March came from nothing. Now, he’s the 1%. He made his fortune in oil and cryptocurrency. He’s sweet, handsome and charming. It’s hard to believe he’s still single. Only, it isn’t.
Because March isn’t real. He’s a border hopping Canadian con artist who’s tricked women and men out of over a million dollars.
He thought he was untouchable, but now he’s messed with the wrong women.
From Pink Moon Studio, this is Catch Him if You Can. The story of Marcel Vautour, his survivors' real time crusade to catch him, and the broken legal system that’s allowed him to get away for over 20 years – told in 7 parts.
Written and produced by Emilia King and Maggie Reid.

The Switch Up
Emilia and Maggie share an update on everything that has happened since Season One first aired. This crazy whirlwind starts with Kyra, a single mom in British Columbia, who’s working multiple jobs to build a better life for her kids. Then, she meets a man named Frenchie. Her tip sets off a sequence of events that bring us closer to justice than we've ever been.
A live tip from Toronto social worker, James, leads us to suspect that Marcel may be at a drop-in centre in the west end of the city. While her newborn baby naps, Maggie covertly investigates to confirm if it’s actually him. The pursuit intensifies and tensions are high. Will we finally be able to catch him?
Told You So
In October 2022, we get the call we've been all been waiting for. Marcel André Vautour is in cuffs in Drummondville, Quebec. Will he finally be brought to justice?
Emilia and Maggie give updates on the case since learning that Marcel escaped from rehab. They sit down with Jordan Heath-Rawlings of The Big Story podcast to break down the complexities of prosecuting serial fraud, how the justice system could do better and what comes next.
Andréa Speranza, a fire captain from Nova Scotia, meets March Hebert by chance at Tim Hortons in August 2018. He’s successful, charming and coincidentally shares her exact same life goals. She isn’t looking for a relationship, but over the course of a few months he wins her over.
In spring 2018, life was putting Kym Nicholson, a registered nurse from British Columbia, through the ringer. She decides to travel across Canada by train to visit family and clear her head. On the train she meets a man named Andre. He’s wealthy, flirty, fun and seems like the perfect distraction from her troubles. New episodes launching every two weeks! Ep 3 coming April 12th!
Rooting for the bad guy
Interesting story & ok podcast. The acting is not as bad as some say but can be a little distracting and funny. They make you want to root for the bad guy lol.
Ditch the dramatization
I really like the concept of this pod because I find scams psychologically fascinating. I wd like to see this pod succeed. But first they should ditch the hokey dramatization. It's a distraction and is unnecessary because a quick narration of the scene wd do nicely.
I really wanted to stick with this one, because I find these types of stories absolutely fascinating. But this podcast is so very tiresome. I just can’t do it anymore. I barely made it through the first three episodes and only with a lot of fast forwarding. The cringy ‘acting’, the insipid writing of mostly unnecessary scenes, the woman-power-all-men-are-awful crap, the stilted narration…all of it. I just can’t. 😣
