'Hustling' (1975) is based on Gail Sheehy's well researched book of the same name. The book was released on January 1, 1973 and, according to Amazon, is out of print. I might have to hustle in order to get a used copy of the book.

Netflix has a new series called, "The Girl in the House...." It was very good for a lazy Saturday.
I watched a documentary on Netflix called "The Tinder Swindler." It told the story of a con artist who met women on Tinder. This one women kept giving him money even after she found out who he was.

I started watching "Inventing Anna." It is quite unbelievable that she was able to deceive US banks. My progression with watching the series is painfully slow as time is scarce. Once I am done it's on to the swindler.
The Tinder Swindler is a good watch. I can't believe he spent just 5 months in jail while those women are saddled with massive debt. It rankles me that he ruined so many lives and got to walk away. Maybe a suitable target for Anonymous once they are done with Russia!!
The scammers are extremely skilled and they are not wired to give a damn about anyone except themselves. Is it like a cult? I dunno. It is definitely a pita.
The Magic of Belle Isle. Morgan Freeman, as always, brings us just the something we need. Today, this movie brings some smiles and motivation.
I do not do Netflix and I have not seen the Anna thing. However, I have a hubby who is in a similar trap. He continues to believe the nonsense.
I finished Inventing Anna. Boring ending but fascinating persona. I also watched the Swindler. Can't believe he is free wheeling. Horrible person but fascinating persona as well. He and Anna together? Some people just want to be loved by someone. Sad when it skews your judgement and better sense. I wonder if those scammed women, men, etc. might have benefitted from speaking to someone close and trustworthy.
