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!

Loved this from start to finish, How on earth this man got away with this for so long is just beyond comprehension. Long may he rot behind bars!

Totally Hooked

What an amazing podcast, the interviewer was so gracious and caring to all the people telling these very sad stories.what a wicked man Hamish is. I hope he never gets out of prison so he can’t do any more harm and ruin people’s lives. Don’t blame yourself “Jane”. Be strong we all make mistakes.

Thanks.

Great interview. Loved her honesty. Whoever taught her English should be doing time with Hamish. Bizarrely she’s complimented on it.

The Aussie educational system must be shocking.
