We received dozens of nominations for inductees to the Hall of Infamy (thanks to those of you who sent them!). And, of course, there’s an endless supply of con artists who have earned a spot here. It wasn’t easy to whittle down the list, and there are crooks just waiting in the wings to be added. But, for now, we present this year’s batch of schemers, liars and thieves.
Among them, you’ll find a New Jersey woman who was a liar and a lousy gambler. (Our first step to feminize the Hall of Infamy! We have our eye on a few others who have yet to be convicted…) You’ll also find a fellow who took on a new name and persona to hide his illicit past and run a big con. There’s a music producer who ran an enormous Ponzi scheme offstage and a father-and-son duo whose specialty was convincing senior citizens to hand over their savings.
Check them out — and please continue to send in your nominations!
