    Question how to use "con"

    There are 2 version of the usage of "con":

    by Cambridge dictionary:
    - They conned $200 out of him.

    by Oxford dictionary:
    - They conned him out of $200.

    Are they all natural to English natives?
    Which one do English natives prefer?
    I am not an English native, so I do not know which one to use.
    thanks no end.

    I believe that either one would work just fine. I would tend to use the second sentence, however. You con a person, not the money.
