Abstract:

In Florida Scams, Victor Knight has compiled a set of his "Granddaddy's Rules" that can help a person see through the "smooth-talking jaspers" who over the years have taken advantage of Florida's loophole-laden tax laws and laissez-faire attitudes and bamboozled victims out of billions of dollars. Witty, informal, and sprinkled with down-home Florida vernacular, Knight's tales of the shady characters and scam artists are as informative as they are entertaining. Knight also explains how Boca Raton is a city based on the scam (like Treasure Island) whose very name comes from the confidence game that put it on the map. Highly recommended!
