The con man uses family relationships, guilt, pity, and a host of other tricks in his bag to get the hardworking, honest, devout person to get snared in their schemes. Church can become a fertile field for these kinds of operators, and God's children need to remember that our Lord told us to be "wise as serpents" as well as being "harmless as doves." Proverbs exposes the techniques used down through the ages by con men and women who try and sell special deals where it is impossible for us to lose our money and where the returns will be beyond our wildest dreams. Beware when it sounds too good. Look out for the hand that is pickpocketing your wallet. Read what Proverbs says about con men and criminals. It could save you a fortune.
