* In ''WhiteCollar'', Neal Caffrey, the show's main character, was formerly a con artist before he became a consultant for the FBI in order to keep out of prison. However, if presented with a big enough temptation, he will slip back into his criminal ways because he loves the trill too much. It becomes a constant question on the show if Neal can ever fully reform or if he and his supporters are only fooling themselves.
