    It wasn't me, it was Bennett Arron

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

    Years later, Bennett wrote, directed and presented the Television Documentary How To Steal An Identity in which he stole the identity of the Home Secretary. The Documentary was described as ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’ and was ‘Pick of The Week’ in all the major press. Bennett was subsequently shortlisted for a BAFTA – and taken in for ‘questioning’ by Scotland Yard!
