He was born Hamish Watson, a surfie dude from Sydney - but he could morph into whatever you needed him to be. Hamish is due to be sentenced to jail in early 2019 for swindling a handful of victims out of more than $7m. But these crimes are just the final pages in a resume too thick to staple; for decades he's duped victims in the US, Canada, Britain, Hong Kong and Australia. How did he do it? How did he evade authorities around the world for so long and what's he done with all those tens of millions of dollars he stole?

Jane’s interview too painful to listen to

Leading questions by the journalist are answered by a girl who fits more “intelligent” words into her answers than are necessary. If I hear “fantastical”, “physicality” or “in its entirety” anymore I’ll scream.

The narrator

Appreciated how sensitive the narrator was during this investigation. My thoughts with those affected.

Jane

A story so full of depth and despair that touched my soul. I cried. We all live very different journeys in our vulnerable teens and I know first hand how you can be naive to those who should be looking out for you. You are a strong woman and should be proud of the way you are owning your story for this part of your life. May the rest of your life story be full of happiness and triumphs.
