Availability: Out Of Stock

Elliot Castro is unique in the history of British financial crime. No outside individual has stolen so much money for so long from the credit card system. Identifying the banks' many security weaknesses, utilising his formidable intelligence and charm, Elliot embarked on a spending spree that ran into seven figures. The money wasn't funding an addiction or other criminal enterprises - Elliot was simply a working-class kid with no qualifications who wanted to see the world in style. From London to New York, Ibiza to Beverly Hills, Castro lived a fantasy life. He stayed in famous hotels, travelled first class, and blew a small fortune on designer clothes and champagne. Time after time Elliot managed to wriggle free of the numerous authorities who were on his tail while his life spiralled out of control. As he juggled aliases and lied to family and friends, he began to lose his grip on reality. Meanwhile, from an office at Heathrow Police Station, a detective was patiently tracking him down. Now, for the first time, Elliot and others tell his amazing story to Neil Forsyth. Filled with humour, as fast paced as a thriller, Other People's Money also offers fascinating insights into the techniques of Britain's most audacious, and friendliest, credit card fraudster.
