A lot of people know me, Paul Newton, as MentalTheft. Having done a lot of work in public speaking and corporate events, I realised that I had a mission - to help people stay safe from scammers, fraudsters and hackers.

Through magic, such as stealing PIN numbers on stage shows, I have become well known as the link between the cyber experts and people who need to know the risks.


MentalTheft is aimed at raising awareness around the threats to individuals and businesses from scammers, hackers and cybercrime. 

As a public speaker, I am known for engaging people with magic, and then hitting them with entertaining stories to educate and wow.
