To a poor Irish boy, ripping off aristocrats was par for the course (Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, 1975).

Barry is forced to run from his home in Ireland after he has killed an army captain in a duel.  He joins the English army, but while fighting on the continent, he runs away and is shanghaied into the Prussian army.  To gain his freedom, he agrees to have himself hired into the service of the Chevalier de Balibari (with eye patch) and report his movements to the police.  Instead, he confesses to the chevalier that he has been sent as a spy, and the chevalier agrees to keep him in his service for appearance's sake.  Together they wander France enriching themselves by setting up casinos in country houses and cheating at cards.  (The narrator doesn't say, but it can be assumed that the owner of the country house receives a percentage.)
