“Demaskator” (“The Exposer”) is a new reality show on the Polish market. Its main objective is to uncover the most common methods which swindlers and frauds use to trick and manipulate naive and gullible victims. The host who knows all the trickery and deception inside out receives notifications of frauds via phone, website, as well as Twitter and Facebook posts, and he then presents the cases to the viewers.
Together with the filming crew he visits the victims to hear their side of the story. He gathers all the important details and available information. Later on, he meets the swindlers to expose their wrongdoings. Not only does the program warn the viewers against possible danger, but it also rescues them from dramatic situations. Sometimes the host risks his own health or life by exposing the secrets of how the criminals operate. In one of the international versions of the program the host was attacked with a knife when the episode was filmed.
