Summary "A sucker is still born every minute. In this modern and interconnected world, con-men are lurking everywhere, and it's never been easier for them to dupe us, take from us, and infiltrate our lives. R. Paul Wilson is a con-man who works for the other side--our side. He has spent a lifetime learning, performing, studying, and teaching about the ins and outs of the con world in order to open our eyes to the dangers lurking around us-- and to show us how not to get taken. Paul has never made a living as a con man, profiting off of marks. Instead he has used his expertise to help people avoid cons"--Dust jacket.
