Ten years experience at 23 years old? I don't think so

The photo has nothing to do with the post. A West Australian man has been charged with a number of offences as he has been posing as a psychologist and counselling clients when he has no qualifications whatsoever. A PhD from a Queensland university is a fake as is his Master’s degree. But the part that made me laugh was the fact that he claims he has had ten years’ experience as a practising psychologist – but he is only 23! I think he needs a revisions in maths if he has ideas of being a con man.

He does indeed. He is very cocky and isn't a bit sorry for what he's done.

@jayanth_77 @rakski He has had a very light sentence I think. He has to do community service, there is a fine he has to pay which seems a very low figure and that's about it. I think he should have gone to jail. He doesn't seem the least bit remorseful.

@JudyEv Con men usually don't change their ways. They just play the game. He may lay low for a while, then he'll just go somewhere else and start conning people all over again.

I often encountered tradesmen who claimed they had 30 years experience as an electrician, plumber, carpenter etc. Yet they were only in their early 20s. Odd, right?

You hear about those people around. At least he wouldn't get in as much trouble as a pschologist, as opposed to those who pose as medical doctors or pilots!

@JudyEv Funny you brought up this topic because I was watching Catch Me IF You Can on TV.. The guy was brilliant, and was probably the most successful con man ever at a young age. Thank God he spent most of his adult life working for the FBI and now makes millions as a security expert, and preventing financial crimes.

He's a big dreamer that is going nowhere except maybe prison. Maybe he started his work as a psychologist with his classmates in primary school. BTW - Love the picture.

I wonder why people do this. In this young man's case, I would think the claim of a PHD at 23 would be outrageous enough, though I understand it does happen, but 10 years experience? I think I would be calling in the police myself had he said that to me.

With the knowledge you can gain from the Internet these days I think it's possible to have 23 years experience at age 10.
