I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

If someone steals my identity, being careful not to alert me to the fact, then applies for an ID card in my name before I do, her biometric details with then be attached to my identity: she will have the ultimate proof (eg the ID card) that she is me. So... when I am called to apply for my ID card, I will be deemed a fraud because my name is already attached to her biometric details.
Can one of the people who seems to think ID cards are OK please explain to me how, then, I can prove I, not she, am the real me, given that she has the absolute proof ie the biometric ID card with MY name?
These cards will cause big trouble, with people being left, in effect, without any official identity.
