How I became the worlds’ biggest fraudster
If you think City fraud is something new, by warned! It all began with Austin Bidwell. Bidwell’s ambition was to pull off a £1million sting at the expense of none other than the Bank of England. And in his time £1million was worth £100million today.
Bidwell, an American still in his twenties, was convinced his elaborately complex plot would work. And it almost did.
Bidwell took the primrose path from Wall Street to Newgate via the Old Bailey, where his trial caused an international sensation. “The most important case in living memory”, The Times called it.
Among the world’s great crooks Bidwell ranks with Horatio Bottomley, Ivan Kreuger the match king, and Robert Maxwell. And his story is more amazing than any of theirs.
It is a story in which the women are sexy, the stakes are huge, the men are desperate, and their courage is reckless and daunting.
By Austin Bidwell.
