This is the inside story of the world’s biggest financial fraud, the 1MDB scandal, where billions of dollars were stolen to fund the lavish lifestyle of businessman Jho Low. He used the stolen money to fund his lavish lifestyle of private jets, legendary parties and even financing the film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. Investigative journalists Bradley Hope and Tom Wright pieced together the story of the most audacious financial scandal in history. We go behind the headlines and hear from the people behind some of the world’s most intriguing investigations – from undercover journalists to religious lawbreakers, we relive their stories through master interviews and archives.

Until recently, one of the biggest fraudsters in the world lived a dream life, throwing enormous parties for his famous friends. The lavish life of Malaysian businessman Jho Low did not go unnoticed by many, but the money to finance that lifestyle came from illegally funneling large sums of money into foreign bank accounts. The man himself still claims to be innocent. However, the big question at the moment remains where this infamous person is as to this day he has disappeared without a trace and cannot be found by the authorities, who are eagerly looking for him to hold him accountable for his actions.
