I can't believe the most common definition has been left out.

A grifter is someone who swindles you through deception or fraud.

Synonyms include fraudster, con artist, cheater, confidence man, scammer, hustler, swindler, etc.

2) "The first rule of grifting is, you can't cheat an honest man."

1)A confidence man/woman. The term was used by professional con artists in the 19th and 20th centuries to describe people in their profession. The Grifters, a 1963 noir fiction novel by Jim Thompson, portrayed a family of grifters who are all emotionally managed. . The characters describe being "on the grift" the way someone else might describe drinking and drugs. "I can stop any time I want," says Roy to his mother. .
2) (modern) A sell out in the political opinion world. This noun is increasingly used by progressives (and some conservatives) to describe people such as Candace Owens and other opinion makers whose conservatism is seen as facile and inorganic, born mostly out of of a need for corporate funding than actual convictions.
1.) “As for working with a partner, he didn’t like that either. It cut the score right down the middle. It put an apple on your head, and handed the other guy a shotgun. Because grifters, it seemed, suffered an irresistible urge to beat their colleagues. There was little glory in whipping a fool—hell, fools were made to be whipped. But to take a professional, even if it cost you in the long run, ah, that was something to polish your pride.”
― Jim Thompson, The Grifters, 1963

2) "He used to be an original voice, but after meeting the Koch Brothers, the radio host underwent a personality change. Instead of nuanced analysis, he repeated well-worn right-wing talking points, causing his colleagues to suspect he had been corrupted into being a grifter.

A semi-mythical video circulating on the internet, said to depict a horrific murder or occult sacrifice of newborn babies. All those who have seen the video report intense nightmares, hallucinations and psychological trauma as effects of watching it. A famous staple of /x/ and numerous other forums dedicated to the paranormal; it is rumoured to be posted on youtube occasionally, but is always quickly taken down. Whenever The Grifter enters the topic of conversation on the above-mentioned forums, people will warn against watching it, even begging you not to ruin your life.
My friend watched The Grifter for a laugh, he cut his wrists afterwards.
The Grifter is scarier than slenderman.

Loyal fans of the TNT show Leverage from Dean Devlin, John Rogers and Chris Downey and starring Oscar winner Timothy Hutton, Christian Kane, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, and Beth Riesgraf. Guest stars have included Mark Sheppard, Jeri Ryans, Griffin Dunne, Wil Wheaton, Apollo Robbins, Brent Spiner, and many others, plus John Schneider and Richard Chamberlin in upcoming Season 3 episodes.

The show is a high energy, well-written, edge of your seat thrill-ride with unique characters and witty dialog. And they blow shit up! It gets under your skin and Grifters go through DTs without it causing them to flood the fansites and social networking sites looking for fellow Grifters.

Twitter is a popular hot-spot for them to hang out because the stars and crew are generous with behind the scenes videos and pictures. Grifters live for those moments! Also there are fan pages for most of the stars that Grifters frequent!

The name Grifters was given to the fans at the first Leverage convention - CON-Con - in Portland, OR 2010 by Dean Devlin. CON-Con re-enforced the fan's beliefs that the cast and crew are as kick ass as they seem making the Grifters love them more.
~ Dean Devlin: The runner up for the winner is - Trekkies who screw. But the winner is determined by all the voting members of Electric Entertainment, which includes me and only me. We're gonna go with Grifters.

~ Tim Hutton to the Grifters: Let’s go steal us a convention!

~ Behold the power of fangirls, Grifters, and KANIACS!
