Alexis Conran investigates new forms of financial fraud, meeting some of those who have lost money to fraudsters and examining the clever tricks they employ to con people out of their cash. In the first of three programmes, the North East Regional Special Operations Unit reveals how it captured a gang of tarmac scammers, and on a visit to the Eastbourne Trading Standards Scam Hub in East Sussex, Alex discovers how postal fraudsters are trying to take advantage of the elderly hoping to dupe them out of their life savings.
