Documentary exposing some of the rip-offs that are costing British consumers. This series of the consumer investigations series begins with Angela Rippon, Gloria Hunniford and Julia Somerville exposing the latest scams designed to trick you out of your cash, starting with a particularly nasty case that saw one woman cheated out of ú90,000 after fraudsters posing as police convinced her that staff at her local bank were in on the con too. Also in this episode, the phoney landlords renting out properties they don't even own, and as e-mail scams become ever more convincing and difficult to spot, a woman reveals how criminals were able to convince her to hand over ú25,000. Plus plenty of scam-busting tips to avoid being caught out, and the Rip Off Britain pop-up shop opens up in Manchester.
