when the man realized he had been conned, did whatever he discovered come from the person who conned him in some form (like if it was a letter, did said letter come from the con man; if it was a tv/radio ad, did the con man participate in some form in the ad to the extent that it was obvious it was him).

 

Is this problem similar to the simpsons episode, Lisa the Greek? (The wikipedia explanation sucks, but basically, homer subscribes to a betting service that tells half of the participants one result, and half the other result each week. Homer ends up getting lucky and receives the correct pick for several weeks before realizing it's a hoax.)
