Fraud is the new goldmine for organised crime. 3.2 million people in Britain have become victims. One of the most lucrative scams is ‘Boiler Room’ fraud. People are conned into buying worthless shares in fictitious companies. Some victims have lost their homes, others have committed suicide.
Fraud Squad shadows detectives as they investigate one of the biggest share frauds in Britain. The hunt for the Nigerian ringleader and his gang takes detectives across the playgrounds of Europe. Will they recover the £20 million stolen from the victims before the gang spend it on their lavish lifestyles?
This critically acclaimed series exposes this subversive and devastating crime for the very first time with fast-paced action and compelling stories.
