    It wasn’t me, it was Bennett Arron

    Several years ago, award-winning writer and stand-up comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to phone companies, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett had become one of the first major victims of Identity Theft in the UK. This theft resulted in Bennett becoming penniless and homeless.

    Years later, Bennett wrote, directed and presented the Channel 4 Television Documentary How To Steal An Identity. In the programme, which was described as ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’ and was ‘Pick of The Week’ in all the major press, Bennett proved the ease of the crime by stealing the identity of the Home Secretary. He was subsequently arrested by Scotland Yard and shortlisted for a BAFTA!
