Bellevue is the name of the listener. Leonard today right so he says hey scam got us and guess okay. Hello i'm greg analogy precisely for the structure of the show. So i'm going to skip pass the most but i will say there is a leg twenty twenty shot in here and guys we fucking dated leg twenty twenty. You guys went viral. With the shit's you've got let you shirts. In those shirts pros the proceeds went to black lives matter. That's the time where all the proceeds going to from your wolf. So you know you always also do we all support off the top at all. I didn't and i regret that. I sorely regret it but i did not skim off of the top. So guys we did it. We got them legs to the polls and and we love it. If you're in georgia runoffs happening is probably this week. Not i don't think so at all. I'm pretty sure a runoff process. Playing okay so justice into runoffs in january let me stop spread misinformation to vote on the wrong day. I'm meant but yes guy. Shanna to georgia followers. If y'all out there to georgia the day through may show you get out. I'm guest charles. Goes he's la- digits. The goes. I believe it so stay woke because it's probably going to be a run out often. We don't need those seats so you're gonna have to get out there and get that leg back to the poem on georgia. Keep that momentum. Going for those georgia peaches and those legs. You heard pulse back to bellevue. We all get there. What the hell we came here to do. You'll get there. You actually getting into a pretty quickly as say seven minutes ain't bad okay. So so belleville says. My name is bill via devo. I'm a latino who lives in the wrong. bk forever. He said hey. He lives in a very italian neighborhood. The first time someone tried to run this possible scam is started the same way so he said someone pulls up in his like. That's my young. And he's like see and sure because he doesn't like to talk to strangers and if you don't get means just means spanish but also like there's no official language of the. Us you guys should know that right. That's a fact so guy continues. He says i'll give you this jewelry for money so that we can me which is billboard vo. He says i don't have money. I'm so sorry and walks away which you know. What bells mart. You did the right thing. The guy tries to talk to a more and he says sorry and he walks away so the first time he didn't write in because he was like i dunno scam real. It could have just been random. And i didn't fall for it fast. Forward to the pandemic new york city and twenty twenty the day before the election. I believe ooh recent. We love fresh very fresh. He says he rarely goes outside. Okay a distancing king respect a duke distance and when we do go outside i wear a mask okay coup. That's what you should do. So he says a different guy in a different car. Same story same type of ring. Same family guilt trip. He said this time it was a guy who asked if he speaks spanish again and he had a car seat in the back of the car and a woman in the back seat. Assume ably with the baby but he couldn't see the baby So again Belva says i don't have any cash and the guys lead. But i'll give you this ring for gas money. And he's like sorry no cash and he crosses the street so he said. I guess this is a popular scam because it's the same neighborhood in the same pickup line. The whole give you jewellery to get gas things the same thing and family in the back seat assab story basically the whole same grip so then he did some google's nice we love google and the san francisco gay said drivers. Beware of roadside scammers offering gold for cash. It's fake now. I know you know guess hat. Is it gold ring. no In parts of california san francisco you actually made me to give up your beds. Okay scoring right. Listen i used to sell those. What i worked for redacted rings companies and my mom used to work there so she got me a job on campus. Scam and my job was social media coordinator so post on facebook and i post on instagram about making money. Doing that thing. And i would have to sit at the table. Do you want to ring. And i gotta ring for free. It was nobody has a class ring anymore. That ugly piece of jewelry. So ugly. And i'm so grateful i never spent any money on any and they will try to do like for ladies for the girl is a tiny one little. Yeah and it's just not. I lost my. I never had one. I never ever even as a kid. I was like this just seems like a bad investment. You did the right thing. I mean back in the day when it like degrees really fucking mattered. It was like a networking tool you. Hajer on it'd be like oh shit i see you. That's what it's all about those panthers the panthers it's kind of cat i don't know i went to pitt. Penn state like amir. I'm sure it's very puma. Nittany lions yeah. What nittany lion nittany lion is that. A racist t. a. n. y. Thank you chelsea are super producer. Needy lying that's just way too. Specific disrespect to penn state. All day. Fuck you get that. Specifically as a pig gang gain a peacock