You’ve Been Scammed uncovers the sophisticated scams that target millions of people every year. Presenter MATT ALLWRIGHT (Rogue Traders) meets the ordinary people whose lives have been devastated by these scams, and hears how they were cleverly but cruelly manipulated into handing over their cash.
During the series MATT meets one man who lost his life savings when he became the target of a boiler room scam and was tricked into investing in fake shares on the stock market, as well as an innocent woman whose online date turned out to be a ruthless conman. You’ve Been Scammed exposes the latest scams out there, who they target and how to avoid them, as well as looking at how the authorities are fighting back against conmen and bringing them to justice – like the fraudsters who were put behind bars after pocketing millions of pounds by selling non-existent tickets to events like the Beijing Olympics.
You’ve Been Scammed has achieved peak audience ratings of 1.5 million, with a 28% share of viewers in a 9.15am slot.
