    [synopsis] => As long as there have been people willing to believe the unbelievable, people have been duped. In the best storytelling tradition, readers can follow the tales of:

• How the Nazis planned to destroy the British economy during World War II by flooding the world with millions of fake British banknotes
• How an infamous radio broadcast had American citizens convinced that Martians were invading the country
• How one of the 20th century's most elaborate scams - conducting tours to the lost Tasaday tribe in the Philippines - fooled the world's media and top scientists for nearly a decade.

The author's fascination with the boldness and inventiveness of the swindlers, as well as their motives, makes for a compelling read. The stories instill a sense of disbelief, amusement and even grudging admiration for these ingenious scam artists who often (but not always) meet a bad end.

Accompanied by graphic-style artwork, each tale offers a great escape for readers drawn to true stories presented in a lively fashion.
