From unremarkable photocopier salesman to mastermind of Australia’s largest ever corporate fraud, the allegations against Bill Papas are staggering. He’s accused of netting almost half a billion dollars in an audacious, and deviously simple scam. And so far, he seems to have gotten away with it. That’s because instead of explaining himself, Papas has done a runner and fled the country. But in this joint investigation between 60 Minutes, the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, we track him down, living a very good life in Greece.
For forty years, 60 Minutes have been telling Australians the world’s greatest stories. Tales that changed history, our nation and our lives. Reporters Liz Hayes, Tom Steinfort, Tara Brown, Liam Bartlett and Sarah Abo look past the headlines because there is always a bigger picture. Sundays are for 60 Minutes.
