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?

To Jane

Jane - you are an eloquent, curious, emotionally intelligent, self aware, impressive young woman and the world is your oyster. Forgive yourself. Go get ‘em.

Good podcast but Jane interview Irritating

I don’t think the comments regarding Jane’s interview are warranted. He’s not blaming ‘Jane’. To HER it was a mistake. Of course it wasn’t her fault but I’m sure if she could change it she would. Maybe he was a little less sensitive than is desirable, he wasn’t unkind though.

I was more irritated with Jane, it sounded like she studied the dictionary before her interview to come across more intelligent. Sounded like she was trying to get a book deal or trying too hard in a job interview.
