The Big Con : How I stole GBP30 million and got away with it Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Fraudster, swindler, conman, chancer, trickster, loveable rogue, the Southerner with more front than Southend - call him what you will. Tony Sales knew how to make money. From emptying fruit machines to cloning credit cards, the man from Greenwich made a mint. And boy did he splash the cash. Fast cars, holidays in sun-kissed millionaires' playgrounds, mixing with the great and the good. Then came the internet - the game-changer. Data became the new currency, and how he exploited it, stealing identities and splurging hundreds of thousands on the latest must-have goods. Sales never fails. Or so he thought. Tony bit off more than he could chew, and ended up having to swallow a twelve-month stretch in 2010 for passport forgery.

It would prove to be a life-changing sentence. Now he has done a Frank Abagnale Jr. and gone from poacher to gamekeeper, helping global finance giants stave off prolific cyber crooks like his former self. Only through the eyes of a criminal can you anticipate their next move.

This is the incredible true story of King Con: how he stole a fortune, lost it all, and turned his life around.
