Have you ever had a con man as a buyer?
Years ago, I had a buyer who wrote an offer on a vacant exciting home close to our Baltimore Harbor. He was so smooth, he was so confident and he was a charmer. It was going to be a quick settlement and I was waiting for his proof of funds before submitting the full price offer.
Did I mention he was smooth?
This charmer made contact with the other agent and was convincing that he had a great investment just for her. He got real 'friendly' with that listing agent with assurance he was buying.
She was somehow smitten and gave him the keys to this property... not only before settlement but before it was ratified, which never happened.
He, along with some friends, moved in, had some wild parties and did some serious damage.

'Con' is short for confidence.
'A con man gains trust and confidence and then is able to cheat the victim.'
