The RomCON - Ep 1 Conning the Con

    • True Crime

Episode one, The RomCON, takes us back to where it all began...

One swipe to the right. One small, seemingly insignificant flick of the index finger.....
Meet my sister, Emma as she takes us back to the fateful day when she swiped right on the profile of Andrew Thomson.

Dr Sophie Muir, Clinical Psychologist joins us, shining a retrospective light on Emma's story and highlighting the red flags along the way
