Who the Hell is Hamish?

What's Who the Hell is Hamish? about?

He was born Hamish Watson, a surfie dude from Sydney – but he could morph into whatever you needed him to be. The Australian’s Greg Bearup delves into the fascinating yet devastating life of a serial conman. In February 2019 Hamish was jailed 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 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?