pitch so yeah that was the whole thing is like you show off that ring and you'd be like oh let's network but now that doesn't fucking matter anymore you know. Education is a scam. But it's also wonderful if you get the right one well. We wouldn't be the examples of that so this is basically another one of those tag on your heartstrings scams. It's like oh my family. The thing that i don't understand about it in new york is like there's like a pot shop on every corner. Uh like how you like. Why are we think you're gonna give us a real ring. You could literally go to the corner and it's going to be a liquor store and then a pawn shop and that's and that's why the scam gets an f from because first of all first of all. You're doing this in the boogie down. Bronx one now make sense out there. Okay and it's just it's just such a just like where can who who has got by this. Apparently some people have like what is the whole point of being like abbas like. What is that supposed to like the bronx. Who doesn't speak old volleyball. Jose hit them with some some real worry. I guess it's supposed to be like a competitor like you know we are the same helped me help us in our people. Our people look. Give me gas money for that. As a complex seems complicated. I just need to know who's got in got by this. And did you keep the ring you'll keep doing. I love doing that. References from hey martin o. Keep the money okay. thank you know it. Was this episode where you know how to live in building a border house. You know and i don't know listen. I don't know about arnold. i didn't have cable growing up. So was this she on some. It was like this old fug boy a woman. His mum was always paying bills. Always paying a radio show talent so on nickelodeon his woman and it was the right. It was a fun boy his bottom beach as she was always paying for everything always hold him down and then one day he like came across some money or something like that and like which was like you really about to take this or whatever and he was fifteen and then at the end he came back and redeemed himself when he was like you.

It's time for historic hood. My favorite part of the show. This is where i will regale priscilla with a famous hoodwink. And we'll get her opinions all throughout and we're talking about a very special one today guys. We're talking about millie. Vanilla song cong giving there. It's a girl you know is true. Who knows okay. Grow is in born when they were will. I was proud of that. Oh god so. Vanilla was a german french. Aren be duo from munich. The group was founded by frank. Ferry and consisted of fab moron and rob palatis. They became one of the most popular acts in the late. Eighteen eighteen eighty turn of the century with millions of records sold and one. They won a grammy for best new artist. In one thousand nine hundred ninety however though success turned to infamy when it was discovered that they did not seeing any of the vocals to their music releases their music releases. What am i gonna like as am an anchor now. Lucky i'll see you on the connor. Abc scam eight. That was the biggest scam surely enjoy. Twenty that's my biggest scam. That i've done so far is sitting in this chair and being you should be fucking is a crime. So the making of milli vanilli. I have to say. I don't know if this would have been such a huge scandal if it happened now because it's like with auto tune and how much we do to fix people's voices and change them. And how do you artists actually seeing live concerts and performances. Like is it really that wild to not saying your own music. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say yes like your house. All the singers we got in attala cts and weddings these days. You know what i mean. I got ahead in jail. Bahadur's spot on twitter too. I like this. Oh oh i got the give button on to whisper gods. Now i eat go now. Here's my thing. I do think it would be a problem today. Because in the end we still expect the artists to be able to sing their actual songs. Today on okay you bet. It's not equivalent at all away long how she would go to every actor way. You can't do a kick flip into a backflip off of a building and if you only believe you believe you. Vin diesel. Flip them cars. Sure is he really even ball beyond trust anything. That's trust the person who doesn't since tom cruise and that's because he's crazy that's going be felt anything on the eighties just like no. I'll jump under the car. We're going to be in the movie that we don't own that car. Let's just getting in case. That's the pedestrian driving a car like we we should dude. I definitely think like no you. Can you know you would still get dragged by the media if you okay remember when Jessica simpson's a little sister. She got she got caught lip. Synching tried however will still drag for that g. Go ahead again. I love that song in the fun rings. And i hear the tag men clara via roskam. I everyone sewing right. I'm gonna stop and it's hard. It's hard i just. I