How To Spot a Conman

1 He lies

2 He makes exaggerated claims about knowing "senior/influential" people, yet he never names them

3 He makes exaggerated claims about progress being made wrt a business deal

4 He issues threatening emails when he does not get his own way

5 When the threatening emails have no effect, he then argues that they were misinterpreted

6 He avoids discussion of the fundamental issues wrt the deal or business decision, eg completion date, price etc

7 He blames others when things go wrong

8 He has an exaggerated opinion of his own self importance
