HOW DOES A CONARTIST TRICK YOU?


Conartists have always existed.  Do your research and write about what kinds of people they are, the tricks they use, who they target and why, and why they succeed. In your conclusion suggest ways in which people can protect themselves. While doing your research, you will learn about famous conmen. You will need to draw conclusions, discover similarities and generalize. When writing your essay, state what generalizations you can make and also provide examples.
