Second impostor found at Stanford

"Stanford University officials, for the second time this week, found themselves Friday dealing with an interloper who has managed to pass herself off as a member of the university community for months.
The latest incident involves a young woman, identified as Elizabeth Okazaki, who essentially made herself at home in the campus' Varian Physics Laboratory, sometimes spending the night there, using the computers and attending seminars, according to students.
University officials say they are taking steps to keep Okazaki off campus. Some students say the situation has been going on since at least 2004.
'I thought she was just another grad student, but then you talk to her and you realize that perhaps she doesn't really know what's going on,' said Surjeet Rajendran, 24, a graduate student in physics. 'She pretended to know physics, but it was very obvious that she didn't have any idea what she was talking about.' "
