Jane Rackham

Dominic Littlewood continues his one-man crusade to rid the country of conmen, criminals and rip-off merchants with this new series, which started yesterday. Today he’s investigating the trade in fake medicines and the dealers who make a fortune from peddling them. He also reports on a fake holiday village conman who cost British tourists thousands of pounds and an art forger whose Victorian fairy paintings were so good, they almost fooled the art world.

If you think that last con sounds unusual, wait until tomorrow — he catches up with a fake technician making illegal dentures from a laundry room!
