A very convincing liar. A scam artist pretending to be interested in your well-being or wants you to be interested in someone else's well-being in order to trick you into handing over your money. A person who manipulates your vulerabilities and appeals to your emotions with a touching story or puppy-dog face before asking for a 'financial' gift.
Televangelists such as Benny Hinn are shameless charlatan.
