What does it mean "run a hustle on someone"?

I have learned to recognize when someone's trying to run a hustle on me.

Does it mean to have a go at someone?

    It means someone is trying to trick you or con you, usually to get your money.

    When you bought that little bag of dried green leaves that the kids told you was marijuana and it turned out to be oregano - that was a hustle.
