Usage notes[edit]

In Spain, the difference between timar and estafar and their corresponding derivatives is that estafar typically has to do with graver offense in conning and swindling than timar does. Estafar is more of an action that you could be potentially arrested for. Keep in mind as always that this can vary regionally, and in some places both terms may be entirely synonymous.
