SCAMMED unpacks the history of cons and con artists. There are essentially five cons that are the basis for every swindle since man walked upright. For example, today's Nigerian email scam is nothing more than a derivation of a Spanish Conquistador's bait and switch con that started around the year 1400.
Paul Wilson, dubbed the "World's Greatest Con Man," and his team take viewers inside long and complicated schemes and even the micro-cons that have plagued unsuspecting people for hundreds, even thousands of years. His goal is to expose these cons, hustles and schemes so that he can teach others how to avoid them. Over the course of the program, see Paul play out one long con on a designated mark. Peppering the show will also be infamous short cons, such as the "bottle cap" con, popular in 1920s New York. In addition to historic cons, Paul will also show how many of these scams have been adapted to be brutally effective with today's technology. While the tricks may be the same, the stakes are higher; with more than money on the line. Social Security numbers, bank account information, and private information are there for the taking... but only if you let a con man in.
