The documentary looks into the minds of four men behind unbelievably elaborate, and often highly sophisticated cons, with details of the masses of ordinary people the conmen have been able to dupe to extraordinary extremes. We learn about the man who faked his own death, the man who raised hundreds of thousands of pounds by pretending he had cancer, the man who pretended to be a doctor and the pair who conned the international art world. We meet experts who offer an insight into how the minds of these incredible characters work, as well as talking to the police forces responsible for eventually putting them behind bars.
