Hipster Griftster

Is "Hipster Grifter" just another way of saying "Modern Con Man"? We hope so since the phrase is getting tossed around a lot these days, thanks to Kari Ferrell -- actually thanks to Gawker, which has been our definitive source on the story. Here are a couple of their links

it's a con: there ain't no such phrase as "Hipster Grifter" in the conman's The Complete Lexicon of Con Words [Bloomingberg's Press, New York, 1961 editon, compilled by Alfie P. Nonish]. -- You should know better than to put this sort of mis-information about!
