The article follows Swedish con artist Bo Stefan Eriksson, who, among other things, "wrecked a million-dollar Ferrari Enzo going 160 mph on Pacific Coast Highway above Malibu in February 2006."

Eriksson got started with a hand-held video game company, called Gizmondo, that eventually went bankrupt.

Eriksson was most recently deported in January 2008 and was put away again in March.
