Undercover: Nailing the Fraudsters

Undercover: Nailing the Fraudsters

Series 1 - Episode 6



Paul Connolly turns his attention to identity theft, meeting a criminal middleman who claims to be able to provide him with an authentic national security card and a driver's license belonging to an Eastern European who looks similar to Paul. With these items in hand, the investigative journalist takes on the real owner's identity and tries to open a UK bank account. West Midlands police recount the story of a man who murdered a life-long friend after stealing his identity and taking out an insurance policy on his life, and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Authority explains its efforts to crack down on driving test impersonators, who sit tests for others, then hand the licenses they have earned to rogue, unqualified drivers.
