Product Description

You may have seen America's #1 Con Man, Todd Robbins, on Leno, Letterman, or Conan. But it's just as likely you've never heard of him - because Todd is a well-known authority and practitioner of all things deceptive.

Now, in The Modern Con Man Collection, Todd shares his catalog of cons and playful scams. This 3 DVD set shows you how easy it is to scam, bet, and trick your way to a free drink, a few extra bucks at the poker table, and laughs at the expense of your co-workers. Expect to make friends too, with this fun, tongue-in-cheek guide to suckering those you love--and those you'd like to know. This 3-disk boxset includes:

WORKPLACE PRANKS and other Way to Con Your Coworkers

When con-artists find the perfect sucker, they know they need to strike fast. Which is why your nightmare 9-to-5 is every grifter's dream: dozens of marks with nowhere to run. So stop thinking that you're stuck in an office with a bunch of lame coworkers. They're the ones who are stuck there with you!


Sit back and pour yourself a drink. It's the last one you're going to pay for. Todd Robbins shows you why the local bar has always been the best place for a scam artist to find a victim, or "mark." Shot on location in one of LA's "Hottest bars of the year" (Los Angeles Magazine), Todd shares his favorite "bar betchas" games your marks can never win, puzzles they won't solve, and tricks they'll never see coming. These 30 scams include NIM, an Egyptian matchstick game that once won Nick the Greek $200,000 shot glass turnover, a simple challenge that will drive friends crazy... and loads more.

POKER NIGHT GAMES and Other Card-Playing Tricks

The cards have been dealt, wages have been made, and drinks have been served. There's no better set-up for a con artist with a catalog of tricks. Take advantage of the gambling spirit with these games, scams and bets all designed for poker night. Todd Robbins, master of the late-night swindle, shows you 25 new cons including Australian Poker, a variation that won't ever fail you; Best Hand, a poker challenge you opponents will lose as quickly as they accept; No-Chance Poker, a lethal one-on-one game you'll win no matter how often they demand a rematch and many, many more.

Todd Robbins is a very entertaining man. I would gladly pay to see him perform or to purchase a DVD of his performances. That being said, Modern Con Man Collection was a bit disappointing. I expected more. There are some cons that would be great to get a free drink. In fact, there are a few I will try on my friends. However I was expected more details and more complicated Cons. The CD on card cons is too simplistic. An amateur like me needs more direction and details. The last DVD on pranks for coworkers is completely useless. If you are looking for serious pranks or how to get revenge on someone I suggest the Get Even series by George Hayduke from Paladin Press. These are serious and not for the faint of heart. Modern Con Man Collection would be better at $10. For the $20 plus I paid, I don't think I got my money's worth.

Clever, intelligent, entertaining and useful! Robbins proves that man can survive by his mind and wits. More valuable than a college education. There is also a companion book available.
