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?

Team Jane

Having experienced something similar (to a much smaller degree) I just want to say how impressed I was with Jane’s honestly and maturity at only 23 years old. Jane if you are reading this- you seem like an incredible person who deserves happiness and peace. This is only a short chapter of your life. I’m rooting for you!

Revictimizing the victim

The “bonus” interview of Jane is repulsive. The interviewer is just as much of a creep as Hamish. Completely infects every previous episode. “Hey, can you describe in excruciating detail every aspect of your abuse at the hands of this man? Oh, you’re reluctant to? I’m going to press harder!” Unethical. And just plain disgusting.

Mostly Good

Overall, great podcast. However, the audio quality on the interview in episode 10 is unlistenable. Podcast would be better without it.
