The Business of Scams
New Zealanders are increasingly the targets of scamsters. This documentary Scams looks inside the world of scam artists and their victims. We find out what scams are out there and how to avoid becoming a victim.
If you have ever been tempted by the promise of easy money – a deal that seems too good to be true – then beware – thousands of New Zealanders are losing money every year and the scamsters are the ones getting rich. They are a breed apart from the common criminal who takes your money. They convince you to give it to them … then they’re gone.
