Captain John Braddock

The series was based on actual case files from police departments around the country that involved various confidence games pulled by professional con-artists (sweepstake swindlers, crooked card games,  money switches, phony sales pitches, etc.)

[Voice of Reed Hadley] "What you are about to see is a real-life story taken from the files of police racket and bunco squads, business protective associations, and similar sources all over the country. It is intended to expose the confidence game, the carefully worked out frauds by which confidence men take more money each year from the American public than all the bank robbers and thugs with their violence."

[Program Close] " I'm closing this case now, but there'll be others because that's the way the world is built. Remember, there are people who can slap you on the back with one hand and pick your pocket with the other-and it could happen to you."
