ADVERTISED HIS METHOD
OF DEFRAUDING RAILROADS
Clever Confidence Man Made Money
Telling How to Avoid
A clever way of defrauding railroads
out of passenger fare has Just been
unearthed by detectives of eastern
roads and It Is believed that the plan
has been used with entire success on
many of the western systems.
The plan Is for the swindler to step
Into the car lavatory, stand close to the
wall and directly behind the door while
the conductor opens the door and looks
One Frank E. Hogmer of Youngs
town, Ohio, Is the originator of the
scheme and disseminated widely his
knowledge to traveling men and others
by advertising through the use of per
sonel letters that for $5 he would make
known a method by which the payment
of rallrod fare might be avoided.
HOgmer Is now under Indictment at
Youngstown for conspiracy and a
fraudulent use of the malls.
Investigation seems to prove that a
large number of people have profited
by Hogmer's advice, thus defrauding
railroads out of hundreds of dollars
The Railway Protective bureau has
made exhaustive tests to discover
whether or not It Is as easy to defraud
the railway companies as Hogmer as
serted it is, and In Its report says that
the plan is entirely feasible. It is said
that in no Instance did the operatives
report a failure of the scheme.
