So I know that the name of the con where a conman sets up a fake betting parlor, or fake prizefight is called a "Big Store" con. Yellow Kid Weill used to do a thing where he'd get fake copies of magazines printed saying he discovered a mine and insert them into libraries for his marks to find and validate his claims. Is there a SPECIFIC name for that kind of con?
