Maybe I am wrong who knows. But it would be harder to gather information on people who live outside the law like sawyer. He does not file income tax returns, no regular job. Kate also.

Jack would of been written about in his local papers after the plane crashed, Very easy to google.

But all they said about her is that she is very happy. Very easy to make up that answer. The rest was about school and his career, easy to find out.

I was kind of thinking along jugdish's lane too, thinking maybe they wanted to see if Sawyer was going to be truthful with them.  The first thing he told them was that he was 32 or 33, right?  Before he said 35.

I noticed that bit - when he said his age Ben said how old are you really and Sawyer conceded - Ben obviously already knew that info from the file - I'm sure they'll know plenty about Kate too since she was caught.

Getting information about people is not hard to do... if you have a contact in the FBI, or simply a paralegal willing to call for you -- you can get all sorts of goodies on that person... you can contact them yourself and ask to see your own file.

There is so much electronic data about each and every one of us now that it's simple to put together someone's life... it just takes some cunningness, time and access... they must have contacts in the world that help them out...  or they have access to vital statistics databases
