Thursday kicked off the final month of what’s been another jam-packed year for Netflix, full of streaming hits that have ranged from the Addams Family spinoff series Wednesday to dark titles like Dahmer, the return of Netflix shows like Stranger Things and The Crown — plus so much more.

This documentary comes from Passion Pictures and the creators of Lords of Scam, and it walks through the jaw-droppingly brazen scams of one of the most successful con men of all time: Gilbert Chikli, a Frenchman who was able to steal some 100 million euros between 2005 and 2017.
“The Masked Scammer looks back on the life of Gilbert Chikli, one of France’s best-known crooks, who managed to extort millions from the French elite via his sole asset — his voice,” the official Netflix synopsis explains. “He fooled his victims by imitating and disguising himself as Jean-Yves le Drian, the then French Minister of Defence, and persuading them to voluntarily transfer him more than €80 million.”
