Old Confidence Game
Costs Cripple SSOO
ST. LOUIS (MSP) A disabled and unemployed custodian,
Paul Dryer, added his name f. the long fist of people who have
learned that there is no such tiling ar, something tor nothing
lor! week when he lost $1,500 to 4 wo confidence men.
Dryer, whs recently received $2,700 tor injuries he received
while working at *he West End hotel, fell for the old pigeon
First, an "insurance adjuster" dropped by his house and
told him he should have reeceived mere money from the hotel
accident, and led him from the house to make "arrangements"
for his additional sum.
As they were cn their way they spotted a man picking uo
something. The adjuster ran over to the stranger and asked him
what did he pick up. The told them it was a wallet
with a large sum of money, The adjuster demanded that the
money be split three ways. The finder agreed—if Dryer put un
some money for gev.d faith.
The victim rushed to his bank, the Jefferson Bunk and Tru-i
comrr.pany withdrew 5J.500 and returned to the corner and
gave his money to the men. They disappeared across the street,
Dryer waited 11 hours before h concluded that they did not
plan to return.
