A pertinent point I didn't mention: The client had already paid me up front
for the contracted work. He owes me nothing. Possibly one of the reasons I
felt predisposed to help him. The fact that he chose to view my kindness as
gullibility irritated me, but he backed down and laughed a bit when I called
him on it. I see this more as a story of a personal lesson than a profile
of a swindler. Next time I won't be surprised when someone (New Yorker,
Seattleite or anyone in between) tries to put something over on me.
