Well.. Since the first time you asked, I tryed to find another word but I couldn't .. probably the closest I got is "trambiqueiro". Wich is a bit different...

 

- a caloteiro is an offensive way to call someone who is 'inadimplente'. Who doesn't pay the own bills, and that's it.

 

- a trambiqueiro is always trying to do fool people, make not legal or honest deals. Can also be a caloteiro, but he is trying to find excuses or odd ways to do payments

 

well, I hope someone can find a better synonym for that.
