THE SCAM HUNTER

THE SCAM HUNTER

Unique insight into crime and criminals

“Fascinating insight into criminals and some of their scams. From relatively “inoffensive” crimes like phone left to horrendous ones of drugging, kidnapping and rape, Conor goes into the stories behind the crimes, how they are managed and the motivations around them. Lots of insights, with the one I was left with most strongly was the difference between criminals who are often as much victims themselves, often in circumstances they can’t get out of (even if they have caused it themselves) and those who are basically evil. I’d strongly recommend to all”

Top Read! Brilliant adventures, heart pumping scenarios

“Excellent read! Conor woodman’s insight into the crimes that happen behind closed doors are brilliant! A lot of threatening situations he puts himself into all for the love of journalism and to create this book is scary! For anyone to say it’s a scam of a read needs to shake their head! Only downfall it’s now read and wanted more.”

SHARKS: INVESTIGATING THE CRIMINAL HEART OF THE GLOBAL CITY

SHARKS: INVESTIGATING THE CRIMINAL HEART OF THE GLOBAL CITY

Great Read!

“What a great read. Tales from the big cities around the world, where crime, scams, exploitation and seedy encounters are demonstrated in broad daylight and dark corners. The author goes in search of the people involved from the bottom to the top, in an effort to find out how the systems work. Generally, he finds them without great difficulty, but often find he gets in deeper than he intended, with his life at risk in some scenarios which seem to escalate from a simple street crime with an individual to the organised thugs higher up the crime ladder. The book is well written, with some of the shady characters he meets brought to life by the vivid descriptions. I enjoyed the book and the tales are often shocking, but only because they need the author curiosity to gets the better of him, especially when he is fully aware of the dangerous situations he will get himself into. A very brave man who takes investigative journalism to the edge, and sometimes almost over it.”
