But these crimes are just the final pages in a resume too thick to staple; for decades, he's duped victims in the US, Canada, Britain, Hong Kong, and Australia. So how did he do it? How did he evade authorities around the world for so long, and what's he done with all those tens of millions of dollars he stole?
