Sometimes a criminal deserves respect , for me this is one of those times.
Convicted fraudster Neil Moore had been on remand at Wandsworth prison in London where he hatched an ingenious plan to regain his freedom , he got hold of an illicit mobile phone inside the prison and set up a fake email account from which he pretended to be a senior court clerk authorising his own release , prison staff acted on the order and released him on 10th March 2014.

The escape was only discovered when solicitors turned up to interview him three days later only to discover he was no longer there , Moore handed himself in a few days later.

It seems Mr Moore is a bit of a criminal genius as he'd been on remand awaiting trial for a fraud worth £1,819,000 where he convinced large organisations to give him money by posing as staff from Barclays Bank, Lloyds Bank, and Santander.

Prosecutor Ian Paton said: "A lot of criminal ingenuity harbours in the mind of Mr Moore. The case is one of extraordinary criminal inventiveness, deviousness and creativity, all apparently the developed expertise of this defendant".
The judge, Recorder David Hunt QC, described the behaviour as "ingenious" criminality.


Sometimes he answered calls from victims using a man's voice and then pretended to transfer the call to a colleague before resuming the conversation in a woman's voice, the court heard earlier.
He was so convincing police initially co-charged his partner Kristen Moore with the deception. All charges against her have now been dropped.
Moore, who has pleaded guilty to eight counts of fraud and one count of escape from lawful custody, will be sentenced on 20 April

Sounds like a plot for a Hollywood film.

Sometimes simple is best.
Send an email saying "Release me"

Brilliant


I'm reminded of a guy (years ago) who hung a sack in a banks hole-in-the-wall night safe, later he returned and pulled out the sack full of cash!

Another one that impressed me.
Two young guys dreampt up this one, and pulled it off perfectly.
They purchased a set of soft porn videos.
They went online and registered a company name.
They placed ads in newspapers, advertising the full boxed set of porn movies for half price!
Thousands of people sent in their money to purchase the movies.

Remember, the guys only had one set of movies, so they sent a cheque to all the customers and a letter explaining they had sold out.
Where's the scam?
Well, the company name they registered was "Child Porn Movies" and that name was written (in big red letters) on all the cheques they sent out.
If you had received one of those cheques would you have cashed it?
They made hundreds of thousands! Last I heard of that case the police were still trying to figure out a way to get them, but the problem was they hadn't broken any laws.

Is that a movie?
I read about the scam many years ago, I've even seen it mentioned on ats at times too, are you suggesting its not real, or that a movie was made about it?

Yes it is in that movie, but the made up company was something like big bum gay lovers or something like that. Had nothing to do with kids.
