Comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to phone networks, banks and stores. Only it wasn’t him. He had become one of Britain's first major victims of Identity Theft. It left him and his pregnant wife penniless and homeless.

Years later Bennett made a documentary on the subject, in which he stole the identity of the Home Secretary. As a result of the programme Bennett was shortlisted for a BAFTA and arrested in a dawn raid by Scotland Yard.

This is a true, disturbing and very funny account of what it's like to have your identity stolen and shows the devastating consequences of proving a point in the public interest.

Enjoy reading it. Whoever you are.
