The ever-resourceful Jim Browning, a YouTube sensation with exceptional tech skills, hacks into scam centres in real-time, allowing the team to intercept scams before they materialize.

Scam Interceptors will air weekdays at 10AM on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 23 October, with all 10 episodes dropping on iPlayer on the same day.

This BBC One Daytime series also continues its mission to unmask the identities of the individuals behind large-scale scams. Once exposed, the show confronts some of the most egregious cyber-criminals, compelling them to confront the crimes they’ve committed as they are held accountable by the team.

Furthermore, Scam Interceptors delves into the personal stories of those directly affected by these scams, serving as a poignant reminder of their repercussions amid the ongoing cost-of-living crisis that places added strain on people’s financial well-being.

Presenter Rav Wilding said: “It’s fantastic to be back carrying out this work. With increased pressure on people’s finances, this latest instalment of Scam Interceptors comes at exactly the right time.

“We continue to hold high-profile call centre criminals to account and shed light on the impact of these industrial-scale scams on vulnerable victims.”


A further series has been confirmed to air in 2024.
