This socially conscious drama is comprised of three cautionary tales designed to alert viewers to popular con-artist scams. The first shows how easily a hood with a female companion and a camera can gain permission to case a wealthy home. In the second vignette, a woman demonstrates profitable ways for cheating the stock market. The last episode shows how an ingenious and soulless crook abuses the kindness of small town folk by allowing them to believe that he is a crippled young farmer looking for cash to repair his property. He then gulls them into believing that on his land is a miraculous spring with waters capable of healing even such hopeless arthritics as himself. This causes the townsfolk to scurry to the youth with their life-savings to purchase parcels of the valuable land.
