"He was better at maths..Seemingly not when it came to his finances. What a couple of dummies.

My mum saw him at a bar before. He acted like ppl would recognise him. She had no idea who he was. Only noticed him because of the cringe way he was acting. It was only later when ppl said that's who he is...

A brit can buy land in Kansas but I can't buy land in France or Europe? What's going on here? BTW, he spends 200K GPB for the land in Panama equal to $380K USD. Now, $380K USD is equal to about 330K GPB. Wow! Now that's deflation and austerity! and yet another reason for the UK to leave the EU.

imagine your dad pretends to be dead and lives next door to you, and you find out but don't say anything, you have a key for next door and you let your self in and find his clothes and he has cameras watching you all the time, then your mother pretends to be dead, and its all on TV, that would be real bad for anyone, and it was all for money, plus dead people don't have to answer questions about anything,

Ok, I have zero sympathy for this crook and his wife, but bankers, insurance companies and multinational corporations cheat, rob and shaft ordinary people every day, and the police do absolutely nothing about it.

As someone from Hartlepool (The small north eastern English town that this is from) I can safely say I'm glad this has made YouTube before our Unemployment, Teenage Pregnancy and Chlamydia statistics.

I kept wondering why they were showing a picture of Ted Bundy until I realized that's their son... creepy 😲 How could they do this to their children?

Why did that dummy show up at the police station claiming no memory. He had pulled his plan off. Why would he ever think that he would be able to pull off claiming no memory. Boy some criminals are so dumb. The wife should have moved away for goodness sakes. She just seems unintelligent. I can’t believe she pulled off the acting job when she reported him missing but I guess she did. You would have thought the police would have wondered what was going on right then.

So changing with the door open is SO bad to be KICKED out? 😂

well if you can take all her money back, then what do you do with a Bill Cosby who made millions pretending to be nice, when turns out he is a monster. all this guy did is pretend to be dead.

23:25 You actually invited a man from the internet who you'd never met in real life to stay in your home with your children?! Make him stay in a motel or find other accommodations first until you get to know each other and are sure you can trust him. Don't give him the benefit of the doubt and let him in to see whether anything bad happens, especially if you have kids. Stupid.

Then after she got those insane emails later on where he threatened her as well as her children and pets, she just buys a shotgun instead of going to the police? WTF

How in the world did she get more time than he did?! Yes she was no innocent bystander in this but he's apparently a violent and manipulative guy and the one who actually came up with this and went "missing"

She pleaded not guilty & was found guilty, so you get a longer sentence.

Something to consider: He was already "dead". She could have killed him and legitimately been a widow!

This is ridiculous and trashy journalism. That histrionic display from the family of the John that died fifty years ago? After a few weeks? And their own children disowned them for trying to get out of a financial hole.. wow, that is harsh. And that woman in Kansas is just a loser, they shouldn't have trusted her to put together a property deal. He just wanted to get some of the money back, it was empty threats. This silly program must not have enough real criminals to report on. As if this couple is the most wicked evil on the face of the earth. Banks are evil. They were dishonest, desperate, and unethical but how many people haven't been at some point in life? Too bad they didn't get away with it.. they were just a bit stupid, too.

Kelly , that american woman is a f-ng liar ! Why would she go into business with a man who threatened her in all kinds of ways instead of notifying the police , either she's dumb or she's a liar !

the documentary could have been a cool mystery but the truth was made clear in the first sentence. family of the baby were over the top. even the American was over the top, wasn't he just getting changed dead quick? lol. she invited a random gamer into her house.
