I love Monty Python.
I thought, since my last link was something horribly depressing, I would share a different sort of crime, which, in hindsight, is shocking/funny instead of shocking/horrifying and nausea-inducing. Although I think the guy's victims might not think it's as impressive as they do costly.
This is a rather long article, but it is totally worth it. This guy definitely has some kind of narcissistic personality disorder-issues happening, since he's so eager to tell his story...But the charm thing fits too...
Go forth and read!
