Some might regard him that way. The oldest of the four versions of the Gospel that we have, the one named for Mark, reports that such accusations were made against Jesus during the time he was actively preaching. Refuting those accusations is one of the major themes of that particular book.
In another place (in the book named for Matthew), Jesus suggests a way to decide whether we're dealing with con artists or trustworthy teachers: "By their fruits you shall know them." If you can see that the preacher is running some kind of scam, for his own benefit, that exposes the truth about him.
The Gospels are pretty clear that Jesus was NOT doing any such thing. He confronted many religious leaders--just the sort of people to whom a con artist would suck up--and accused them of hypocrisy and scams for their own enrichment. If he was really such a ripoff artist himself, he'd almost certainly have pursued an approach that made him wealthy, and comfortable, and above all, not likely to be tortured and executed.
That doesn't mean, of course, that all the people who claim to be following him, and teaching what he taught, are equally honest and reliable. When he talked about evaluating preachers "by their fruits," he was warning of just such cons. There have been plenty of "false prophets" (as he labeled them) since Jesus, and many of them have invoked his name and reputation as part of their scams.
But it seems to me that Jesus himself is very definitely not one of those, and not on their side. You'll have to reach your own conclusions, but I suggest you base them on the stories in the official ("canonical") gospels, the books named for Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. And on how his followers discussed his teachings, afterward.
