‘In the first of a new run of this excellent fly-on-the-wall series, we follow City of London police officers as they track and raid the gang, who have made millions by selling, over and over again, pockets of worthless land on flood zones. We are taken, too, into the multimillion-pound homes of the fraud’s kingpins, their wardrobes packed with designer goodies.’

- Radio Times

‘This invaluable series highlights some of the nastiest scams, starting tonight with land bank fraud. Companies are set up for short periods of time in prestigious offices to sell parcels of worthless land using high-pressure telesales agents.’

- The Times

‘Documentaries like this should be required viewing. Watch one every time you’re about to do anything with your hard-earned savings and ask yourself: ‘Am I being had?”
