Well just to fill up some space here cause I don't feel like blogging for now here's a wiki for CONMAN! Hope Malaysiakini and Bukit Aman interviews this Conman one day...
A confidence trick or confidence game, also known as a con, scam, swindle, grift, bunko or flim flam, is an attempt to intentionally mislead a person or persons (known as the "mark") usually with the goal of financial or other gain.
And Wiki is coming up with a FRAUD Wiki site!
Welcome to the Fraud Detection and Prevention Wiki
The purpose of this Wiki is to provide a source of information on the many different types of fraud and the techniques available to organisations for detection and prevention. As the methods of fraud become more sophisicated and complex so the use of modern statisical techniques to detect and predict fraud become more important. This Wiki attempts to bring together information on this rapidly developing subject.
The Wiki is still under-development and will be set loose in April 2007. In the mean time, if you have any suggestions we would welcome your ideas: see FraudWiki:About.
The term "Internet fraud" generally refers to any type of fraud scheme that uses one or more online services - such as chat rooms, e-mail, message boards, or Web sites - to present fraudulent solicitations to prospective victims, to conduct fraudulent transactions, or to transmit the proceeds of fraud to financial institutions or to others connected with the scheme.
