Plot

A con man, Roger Kingsley, convinces the Los Angeles police that, acting as an insurance company's investigator, he can help them apprehend a notorious swindler, a woman named Mary Webb.

Kingsley sets a trap at a department store and nabs Webb as she steals a mink coat. But while the store detective is contacting police, Webb, who is actually Kingsley's girlfriend, is permitted to escape. Kingsley, meantime, has now gained the trust of the L.A. cops.

In a second scam, Webb and Kingsley bilk a pawnshop owner out of several thousand dollars. She then prepares for their biggest con yet, a stage act at Johnny Gregg's nightclub in which Webb will pose as a clairvoyant. Her psychic powers amaze Gregg's customers, but it's all an elaborate ruse.

The suspicious cops set a trap. A dentist named Braddock is implicated in a murder, but while trying to save the life of what she believes to be an innocent man, Webb is tricked into confessing her scam in front of the club's entire audience. She and Kingsley are carted off to jail.
