Richard O'Neal Jones has spent most of his life as a professional hustler, practicing such scams as a welfare fraud ring that made him more than $300,000--and landed him in prison. Now, the 46-year-old ex-convict from South-Central is using his prowess to warn people about rip-offs like the ones he once organized. "Tips Against Crime" is the title of a book Jones has written, which is due out in September.
