As a dancer, they say, George Perkins wasn't much. But, heavens, what a charmer. He didn't just shake your hand when he met you. He enfolded it warmly and pulled you close. He sent flowers. He called constantly. There were movies, dinners, moonlit strolls. And he was so good-humored that even the police were struck by it, even though the 56-year-old man is suspected of defrauding at least a dozen elderly women throughout the United States and Canada.
