Loyal fans of the TNT show Leverage from Dean Devlin, John Rogers and Chris Downey and starring Oscar winner Timothy Hutton, Christian Kane, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, and Beth Riesgraf. Guest stars have included Mark Sheppard, Jeri Ryans, Griffin Dunne, Wil Wheaton, Apollo Robbins, Brent Spiner, and many others, plus John Schneider and Richard Chamberlin in upcoming Season 3 episodes.

The show is a high energy, well-written, edge of your seat thrill-ride with unique characters and witty dialog. And they blow shit up! It gets under your skin and Grifters go through DTs without it causing them to flood the fansites and social networking sites looking for fellow Grifters.

Twitter is a popular hot-spot for them to hang out because the stars and crew are generous with behind the scenes videos and pictures. Grifters live for those moments! Also there are fan pages for most of the stars that Grifters frequent!

The name Grifters was given to the fans at the first Leverage convention - CON-Con - in Portland, OR 2010 by Dean Devlin. CON-Con re-enforced the fan's beliefs that the cast and crew are as kick ass as they seem making the Grifters love them more.
~ Dean Devlin: The runner up for the winner is - Trekkies who screw. But the winner is determined by all the voting members of Electric Entertainment, which includes me and only me. We're gonna go with Grifters.

~ Tim Hutton to the Grifters: Let’s go steal us a convention!

~ Behold the power of fangirls, Grifters, and KANIACS!

A grifter is a disgusting human, waste of oxygen, that comes out of the "woodworks" right before someone is dieing, kisses ass, does whatever it takes to ensure he/she gets that inharitance. Makes themselves look good, nice, when infact they're sitting back with a sinical laugh knowing the evil work they're doing. Most commonly is a family member that before has never wanted anything to do with the person they're kissing ass to gain from. Watch out for anyone who cares for your loved ones as well. They're sneaker piece of shit grifters.
That family member is a grifter .

She's just waiting for him to die so she can get his estate.
