This alleged conman seems to be inspired by the movie" Catch Me If You Can." Kao Kang-hung was invited by a high school in Taitung to speak as an accomplished alumnus. However, it was discovered that Kao faked his police identity and is involved in many allegations. The school immediately revoked his "accomplished alumni" status and apologized to students.
In April, National Taitung University Affiliated Physical Education Senior High School alumnus Kao Kang-hung spoke to students on a livestream about his life experiences as a student at the school and as a police narcotics detective. Kao, one of the school's "accomplished alumni" who competed on the swim team, gave the speech wearing a police uniform.
He didn't shy away from some of the mistakes he made as a youth. For example, he hated studying and got into fights.
After the Criminal Investigation Bureau's anti-crime center in central Taiwan discovered Kao was, in fact, not police on June 29, the school deleted all mentions of his speech and removed him from its "accomplished alumni" list. It also apologized to students and staff for not checking Kao's background thoroughly enough before the speech.
Another "layer" is that as a teacher, you worry about your own children or your own students when they don't seem to be going anywhere after graduating high school.
The school says Kao was very convincing during his speech and there were no signs he wasn't a real police detective. It also says Kao offered to donate his speaking fee back to the school beforehand and therefore was not paid for his speech.
