The programme which enables the viewer to solve and prevent crime.
With Nick Ross and Sue Cook Since 1984 more than 120 elderly women have been conned out of their pension books. From Colchester to Bristol to Coventry, two women have been posing as DHSS officials on doorsteps and at hospital bedsides. They have cashed over E20,000 from the stolen pensions and left their victims frightened and disturbed. Viewers from across the country might help find the pension pinchers and there's advice for all old people on how to be safe from confidence tricksters, bogus callers and doorstep thieves.
From a single haul in Tayside a spectacular Aladdin's Cave - up to a million pounds worth of property - if you've been burgled look out for your treasured heirloom.
