Duration: 30 minutes

Hustlers Alex Conran, Jess Clement and Paul Wilson lift the lid on the most devious scams to target the British public. They are joined by celebrity guests who are thrown in at the deep end to become a part of the team without any training or preparation.

Hollyoaks actor Ben Hull plays an investor in a car buying scheme - buying cars taken off the road under the government's scrappage scheme and selling them on to a vehicle exporter for a nice profit. Together with Paul he ropes a couple of marks in and persuades them to invest some cash of their own. Of course the whole setup is a devious ruse to separate them from their money.

In the Shred scam, Jess demonstrates that your personal documents could come back to haunt you even if they have been shredded into a thousand pieces. Especially if you trust a stranger knocking on your door.
