King Hit Here's a tip worth remembering. Under no circumstances should anyone stand between Peter Foster and his ill-gotten gains. For three decades Foster has been scamming his way to millions and millions of dollars of other people's money. He's Australia's best - correction, worst - con artist, but until now the real impact of his crimes has often been diluted by ridiculing the gullible victims who were duped by his fast-talking and dodgy schemes. The truth though is simple: Foster is a hard-nosed criminal, and as you're about to see - and hear - he'll stop at nothing to get to his loot. On assignment for 60 Minutes, Karl Stefanovic reports on explosive new allegations involving Australia's most despicable conman and the cop who finally beat him, in an epic battle that gets downright dirty. Top Secrets Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has made his name - and plenty of enemies - by publishing military and other highly sensitive secrets of multiple governments around the world. As a consequence, he now calls a maximum-security jail in the UK home while he fights a bitter battle with the Trump administration which wants him extradited to the US. Before prison, the controversial - and now very frail - Australian spent seven years holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. And that's where Assange conceived his own top secrets - two sons with his, until now, equally secretive fiancee, Stella Moris.
