A spoof merchant is a person who has similar characteristics to that of nineteenth century civilian, whose livelihood is dependent on his ability to create slight of hand or illusions, whilst creating some sort of distraction in order to rob an unsuspecting victim of their monies or valuable personal items.
"I just had my monacle stolen, from inside my jacket pocket!" proclaimed the wealthy middle-class gentleman. "He was most forthright in his questioning. He wanted to know where paddington station was. WHAT A little spoof Merchant he was!"
