For most of us, VIP access and screaming fans are pure fantasy, accessible by a famous few. But what if you're lucky enough to resemble one of the most well-known singers on the planet?

We speak to Ty Jones, who uses the fact that he looks like Ed Sheeran to get the red carpet treatment and trick his way into some of the world’s most exclusive events. And we speak to YouTubers Josh Pieters and Archie Manners, who created the ruse to get him into an event alongside Justin Bieber and Wiz Khalifa.

In a series of candid interviews, Fakes, Frauds & Scammers relives some of the most audacious scams and fraudulent stunts of our time from the mouths of the perpetrators themselves. Whether it’s money, fame or simply an addiction to lying, we find out what motivated these tricksters and whether the highs, lows and ramifications were worth it in the end.
