Summary

A highly entertaining, scurrilous and fascinating book on Australian con men (and women) and all their dirty, devious tricks. There are con men you fear and con men you hate, and con men with amazing stories who take your breath away with their dirty tricks and sheer brazen effrontery. Con artists often revel in the image of a larrikin but this book will push beneath the veneer to delve into the true nature of the evil these people do and the long lasting damage, emotional and financial, suffered by their victims.
