On July 2018, Mark Richard G. Acklom, an English conman who is on Britain’s National Crime Agency’s (NCA) list of 10 most-wanted fugitives, has been caught in Switzerland after six years of hiding. Acklom was arrested by the Swiss police together with NCA and Avon and Somerset Police in his lavish abode in Zurich with his wife and two children.

Acklom’s records state he started committing crimes in 1991 where he stole his father’s American Express card and posed as a stockbroker to commit fraud. His parents learned of his feats and reported it to the police which resulted in his imprisonment for four years. His parents had to sell their house in Bromley to pay off their son’s debt.

It was believed that Acklom’s action was influenced by a television series titled, Crime Watch specifically the episode, Crime Limited. Since then, he had experienced being jailed three times in Spain.

In 2012, he pretended to be Mark Conway, a wealthy Swiss Banker, an MI6 agent and despite being married, he started a romantic relationship with Carolyn woods and decided that they should get married. He asked Ms. Woods for an amount of £850,000 for renovation work at some properties in Bath and disappeared without repaying her. Ms. Woods is pleased to hear of Acklom’s arrest.

Acklom is currently in custody until the extradition process is complete and will face criminal proceedings in British Court.

There have been studies and theories linking television viewing and aggressive behavior during adolescence and adulthood. The study claimed that watching too much TV may bring about and influence aggressive behavior in the future.

And Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior which asserts that those perceived factors whether favorable or not are likely to control over our actions. Meaning the stronger the element, the more it will possibly lead to future behavioral intention. Therefore, to avoid children being unruly in their adult lives, there must be strict supervision from parents.
