Episode 1 – Dirty Rotten Swindlers
Reporter: Leila McKinnon
Leila McKinnon investigates two of Australia’s most notorious fraudsters whose crimes are so grandiose, so brazen, they defy belief.
First, the intriguing story of Rajina Subramaniam - the biggest con-woman this country has ever seen. The timid Sydney accountant stole more than $45 million from one of the country’s largest corporations. Then she went on a spectacular spending spree. And, all the while, she was involved in a bizarre love triangle ... right under the noses of unsuspecting workmates.
Then there’s Dimitri De Angelis, a master manipulator who shamelessly fleeced the rich ... and the famous.
De Angelis portrayed himself as a wealthy businessman ... a mover-and-shaker with ties to European blue blood dating back centuries, but in reality he was a conman who preyed on the trust, naivety and vanity of some of Australia’s wealthiest people.
We hear from Dimitri ... and the investors whose lives he ruined.
