Don't Get Ripped Off

Polly Parsons, Carole Machin and Martel Maxwell are three girls who go to extreme lengths to make you aware of your consumer rights so you have the ammunition to fight back and don't get ripped off.

The innovative format uses hidden cameras to set up traps and rip-offs by creating fake businesses to draw in unsuspecting consumers and then hit them with an ambitious stunt.

There is also practical advice on how to make an effective claim, so viewers can avoid costly lawyers, and short vox-pops shot on the streets of the UK which expose the gap between what viewers perceive their rights to be and what they actually are.
