Beware of Fraudulent Men

It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Psalm 118:8

One of the man-made plagues of the modern era continues to be monetary scams, created by deceitful ‘Confidence Men’ attempting to sham their way into your pocket book or bank account. Although there are numerous types of scams, the primary definition holds true: a ‘grifter’ (one who makes a mark) convinces a ‘victim’ to gain the grifter’s trust. Once the con-man has obtained the victim’s trust, he will likely convince the victim that there is money to be made for completion of a task, often involving an initial investment of money.
