The long con: New podcast on the multimillion-dollar fallout from Barry Kloogh
Barry Kloogh splashed cash on clothes, trips and late model European cars, with money that was not his to spend.
The Dunedin-based financial adviser, groomed and then fleeced his investors of $15.9 million, a probe by the Serious Fraud office revealed.
But the impact of his offending did not end there for London-based former Dunedin woman Sarah Ferris, who has just completed a major podcast series called Klooghless: The Long Con.
For Ferris, much like her first foray into podcasting, it was personal.
‘’It is just crazy, you wait for a bus for two hours then all of a sudden two come along at once … how the hell do two con stories happen in my family? It just doesn’t seem real.’’
Now Ferris has turned her attention to Kloogh, who swindled her parents-in-law and dozens of other victims.
Many of Kloogh’s victims had known him for decades.
