At the height of his racket, Feezan Hameed Choudhary was pulling in a staggering $2.8 million monthly as the ringleader of the UK’s biggest-ever cyber scam.
Choudhary’s infamous”vishing” fraud that ended up scheming 750 British bank customers from a joint $210 million has been completed thanks to the 28-year-old’s uncanny knack for nailing various accents.
During the scam, he phoned innocent customers posing as a bank official, putting on Scottish, Welsh and upper-class English accents and forcing them to hand over personal information, which allowed him to drain their accounts.
But in September 2016, everything came to an end after the Glasgow-based crook was sentenced to 11 years behind bars after owning up to a conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to launder money.
He supposedly also used his cash to generate a music clip for Pakistani pop star Bilal Saeed who later performed at his engagement party.
Mr Franklin said”Fizzy” gained around #19 million ($A35 million) from his offences after taking into account expenditure.
