The Real Hustle

real_hustleMy Sweetheart and I started to watch this series, The Real Hustle (TRH), after accidentally stumbling upon one of the episodes on Discovery Channel a few weeks ago. Now we already have 5 series and can’t wait to have the rest too :)

The Real Hustle, written by Alex Conran and Paul Wilson, is a factual entertainment series about scams and cons focusing on how easy it is to be scammed and conned in everyday life. The show demonstrates and uncovers the secrets behind the most common confidence and magic tricks, distraction scams and proposition bets performed on members of the public by Alex Conran -> confidence trickster, Paul Wilson –> con artist, and Jessica-Jane Clement –> sexy swindler. The program shows ways in which people can be scammed out of substantial amounts of money with relatively little effort.

The ultimate goal is to educate the viewer on various scams. So as it says in the show too, all those people in the episodes have actually been scammed on hidden camera and after given their money back, they agreed that the footage can be shown so others can avoid being ripped off and won’t fall for the same scams. TRH makes one think twice before virtually throwing their money at people :P

It’s really useful, I recommend it to everyone! One can never be too careful…

PS: This is their website (separate from BBC’s site about TRH): or is it just a scam-site? :P
