With exclusive access to a specialist police team, this observational documentary follows detectives on tense and high stakes surveillance and arrest operations. Detectives go after a gang stealing thousands of credit cards, uncover bent bank insiders selling our account details and tackle an international gang who’ve stolen over £3 million from Britain’s ATM machines.

Fraud is the fastest growing crime in Britain. Organised crime steals £2 million from our bank accounts every day. 1 in 5 British people have their cards stolen or compromised by criminal gangs. To tackle this crime wave, the banks have funded a specialist police team called The Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU). Made up of highly skilled detectives from The City of London and Metropolitan Police, the team investigate the gangs who hack into our online accounts, produce counterfeit credit cards and use skimming devices to clone our card and pin numbers.
