The Association for Equality (Foreningen Ligeværd) focuses on young people with special needs. They are largely exposed to identity theft, where people, for example, defraud them of their online banking details and take out loans or make them transfer money and the like. The Association for Equality had been given money by the Victim Foundation (Offerfonden) to make a game with the main purpose of informing the players about identity theft. At the same time, it should provide an opportunity to talk about their own experiences with identity theft.
CATCH THE IDENTITY THIEF is designed as a very classic board game. You roll a die, move around on a board, and even though everyone has to work together to stop the identity thief before he runs off to a palm island, one player can end up with the most points and win the game. That way the game tends to be played many times and "just for fun". Therefore, the pedagogical points about what an identity thief does, and what you can do if you are exposed to it, are repeated several times - something that is particularly important for the target group.
CATCH THE IDENTITY THIEF was released in the autumn of 2019 and is now being played at The Association for Equality's clubs and in their member schools. The game is an element of a larger effort and is made with support from OFFERFONDEN.
