Bennett Arron

Bennett Arron is an award winning writer, and stand up comedian and speaker on Identity Theft, Fraud and GDPR.

Several years ago, Bennett was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to phone companies, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett was the first major victim of Identity Theft in the UK. The crime left him penniless and homeless.

Years later, Bennett wrote, directed and presented the Channel 4 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! As a result of the programme, the Driving Licence Application Form had to be changed.

Bennett now tours the world telling his disturbingly true yet funny account of what it’s like to have your identity stolen and revealing the devastating consequences of making a documentary ‘in the public interest’. He was the Guest Speaker at the International Fraud Convention in Italy, the International Congress on Anti-Fraud in Poland, the Security Forum in South Africa and he was the opening keynote speaker at AUScert, Brisbane in front of 2000 delegates.

Bennett has written and book on his experiences called “Heard The One About Identity Theft?” and was recently given an “UNSUNG HERO AWARD” for his work in Fraud and Cyber Security
