From the highest levels of our government to recent high-profile cases such as Keith Raniere the convicted leader of NXIVM, or Elizabeth Holmes the disgraced CEO of Theranos, Americans seem to have been particularly 'marked' by con-artists in the past few years. In reality however, con-artists have been trading in people's sense of trust since the dawn of civilization.
