Law / Crime , Piracy & Smuggling / Reader's Digest Scoundrels and Scalawags. 51 stories of the most fascinating characters of hoax and fraud. by Reader's Digest Reader's Digest                                                    Reader's Digest 1968; hardback in dust jacket; plastic covering:  639 pages: Synopsis: This , The Reader's Digest book of Scandals and Scalawags  is made up of 51 stories concerning   fascinating characters of hoax and fraud who  range from the patriot   who stole his country’s symbol of freedom from Westminster Abbey  to a  clerk, who  took in millions of dollars “ investing” small sums for his neighbors,  and a dowdy lady pretending  to be Andrew Carnegie’s daughter. The perpetrators of these ingenious crimes are a fascinating and various array of humanity:  charming impostors of both sexes; ,young , old , rich, and those just aspiring to become rich, all   devilishly cunning although sometimes seeming   disarmingly simple:  all chose their victims with diabolical cleverness.  Their  schemes involve impressive sources of funds-  The Bank of England, leading Art Museums,  Treasure-laden Spanish galleons,  the Nazi overlord,  Hermann Goring. The loot they gleaned was enormous,  and their methods and motivations proof that fact can be  more intriguing than fiction.
