The Pigeon Drop

This type of con game is probably more frequent than reports indicate due to the reluctance of many victims to admit their foolishness. Swindlers will approach the victim and claim they have found a large sum of money. They offer to share it with you, but require you to put up some of your money to show your good faith. You are given a phoney address to pick up your money and sadly never see the money or the swindler again.
