Presenting Work

Bennett Arron: Gangster No. 1

Bennett Arron was one of the first major victims of Identity Theft in the UK. According to the Police and credit reference agencies, he owed thousands of pounds to phone companies, banks and department stores; the problem was, it wasn’t him. This theft resulted in Bennett becoming penniless and homeless!

Many years later, Bennett wrote a comedy show about his experience. The show was critically acclaimed at the Edinburgh Festival. This led to Bennett being asked to direct and present the documentary ‘How To Steal An Identity’ for Channel 4.

In the documentary, Bennett proved through a series of stunts, how easy the crime of ID Theft really is. By first stealing the identities of the general public and then, rather foolishly, stealing the identity of the Home Secretary. The Documentary was Pick of The Week in The Guardian and The Telegraph; and was called ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’ by the TV Times. Bennett was shortlisted for a BAFTA.

As a result of information revealed by Bennett’s programme, the official UK Driving Licence application form had to be changed…

What Now?

Bennett Arron now tours the world. Telling his disturbingly true, yet funny account of what it is like to have your identity stolen; and revealing the devastating consequences of making a documentary ‘in the public interest’.

He has been the guest speaker at the International Fraud Convention in Italy; the International Congress on Anti Fraud and Anti Corruption in Poland (twice), the Security Forum in South Africa; and he was the opening keynote speaker at AUScert, Brisbane in front of 2000 delegates.

In addition to this, Bennett also speaks to Management and Customer Service Staff (satisfying compliance requirements); showing how the repercussions from clerical, computerised or face to face errors can be devastating.

All talks are followed by a Q&A session with Bennett, which is always fun.

    Your presentation was so funny…everybody loved you.


    You achieved the highest score for any speaker!

  7. IA Practitioners’ Conference

    The funniest after dinner speaker we have ever had!

  8. Mark Emmott, Director, Retail Knowledge (Media) Ltd

    It seems to me that the art of the compere is a dying art. Too many performers ‘turn their hands’ to it as if it were a simple matter. However, in practice the need for sharp awareness of the potential for dead spots, to play off situations with a constant stream of ad libs and to control an audience without presenting ‘the set’ is no mean feat and one that, as a booker, I can say is in short supply. However, in Bennett Arron we have not only a gifted comedian, but also a man who appreciates just what it takes to compere a trade awards show, such as the Fraud Awards, and have the audience loving every single minute. Outstanding!

  9. Jim Hodgkins, Managing Director, CreditExpert, Experian

    Your terrible experience as a victim of identity theft combined with your talent as a comedian enabled you to put a serious message to an audience in a very engaging, entertaining and informing way.

  10. Katie Barber, LOCOG 2012

    You gave a fantastic presentation. With a diverse workforce of many different nationalities your thought provoking talk was of much value and helped staff understand the importance of protecting their information and the true extent of how identity theft can cause so much damage.

  11. Owen Roberts, Head of Callcredit Check, Callcredit Limited

    You brought a welcome realism to the consequences and frustrations of falling victim to identity fraud while at the same time avoiding making this a tale of woe. By combining humour and storytelling flair you achieved the seemingly impossible; making financial fraud entertaining!
