Mark Acklom is Britains most notorious conman, in a 30 year criminal career he has defrauded not only his own family but also countless complete strangers. In this Sky special we hear from reporter Martin Brunt who has been tracking Acklom around the United Kingdom as Brunt reveals the true extend of Ackloms criminal network across Europe.
In this film we see how so many people were taken in by Acklom for so long, having posed as an MI6 agent to con his ex-girlfriend out of almost £300,000. We also witness the first TV interview with Diana Acklom, his mother. In this interview she has an extraordinary theory for her son’s prolific crimes.
