The Con Man

Jason Jellick wrote a controversial article published by Salon earlier this week on his life of being a self proclaimed amateur con artist. He started by returning things that he hadn't bought, but only to corporations. He moved on to conning McDonald's drive thru's, hotels and gyms. He got a thrill from trying out different personas, until he realized that what he was doing was not only targeting individuals, but also putting him and his wife in danger.
He caused lost profits, until he realized that he had to leave behind his persona and become someone different.
