Scam City: Money, Mayhem and Maseratis 7 July 2022: Thursday on BBC Three 11

Free Cash – Series 1 Episode 1 of 5 – Award-winning journalist Mobeen Azhar investigates the story of Gurvin Singh, a 20-year-old medical student who one evening near Christmas decided to hand out free cash to unsuspecting strangers in Plymouth town centre. He told the local paper that he was ‘giving back to the community’, having made thousands of pounds through forex trading. But weeks later rumours were rife that Gurvin’s trading claims were a scam.

With meme pages and social media profiles providing the clues, Mobeen discovers that Gurvin is at the centre of an alleged multi-million-pound scam.

Blocked – Series 1 Episode 2 of 5 – Journalist Mobeen Azhar investigates the world of online forex trading, discovering a world where remarkably similar claims of success suggest that the story of Gurvin could be one of many. Having tried to make contact with Mr Gurvz, as he’s known online, Mobeen is blocked from his social media accounts and forced to turn to more traditional methods in hunting him down.

On the other side of the city, a tip-off leads him to a south London community group who were also involved in a forex investment that didn’t go to plan. The conversation provides a revelation that potentially links both cases to an established brand with offices right in the heart of London’s financial district.
