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 effontery. How do they get away with it?
Written by bestselling author Matthew Benns, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a rollicking roll call of all the worst and most outrageous scammers and dodgy dealers, a true crime book that will have readers gasping in disbelief at the sheer effrontery of these Aussie crooks and amazed at the gullibility of their victims. 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.
