Abstract:

"These puppets have been: doctors, attorneys, policemen, psychologists, teachers, clergymen, and John Q. Public. Have you ever done anything you didn't really want to do? Have you ever had that 'gut-level feeling' that something was wrong but couldn't put your finger on it? These games are perfected in prison, but are games everyone should know. Here - for the first time, is a book that - For correctional employees, provides one of the most effective tools for the behavior control of prisoners. For the public, exposes the scam or fraud and teaches how to recognize and prevent the processes criminals apply in society. This is a non-technical book that anyone can understand and use in his or her daily life. "Games Criminal Play, and How You Can Profit By Knowing Them" is a very important book. Almost daily one reads in the newspapers of various scams perpetrated on the American public. It is a unique book; no one else has revealed before this, the anatomy or structure, of set-ups, or criminals' plots. The cases in this book are not only informative, but intensely interesting"--Unedited summary from book cover.
