Bennett Arron is an Award-Winning Writer, Comedian and BAFTA Shortlisted Documentary Maker, who was one of the first major victims of Identity theft in the UK.
Award-Winning Comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands to phone companies, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett had become the first major victim of Identity Theft in the UK. It left him penniless and homeless.
Years later, Bennett wrote, directed and presented a television Documentary on the subject. In the programme, which was critically acclaimed by all the major Press and described as ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’, Bennett proved the ease of Identity Theft by first stealing the identities of the general public and then stealing identity of the British Home Secretary. As a result of the programme, the UK Driving Licence Application Form had to be changed.
Bennett has performed as a speaker at many conferences and corporate events around the world including the International Fraud Convention in Italy, and the International Congress On Anti-Fraud & Anti-Corruption in Poland. He was also the opening keynote speaker at Auscert in Australia in front of 1500 delegates where he’s been highly praised for his funny, honest and hard-hitting talks on identity theft and fraud. He has written a book on the subject, Heard The One About Identity Theft? which has been sold worldwide.
Bennett has appeared as a Fraud Expert on Sky, Channel 4, ITV and the BBC and he received an “Unsung Hero Award” for his work in Fraud and Cyber Security.
Bennett is also a much sought-after Comedian who supported Ricky Gervais on some tour dates. As well as performing to audiences all around the UK he has also entertained audiences in Hong Kong, Amsterdam, South Africa, Greece, Italy and Australia. He has written and presented two television documentaries and three radio series. He is a presenter on BBC 3 Counties Radio and is currently starring as Morris in the Radio 4 Sitcom ALONE.
