Has anyone watched the documentary, Hunting The Catfish Crime Gang on BBC iPlayer?

I recently came across a documentary called Hunting The Catfish Crime Gang on BBC iPlayer which was focused on fake profiles on social media and what goes on behind them. It was insane. It starts of with James Blake who is sort of an online influencer, business type person investigating fake profiles of him but he ends up in south east Asia, where there are these offices with thousands of human trafficking victims being forced to scam through social media and fake profiles and they actually get recruited on social media too, thinking it's a real Job they're going to but end up being held prisoner and electrocuted, beaten up etc if they dont scam people , it's actually insane.
Really good documentary to be honest if you haven't watched it .
