Exploiting others for one's own benefit uttering falsehood and not honoring commitments has become a way of life with many individuals these days. This behavior is cheating. This can be intentional or unintentional. The latter is followed by an apology on realization but the former has no apology and is considered something natural, a hallmark of capability and an ordinary event in life. The devilish mentality of many people is increasing. Cheats have diversified their operations and enjoy a field day. They will be apparently friendly especially to one vulnerable to treachery and cheating. People are lured to part with their valuables and the wealthy are silently attacked and looted. Cheating is done for financial gains, material possessions and pleasures. Often there is a touch of sophistication in the dealings of cheats.

Big cheats ask for large-scale assistance running to millions of rupees from individuals and institutions. The book explains some areas including business, finance, employment, education, marriage, travel and sections of society where cheats have safely entrenched and expand their activities with benefit to themselves and harm to others. Professionals and politicians have also adopted this evil feature in their operations. The cumulative effect of all these agencies together with the judicial system as it functions today contribute to bestow on cheating the status of an industry promoting and perpetuating unethical practices. These are seen in exaggerated claims of advertisements which are misleading, poor quality of goods and services, malpractices like short weight, emergence of corporate and financial more
