Anyone know Hamish? (podcast topic)

Recommended Posts

New podcast from "the teachers pet" people, is about a conman who fleeced people out of millions. 

At a time he was a Sydney runner and Triathlete, we know it a pretty small world out there,,, anyone bump into Hamish?  (McClaren, McLachlan, Maxwell) 

Good podcast so far too!

Lol....

I went to school with the bloke.

A year below me, but I knew him.

He was no triathlete.

He's created plenty of chat amongst the 'old boy's'.

Real name Hamish Watson.

No lie, if I went to see this bloke as a financial adviser having never laid eyes on him before, my 'bullshit artist' alarm would go off at serious decibels before he even opened his lying gob.  He just looks rolled gold slick & dodgy.

Read the SHM article - like me his colleagues ask how the Hell he can sleep at night.  What a prick. 

As I've said before, Financial Advisers are right at the top of my list as the most suspect profession on the planet.  Even the better ones (like ours) don't really tell it entirely straight (thank Christ I arranged a performance-based fee structure with them instead of what their default offer is).

Listened to the pod and it’s interesting. Amazing to think that some people a so lonely they fall for these people and cannot see the forest for the trees even when good friends are telling them.

You gotta wonder if that’s why he got himself into triathlon circles. 

People with too much money, looking for a quick fix.... plenty of those types around 

:lol:

I agree, however he must have been pretty good. He managed to Con many, many people out of thier $$

Was he really a licenced financial adviser or did he just call himself one ?

I can’t find any record of him holding a financial services licence or being authorised under any licence. Last record I found was when he was banned by asic in 2003. I am having a hard time believing he was ever licenced.

Do you think he spent all the cash - and if so, what could he possible have spent it on?!  And, if not, where is it?

We seriously have to ask this about someone that does triathlon?
