The Big Con Summary

The Big Con: How I stole GBP30 million and got away with it by Tony Sales

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.

About Tony Sales

Tony Sales is Britain's answer to Frank Abagnale - but in many ways his story is better. Over 20 years as a professional 'paperhanger', Sales was responsible for defrauding GBP10-GBP30 million from banks and shops. He was a confidence trickster on an industrial scale. The total cost, or 'damage' as it is known in the trade, to the corporations, finance houses and insurers 'whacked' by the former frock salesman is nearer GBP50 million. He now works for the government and major banks, advising about fraud and prevention.
