Toni Muldoon, master of deception, in 2013, was sentenced to six years and five months for fraud. The Londoner's crimes were committed in England and coastal Spain. The amount defrauded was estimated at 5.7 million. However, the true figure will never be known and could likely be double. These are statistics but what of the man himself? Toni Muldoon, a colourful character, is your typical artful dodger and self-effacing opportunist. He turned the public's greed for a fast buck to his advantage. There is much humour in his story. Candidly told to journalist-writer Michael Walsh, to whom he entrusted his confessionary, here is a fascinating and revealing first-hand account of a rogue whose thefts make the Great Train Robbers appear as amateurs. Although no Robin Hood, Muldoon successfully swindled the Inland Revenue, High Street banks, Hollywood's film industry, industrial conglomerates, and an estimated 17,300 ordinary punters like you and me. Best wear your asbestos gloves as his story is hot."
