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?

Excellent listen - couldn’t stop!

Fascinating story and well documented. I really couldn’t stop listening. Interviews were very interesting and each person told their stories so well. Really have to hand it to Jane in particular. She was amazingly well spoken and articulate. Admiration for those who came forward. I hope justice is served for them all. Will recommend to friends!
