In addition to the answers below, remember that in some places in the world it's very easy to get a "legitimate" ID/passport with any name you want. You then use that ID to receive Western Union transfers, or even open a bank account with your IBAN linked to this ghost person. Last time I checked, fake European passports are going around 1500 euros each. For a potential revenue of tens of thousands of euros, spending 1.5k for a fake passport isn't a big deal. That's what online drug sellers use.
