Robert Hendy-Freegard (b.1971) was a British conman who worked a series of highly complex and dangerous scams. His method was to pose as an undercover agent for the British secret services and then convince his victims that they had inadvertently become involved in a terrorist plot - usually involving the IRA (Irish Republican Army). Hendy-Freegard would then explain that he could save their lives, but only if they became part of his network of agents. Those he managed to convince were then drained of cash and property, and seduced if they were women. He had at least 6 victims. In 2002 he was convicted of theft and deception and sentenced to nine years in prison.
