How to use "Con artist" in context?

Con artist: noun

1. A person who, deliberately or recklessly, swindles or deceived others by posing as someone they are not.

There is no one specific definition of a con artist, as the term can refer to anyone who deceives others for their own gain. Many of the tactics used by con artists are common scams, such as pretending to be wealthy or conning people into investing in bogus schemes. Others take more creative approaches, such as fraudulently obtaining goods or money by deception.

No matter the method, the goal of a con artist is to extract as much money as possible from their prey.
