A fool and his money are soon parted, so the saying goes. And if the job is done right, the fool doesn't even realise it has happened until the con artist has moved on to the next victim or the next town. In this entertaining and eye-opening book, Dennis M Marlock, a retired policeman and chairman of the board for the international law enforcement organisation Professionals Against Confidence Crime, takes the reader into the mind and greedy heart of the con man. You will learn the mechanics behind famous swindles such as the pigeon drop, the Jamaican switch, bank-examiner schemes, three-card monte and even fortune-telling. If you have ever read a news story about a sucker getting taken and wondered how he could have fallen for that, you need to read this book before an honest-faced stranger offers you a deal too good to pass up.
