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?

Nobody heeded the adage “if it’s too good to be true, it’s not true “ the carnage of people that Hamish fooled were intelligent. Hamish must have had so much charisma and with having the ability to read the minds of humans this enabled and perpetuated his continuous lies.
Great job with the podcast thanks for the insight.
Thanks to all the strong women and men that spoke up.

Great interesting podcast

Fascinating podcast and thought that Jane spoke so well, she was eloquent and so insightful. I do agree that when Greg says ‘ you f .. Ed up and make mistakes ‘ is when he should have stepped in and said ‘ Jane, you were a victim, you were groomed and manipulated ‘
