ound ot someone in my family has an aliasnever heard of. IS it always a bad thing or can unknwon aliases be fine (criminally)


It depends on what a person uses an alias for. If he's not using it to commit fraud, then it is okay. Actors use stage names. Writers use pen names. Many people for one reason or another will use a name other than their own. It all depends on what they are doing with it.

Hope that helps.
