By Nate Hendley
For anyone interested, I do presentations based around my true-crime books.
I have given presentations in libraries, bookstores, schools, and retirement homes across Ontario.
My presentations generally last one hour. I require no special equipment, although a lectern and microphone are always appreciated.
My two main presentations are:
Cons, Scams and Frauds
This presentation is built around my book, The Big Con (published 2016 by ABC-CLIO).
The presentation examines con artists and scams, from Charles Ponzi (from whom we get the term “Ponzi scheme”) to Bernie Madoff, the Nigerian Prince email (in which random recipients receive an unsolicited email supposedly from a Nigerian royal figure, about a great business opportunity), old-fashioned scams, such as the “pig-in-a-poke” and “money machine” frauds and other forms of financial deceit.
The lecture is informative and entertaining, with an overall message intended to warn people about potential scams and how to avoid being ripped off.
“Nate Hendley recently gave a talk about cons and scams at our Probus Club. I found that the presentation was very well researched and documented. Nate’s style of delivery is very engaging and informative. Our members really enjoyed the presentation; it was one of the best of the year. It’s obvious that Nate is very well qualified in his area of expertise.”

Steven Truscott: Decades of Injustice
This presentation is built around my book of the same name, which looked at the tragic case of a small-town Ontario teenager wrongfully convicted of murder in 1959.
I charge reasonable rates and can present anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. For more information, contact me at: email@example.com
