The true story behind the film AMERICAN HUSTLE
 
The Sting Man is the amazing inside story of Mel Weinberg, one of the most fascinating fast-buck operators to ever live, and the incredible scandals he masterminded. Hustling his way from the streets of the Bronx to hawking bogus businesses around the world, Weinberg netted millions and famously dreamed up Abscam—the infamous FBI-run sting operation of the late 1970's that would bag seven congressmen and one U.S. senator.
