BBC TV identity fraud documentary now online

BBC One has now broadcast the TV documentary we told you about yesterday examining the problem of identity fraud.  We’ve received a number of emails from viewers either asking questions about how they can better protect themselves online, or who just enjoyed the glimpse of what life is like behind-the-scenes at SophosLabs.

The documentary included some scary stories from victims of identity theft as well as some sensible advice on how to better protect yourself from fraudsters.  If you want to learn more, read the review of “ID Fraud: Outnumbered” in published in today’s Independent newspaper.

Anyone who missed it, can view the documentary online via the BBC’s iPlayer service for the next six days or so.  (Please note: BBC iPlayer is only accessible from computers inside the UK).
