A new kind of computer con has emerged in the past few years. It's technically mundane but psychologically brutal: using false threats of arrest, scammers trick low-income victims into repaying debts that do not exist. And one rainy day last January, they accidentally targeted one of the smartest hackers around.
Mike Davis is a good guy who gets to play at being a bad guy, a man who gets paid handsomely for testing the limits of his clients' security systems. Davis wanted a new challenge; when the fraudsters called, he realised he'd found it.
Award-winning technology journalist Danny Bradbury sits in as Davis tries to unpick the scam, following a trail that leads to the spam capital of America, through a wholesome town in the Midwest and, finally, to the other side of the world.
