"Don't let the term 'Hello Sucker!' refer to you—protect yourself!"
Hello Suckers was created to help protect Chicago consumers and home owners from crooks, cheats, schemes, scams, swindles, rip-offs, and rackets, but also protecting racial minorities from real estate discrimination.
The program is produced in co-operation with The Better Business Bureau of Chicago in 1952.
Hello Suckers is a dramatic reenactment of a consumer falling for a scam.
The organ rifts as the consumer realized that he was a sucker and just how deep he was in trouble.
