Flimflam Scam - A Confidence Trick Used by Scammers

Flimflam is when someone plans a complicated scheme for tricking people out of their property or money. Some persons spell it this way "flim flam". Many flimflams are some version of a con, or "confidence game," in which the con artist first gains the trust or confidence of the victim, and then swindles money from him/her.
