it's likely that the lad thought that's someone's real name. How about baiting as Erica Mustermann so that the lads would use that as their character name? "Mustermann" (German for "example man") is used similarly on samples of German ID cards.

I have considered baiting with a character whose last name is Void. Naturally he would never be able to use Western Union or write a check, as when it came time for the signature.....

^ no surname, just "VOID". He could be a black metal drummer who burns down churches whenever it snows. That's a good chance to annoy your lad.

I don't believe it's unusual in West Africa to have "Happy" as a name. It's no different with "Blessing" or "Precious" and is probably related to naming habits.

There are people named Null who have run into problems when entered into databases. They end up having no name and living in the ocean south of the Bight of Benin (Null Island, though there's only a buoy there). Not as bad as a Bobby Tables problem though.
