Wham Bam Thank You Scam

Published on 17th March 2016 by

An independent self-made documentary by an Australian man who was scammed by people operating a fake investment scheme online, he charts his attempts to track down those who scammed him out of his savings. He tracks them to Chang Mai in Thailand and visits the country to try and find and confront them, getting very close at one stage. The film was published directly to YouTube (not made for TV).

He also visits the HSBC bank in Hong Kong, asking how it is that his scammers can get away with using their banking services, only to discover that the organisation is opaque. The film maker also has a webpage giving some further details about the scam; whambamthankyouscam.com. He also edited and uploaded an alternative ending for the documentary, which can be watched below.
