Counterfeit goods ( Visual )

Fake handbags, watches, shoes, perfumes-the business of counterfeit products is the largest underground industry in the world, generating hundreds of billions of dollars for the perpetrators while sapping the economy, putting lives in jeopardy, and funding organized crime in the process. This CNBC program reports on what has become a global crime spree, in which goods are produced and consumed in a world of high risk and high reward. Viewers discover the challenge of effective port inspections, accompany an LAPD anti-counterfeiting unit on raids, and enter back-room factories where forged items are produced.

Although mobsters and bookies haven't exactly gone away, technology has made illegal gambling more accessible to the everyday person. This CNBC program goes inside the high-stakes world of illicit betting, both online and off, that allows more and more people to cash in-or face prison terms and possibly worse. Viewers meet a professional sports gambler in Las Vegas who legally bets at casinos but also uses illegal corner bookies, and a recovering gambling addict who nearly lost his home, business, and family. Now he heads the Outreach Foundation, which helps compulsive gamblers reclaim their lives. Also featured: the Chicago mob's gambling operations and the first American convicted of running an illegal Internet gambling site
