Scam City

Series 1 - 1. Buenos Aires

Going to Buenos Aires any time soon? Watch this and you might be reluctant to leave the hotel. Conor Woodman visits the Argentinian capital to confront scammers who prey on tourists, working his way up to a meeting with the city’s top forger.

Woodman’s method is to get scammed himself, then turn around and interview the perpetrators. This seems risky enough even when confronting street thieves and a woman in a hotel bar who wants to spike his drink. But when he ends up in a room with three guys, hundreds of fake bills, some cocaine and a sawn-off shotgun, it starts to look plain mad.
