Fraud Squad

Some things are out of your control – the weather, the traffic… the ghost in your living room! This August Investigation Discovery features cases that shocked victims and will surprise viewers.

Harassed by haunting forces, Canadian homeowners bring in the PARANORMAL HOME INSPECTORS (Aug. 16) to solve the mystery.

Then, FRAUD SQUAD (Aug. 22) returns for another season, exposing the criminals who prey on unsuspecting victims. Next, two young men are wrongfully convicted of murder and fight to have their name cleared in I DIDN’T DO IT (Aug. 24).

Enter Canadian haunted houses with back-to-back episodes of PARANORMAL HOME INSPECTORS. This original Canadian 13-part series brings together a psychic and a home inspector to uncover whether the mysterious home happenings are explainable or supernatural. In a question of science versus the paranormal, will the homeowners be left with a simple fix to their problem or will they be pushed even further beyond their comfort zone?





Wed., August 24 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT

Follow a murder investigation gone terribly wrong. This one-hour Canadian special looks at the story and personal toll behind two cases of wrongful conviction. Two young men are wrongfully convicted of murdering a young mother in Austin, Texas.

Mondays at 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET/3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. PT, beginning August 22

It can happen to anyone – a trusting grandparent wanting to help a grandchild; a professional looking to make a quick buck; a consumer accidently purchasing with counterfeit money; or a homeowner with a construction worker who produces questionable results. This 13-part series features the activities of the Fraudulent Crimes Squad of the Metropolitan police force, based at New Scotland Yard, to show that fraud schemes can occur to anyone at any time.
