A confidence trick or confidence game (also known as a con, hustle, scam, scheme or swindle) is an attempt to fraud a person or group by gaining their confidence. Confidence men or women have victimized numerous individuals from all walks of life.

Confidence tricks exploit typical human qualities such as greed, dishonesty, vanity, honesty and compassion. The common factor is that the mark relies on the doings and words of the con artist.

Love is a confidence trick. Don't fall for it.
