I think it'd be easy to 'disappear.' A person can pack a bag and leave town and nobody would ever know where they'd gone.
The bigger issue would be what quality of life they'd want from the new life? Being homeless drastically reduces life expectancy because it wears a
body down physically and mentally. Being homeless in a foreign country would likely be as bad or worse.
Using a bank account would identify the location and money is always needed. Maybe pre-pay credit cards would be useful? Salt away sums of cash and
then purchase them one-by-one. Bitcoins are a little bit unpredictable in value, but a bitcoin wallet can be carried on a USB drive. A MicroSD could
be used to carry copies of the credit cards - long number and security codes on back. These could also be backed up on an email account.
These are small things that can be hidden about a person and less susceptible to being stolen or robbed.
A throwaway phone could be bought using cash and a pay-as-you-go sim card to keep the anonymity. A new life would still have times when a phone number
would be necessary.
Of course, ID would be a necessity eventually. No property, no bills, no wages etc without it. Apparently fake IDs are for sale on the internet. Seems
a quick way to get ripped off though.
If someone did disappear, I think they'd owe it to family to say they were going. A letter or something. It's emotionally cruel to leave the burden of
anxiety on them.
