About "American Greed”

American Greed goes inside the dark side of the American Dream - where money seduces, power corrupts, and smooth criminals will stop at nothing to get rich. Their complex scams leave victim's lives in shambles. Each episode is a deep dive into the minds and actions of heartless crooks who live lives most people can only dream of. But how many luxury homes and exotic cars does it take to justify these white collar crimes? Ultimately for the crooks the dream turns into a nightmare when their shady plans unravel. American Greed follows the money through the eyes of the criminals, the victims, and the investigators who bring these scammers to justice.
