(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'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."
