Impersonators hide in plain sight. They tell you who they are and back up their claims. Trusting soul that you are, you think, “why would they lie?”

They lie because they want your money and they use other people’s credibility to gain your trust.

Some of these scams are relatively harmless. The con gets a free meal, maybe a hotel room or some other relatively low-value prize.

Other impersonators go for big treasure. They pretend to be movie stars (you’ll hear Tyler Perry tell you about that), rich entrepreneurs or other people you want to be associated with. After all, we all have our little cons to run.

Things aren’t always what they seem to be, but you can be sure that a con artist, knows exactly who they are, what they want and you’ll be the one to give it to them.
