Will the real Damian McMeekin please stand up

Catch this hilarious video of Damian McMeekin, ANZ's global head of security having his identity stolen by ABC TV's Julian Morrow at the annual Combatting Identity Fraud summit in Australia earlier this month.

As McMeekin is called to give his presentation a wigged-out Morrow beats him to the lectern and starts lecturing the audience on the perils of ID theft. Asked to stand aside for the real McMeekin, Morrow calls him a fraud and asks for his wife's maiden name as proof of ID.

As stunts go, it's up there with the Yesmen's hoax prentation at IBC Informa's annual international payments conference in London two years ago, when the more gullible among the audience were conned into signing licenses for a dubious 'Acceptable Risk Calculator' and posing for pictures with a life-size golden skeleton.
