English | July 9, 2015 (1976) | ISBN: 1590775279, 0871311887 | EPUB | 372 pages | 3.7 MB

Jay Robert Nash takes you into the real and fascinating world of the criminal elite—the con man.

Hustlers and Con Men is an entertaining look at the boldest, most sophisticated, most wildly imaginative criminals of the past 200 years, including the Gondorf brothers, Lou Blonger, Charles Ponzi, Madam Zingara, "Paper Collar Joe" Kratalsky, and hundreds of others. Here, too, are their extraordinary schemes: the mail-order flim-flam, the lonely hearts racket, the gold brick con, the inherited billions bilk, the "spirits" game, the once-in-a -lifetime business opportunity, the Peter-to-Paul scam, and a whole bag of other tricks you've probably never heard of.

Another intriguing cornucopia of crime from Jay Robert Nash!
