A very complicated scam, that's for sure., 22 February 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This episode of "Racket Busters" begins with a hotel manager and a bellboy storming into Captain Braddock's office. The manager wants the bellboy arrested and the bellboy keeps declaring his innocence. However, after they tell just a bit of their story, the Captain seems to know exactly what's REALLY going on--and the sweet and innocent Denning 'sisters' aren't really sweet at all...and they're not even sisters! What follows is one of the most complicated scams I've seen in the episodes of the series that I have seen. It's all very clever and it's best you just see it for yourself.

Unlike the typical episode, the epilogue is a bit different. Braddock (Reed Hadley) talks a bit how confidence men and women look very ordinary--not like criminals. Otherwise, who would believe their lies? An informative and interesting episode.
