This is the convicted fraudster who has become gangland’s most wanted after tricking a host of criminals – including the warring Kinahan and Hutch factions – to invest their cash in a suspected pyramid scheme.

James ‘Fat Boy’ O’Gorman has gone to ground and is understood to be under the protection of a former Provo after running out of rope with his debtors. 

Sources close to the conman say that while he is still trying to buy time, he hasn’t a hope of paying back a penny after running a risky pyramid scheme with millions of euro of dirty money.

It is understood that the 43-year-old was brought in to help Jim Mansfield Snr following the collapse of his multi-million euro business in 2011.
