Conman Mark Acklom to be released
 
Could he return to Switzerland? Since he has been on the run before, it wouldn't be a surprise if he does so again while out on licence. Bet he'll return to his old ways before too long.

Notorious conman who seduced divorcee out of £300,000 [she says £850,000] by posing as an MI6 spy is to be released early from five-year prison sentence

Quote:

...Acklom was arrested in a plush apartment in Zurich where he was living with his wife and children, after five years on the run. ... He has since been jailed three times in Spain for a variety of fraud offences. He also changed his name to Marc Ros Rodriguez. ...

Unfortunately nobody cares, more's the pity. The money is hidden somewhere, or has been given to family and friends to hold. A forensic accountant and fraudulent conveyance law (action paulienne, in Civil Law countries) might get some of it back.

He will only stop when some victim, or family member of a victim, tops him.

Thank you very much for posting all of this, especially the video link. Just watched it.

Well, ladies, let's not fall in love with charismatic English guys from now on.
Or maybe the thread should become a sticky, so we can check the picture before we do. :D

Surprised he chose the silver coast. Would have expected him to chose a house-number between Tina Turner and Chrisoph Blocher. :msnsarcastic:

I would image he is on Schengenís watch list. That may not be perfect, but itís certainly a lot better than people think it is.

One of these psychopaths tried it on with a member of my family...stories of the Foreign Legion, proper accent (and I was schooled there, but he sounded believable), daring-do as a spy, etc. He backed off when I started asking questions he could not answer. These people are fascinating, reptilian, and frightening. Of course he will go back to doing the only thing he knows...there's no one in that shell.

I had spuriously suggested shooting a neighbour to conclude a pointless argument in another thread. You, however, come across as a veteran jurist :confused:

He's far from the only one.
Whether he gets stopped or not doesn't really make a difference overall.

Mark Acklom: Serial conman who tricked his lover out of nearly £1m agrees to be extradited to Spain

Quote:

19.8.2021

Jailed conman Mark Acklom, who was due to be released from prison next Friday, has agreed to be extradited to Spain within 10 days in order to complete an unfinished [18 month] sentence in the country.
Thread started in 2011 and kept going since by "Charlie's Angel", whom Martin Brunt met in the above Sky documentary, and who has apparently been doing a lot of digging regarding Acklom's activities:
