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?

Greg is a superb interviewer

Greg doesn’t make himself the star as some journalists tend to do. His sensitivity and care of Hamish’s victims is a lesson in humanity we can all learn from. Compelling series.

Wow!

I can’t believe this man was able to do this for so long without being held accountable. Thank goodness he is now where he belongs.
