Terrifying Ad Shows How Easy It Is To Steal Your Identity Online
By Erwan Xiao, 10 Jul 2013
Produced by Antwerp-based communications agency Duval Guillaume for Febelfin, Belgium’s financial sector federation, the terrifying ‘See How Easily Freaks Can Take Over Your Life’ video urges for increased caution when banking online.
The video, part of Febelfin’s ‘Safer Internet Banking’ campaign, follows a sinister-looking man as he seemingly ‘befriends’ a man named Tom on Facebook, and proceeds to steal Tom’s financial data through a phishing scam.
What is truly terrifying is that the thief does not stop there. He goes on to steal Tom’s identity. Using latex makeup to change his appearance, the thief goes around Bruges, greeting Tom’s friends and signing for expensive purchases.
The video ends with the thief saying, “Your whole life is online and before you know it, someone like me takes it over.”
