THE IMPOSTOR

Miami's Most Notorious Con Man

A serial con man uses multiple aliases and his gift of gab to bilk his victims out of millions of dollars worth of hotel rooms, jewelry, clothes, and electronics. Best known for a Super Bowl ticket heist, Jimmy Sabatino's criminal resume also includes a presidential death threat and dubious connections to the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

Prelude: William Douglas Street Jr., a notorious impostor, assumes many different roles and professions in an attempt shortcut his way to the top.
