Overview

Don't learn about the con artist the hard way: With How Con Games Work, spot him and his tricks before he can relieve you of your cash!

A shrewd businessman and skilled actor, the con artist has many faces, and flimflam authority Henderson shows you just what to look for. Threecard monte, the badger game, the wire, pigeon drop, handkerchief switch, obituary hustle, and door-to-door home repair scams have been around for ages, and Henderson explores them in detail, as well as spiritual bunco (the seance, gypsy blessing), romance bunco, modern-day quackery (mail-order sex and beauty enhancers, tonics, electrical gadgets), investment scams (oil-lease lands, precious metals, distributorships), and more.
