Go on a backstage tour to learn the true fraud secrets of financial scams - the plots, plans, and scripts swindlers use to separate you from your money


The function of a scam is always to sway present action toward future hopes.



Basis for the Script:

All con artists know that anyone, and I do mean anyone, can be a victim.  This is especially true if the target is convinced that he or she is too smart to be conned and that only other people get swindled.  Truth be known, the thought of being swindled doesn't really even enter most people's heads.

But you see, con artists count on that very thing: your deep down willingness to believe what you hear, your desire to trust.  Humans have an intense need to believe in magic and this affects the confidence artist's every move.

Therefore, every fraud is a carefully choreographed play, complete with the magic of smoke and mirrors, illusion, misdirection, drama, intrigue, and sleight of mind.

The only one without a copy of the script is you - The Victim.
