Let’s face it: sometimes, crime does pay. Our society has always had a certain fascination with those grifters, con-artists, and swindlers who have managed to make a fortune through sheer audacity, balls the size of hot-air balloons, and the naiveté of their hapless victims.
Whether it’s epic con-artist Frank Abagnale of Catch Me If You Can fame, Ponzi scheme mastermind and stockbroker Bernie Madoff, evangelical snake-oil salesmen (take your pick), or such fictional characters as Jay Gatsby, Saul Goodman, John Constantine, the truth can’t be denied—we love to hear about the great exploits of modern society’s greatest scammers.
And then there are the smaller fry—those whose aim was far less ambitious but who, nevertheless, will remain enshrined in the history books as nothing less than legendary. Our story today is about precisely such an individual.
