Leah Harris led this project.

Often identity documents are checked only once in the early stages of recruitment. CPNI wanted to make companies fully aware of how easy it is to fake a passport or driving licence to get a job; access an organisation illegally; or to cause harm to others.
We produced a drama documentary based on real-life incidents to help companies train their employees to spot forged or fake IDs. The film showed the potential consequences of giving a job and security access to someone with a fake identity. To add credibility and an 'inside' perspective to the script, we tracked down an 'ex fraudster' who had made a career from forging documents.
By contrasting good and bad practice within the drama, the film served as a practical training tool for companies and helped to shift employee's attitudes towards being more vigilant against fraud.

Successfully spreading the message

Over 7,000 DVDs have been distributed to organisations around the UK and has been incorporated into facilitated training sessions.

“Expertly communicated and in a short film really shows the vital importance of proper document checks and how to do these”