would be in my opinion would be scandal. Even to maybe. Maybe you're right okay. Thank sing that that. Oh yes he he was like. I wish he would talk about my voice singer. But i am and what he says in wisconsin he ever wisconsin was around the take it to imagine and whiskey wrap you surely truly a moment artistry frank fairy a german record producer was in a disco in his native country when he heard the song girl. You know. it's true by the baltimore band numero and immediately knew it could be a bigger say is true. You said that So he started recruiting singers in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight seniors linda. Jodie rocco saying. Backup and charles shaar rapped on the track. Okay so this is because he decided that he was gonna assemble a team to recreate the version of that song. Taking the original hip track and missing it with a little bit of euro dance. I mean what a dumb move like. The song was a hit. The one that you were very in the original dedi. I mean here's my thing and this is i think why this was probably doomed from the start they would go was an icy i. I didn't know that they were put together for us song. I thought there were put together as a as an actual group. We'll so this is just the song the so this is where it started. So this is fairly and being like oh. I like the song lot. I'm gonna steal. I'm ahead with the remix. I'm going to give it some flavor. But then he found people to sing the song right or he just sleeps singers to sing the song right right. Yeah so period. Mid so basically what happened was he started recruiting singers in one thousand nine hundred seniors. Linda and jodie rocco sang backup and charles shaar wrapped on the check when he played the record for me already knew. The song said shop He told billboard magazine this he said i had been dancing to the new version on the weekends in an american club in hamburg variant played. It and i said this song ain't new. That's exactly how he said it in one thousand nine hundred. Let's continue this song ain't new home. Hey song and then. I said tobel ed. That's how we were talking to the nineties right after So fareed admitted that the song was a new but he still went with it and started mixing the voices. You can't really hear the vocals or exactly who singing because there are so many voices on the course said eventually brad harold and john davis were brought in for vocals. His version of the song quickly became popular in europe. Now he just needed faces to go along with the music group. That's what i mean he. It's like it's empty. It's not real art. No is made for mass consumption in some of it's good. It's not all bad if it even happened the other way round if it was like i put together this amazing band and they came. But it's like. I heard a song and then i like built this monster around it. But then you up producers and writers. They're writing music and song for like whatever model is hot right now. True there's some people can releasing down. Like i think ariana grande day can sing. I don't think she's like drying very hard but she can sing but people music for all the you know what i mean like. It's like there's very few. Gandhi mostly just like models. Now who can carry a tune arm be seen. There's a lot of very beautiful model harder. These dead smoking. The we i'm men stole money from it is. Yeah yes yes you're right. You're right so he was like okay. Gotta find some faces to go with these voices. So this is discovering palatis. And more at the time. Paul more vaughn were dancers living in a housing project in munich. They were pretty poor and we're often stealing food to survive. Wow very came along and offered each of them. Four thousand dollars to become the faces of the duo. Nilly right could definitely move out the projects up a show so he named the duo after the nickname of his girlfriend so his girlfriend was named mcmahon. Was millie bonilla and he was like. That's what i'm gonna call you all. I thought it had something to do with vanilla. But that's fine girlfriend's name was millie meal -joyed called. I'm me look. I fucked with it. It's still a great name so it wasn't new to the game. He had done the same thing with his one thousand nine hundred seventy s disco funk group. Boney m will. That's not a great name with the singer who was actually just a dancer by the way short for millie pony millie and he's just been making it work. He's like milli vanilli bony millie. So again. This is with someone who was also just a dancer who was lip synching own vocals. He was able to hang onto that secret for twenty five years shot very and it was a singer to this is really what this was all about. He was trying to get his vocals on the track. The picture of the sky. So yeah. Can we move photo of him. 