Sorry that I'm not up to date on MTV?

He jetsets across the world, has multiple aliases, and gets old girls to pay for new girls to keep the scam going. Seems close enough to me.

Personally, it felt more like MTV catfished than catch me if you can, although yes in catch me if you can he does use the nurse.
Agree, nothing special about this story.

Or Gilbert Chikli who invented the "CEO scam" and was able to persuade bank and company officers to transfer money by simply ringing them and impersonating their CEO. He lived in luxury in Ashdod for many years, but was dumb enough to travel to Ukraine to be arrested and handed over to France.

Yes it was called "le coup du président" .. he invented, and a lot of people did it ..

Though the story could also serve as a dictionary definition for Blond.

Hayut grew up in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak in central Israel and as a child studied in a Talmud Torah elementary school near his home. His father, Yohanan Hayut, is the chief rabbi of El Al.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Just for a bit of background, this guy's father is the "Rabbi" of Elal.
