(Silver Spring, Md.)- Science Channel goes undercover in the all-new series that dissects the tactics of thieves, con men and scam artists in some of the busiest and most-densely-populated cities across the globe. SCAM CITY follows host, Conor Woodman, as he ventures into dark streets to unveil the inner workings of some of the world's most intricate crime rings. Woodman sets up shady taxi drivers, illicit drug lords, and expert pick-pockets, playing the role of the innocent tourist, only to expose the routines of these seasoned criminals. Woodman's undercover exposes provide a fascinating look into illegal practices that have victimized travelers for hundreds of years. Science Channel is exposing scams at their best - or their worst - when SCAM CITY premieres Monday, April 15th, at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).

"There's a science to everything - even crime - and SCAM CITY takes viewers inside the minds of career criminals to uncover the methodology behind their mayhem," said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president of Science Channel. "Conor takes Science Channel viewers on a fascinating trip around the world and an illuminating journey into the mind of a thief."

World-renowned author, economist, and traveler Conor Woodman takes on a risky investigative role in the 10-part series, as he goes undercover with criminals in this rarely documented but all-too-common world. Talking to con artists up close and personal, our host takes us on a fascinating trip across the globe to famed destinations including Las Vegas, Rio De Janiero and Dubai and more.
