A modern day snake oil salesman. A charlatan, preacher type (usually a fundamentalist, Protestant Christian) who hawks her/his wares on television, promising miracles of a spiritual, or secular nature if the viewer would just fork over the cash. Think Peter Popoff’s “Miracle Spring Water,” or Jim Bakker’s “Buckets of Survival Food” for doomsday. These types think nothing of draining your grandma’s savings account while tooling around in a pink limo…think back to Jan and Paul Crouch of Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
When my boyfriend met my uncle Fred, he thought he seemed like a used car salesman, or a scamvangelist, because he wanted to sell us a timeshare.
