Grifters

What is a grifter exactly?

The common definition is a con man (inclusive term, women can be cons too) who uses lies and deceit to swindle people out of money. The urban dictionary, however, offers a broader definition:

A Grifter, is somebody who can influence anybody, anywhere, at anytime, into doing whatever they choose to have them do, that will result in the grifter’s personal gain. Usually monetary, but really anything that benefits him or her somehow.

It’s absolutely NOT all of these technical things that puts this person in a specific box or particular “genre” of criminal. This person can literally become anyone or anything they want to. Not neccessarily sociopathic, but I’m sure it helps to be dead inside. Learning other people and how they react to any given situation is a must, because that is the core of what a grifter is: a student of human behavior. And once they have that mastered, the world is their playground.