'cause i wonder if he's he can't be high. Maybe that's exactly because back in the nineties like it was supposed to be like. I forget who wrote this tweet. They're like remembering the ninety s when we had all the posters of like the hot singers and actors on our walls like we were trying to solve a her own horny murder. And i was like yes. You have to be someone. We could cut out of a magazine and stick on a wall and beal so horny for right. Let me know if you find a picture of. Yeah i it right now so ferrying came back. After the song hit the charts in england and said he had to have two faces for the project. I was already paid twelve thousand dollars for seeing girl and listening waves. Just wait okay. And he said. Keep your mouth shut and you can do the whole album. I'm thinking that studio work for me. This is shocking. So he's already congregation. Favourite and google frank berry and you will understand why he threw so much work to find people who sing his songs. Come on i know. I feel bad. 'cause like we should have more people like you. Who like spongebob. deo caesar. We're like you seeing really well but like hideous. He's this guys are hideous. He's just a interesting looking character off on a positive either. But i mean he's not that he's ugly it's just play who normalized ugly people in music while we're we we've done. We're doing better than we did. In the ninety s the ninety s was like. He had to be like honey superstar. Gosh so shaw is basically saying well. I kept working for him because it was a check. And i needed some coins so and realized how popular the group vanilla was going to become. He would have realize the dancers accents would have been an issue. Palatis had a german accent and more von had a frenchaccent. We'll see. I don't know because like i think about people like craig david who like when he sings he was like why will you creeping 'round and then like like I'll see you pick a disobeys. Yeah like that. Yeah so. I don't think that's a big deal but linda in jodi the two original singers from earlier we'll also brought back in for more vocals so He was like all right. I'm not gonna worry about the fact that they don't have accents or they do have accents. I'm going to just bring in linden. Jody from more vocals and china's gonna come in the studio. He going record stuff They said there was really no plan. We were recording stuff. Real fast to get enough together for a four song. Ep for the american market and more von would come in and go down to the basement where the pool was and hang out for a couple of hours. They'd make appearances then to then go down to the basement but they never sang a note or went into the studio love that they showed up for appearances to record. There's plenty of footage of us. Going inside of your honor. I like you turn your attention to exhibit. My clients went in the studio and they came out hours later. Okay whether any tracks related down none of our business none of our business flash the dedication to having them come and then just like hang out somewhere. I mean like like i can't do a german accent. We all we often call to and cost the school diaz tho to the we swim so much. What in your congregation knows we speak. Yeah chevik i want to go. I am jomon again. Disturbance accents in front jackson's from the american perspective very similar right very easy to mix. It don't do any justice. We're so disrespectful in this country. And i love it. So they're basically pretending cost playing to be artists. I stand so lindsay said that they were kept a distance from the guy that they wouldn't get too close. The real singer was secretly brought in at night and he be changed to the studio late at night. Even after the other staff was gone so that no one would know he was the true voice. Hold up so this guy's coming in masked singer style like the visor over his space. Where all filing cabinet. He's like guys. What do i know you got a record deal you did. Were so excited to work with you here. Just behind this. Bush real quick and not make any noise is were so excited to have your german sony records. Yeah okay we're going to put this blanket over your head. Not all the rage. Michael jackson's doing it to kids. It's like a thing. Just put it on your head come inside the studio so yeah poor guy. Whoever was really singing these songs so they were doing all this shady shit which is very fun to me so looking suspect soon as the music video for girl you know it's true was global. Hit milli vanilli also had four other hit song. Blame it on the. How does blame it on the rain. Ooh boo little mix console but i know congregational layman on lorraine. You don't remember that i remember this. Well your parents well. They won't be jaman to the same. Gave them a bill bill. Then they had a girl. I'm gonna miss you and baby. Don't forget my number which all hit number wine and all or nothing peaked. At number four they were everywhere so movingly was a huge sensation. I wanna way. I don't know if we'll get sued by frank or whoever the fuck actually does think i need to know. I truly need to know. Because i've never heard vanilla saw. Oh please a okay okay. Which one is this regard. You know what. I mean that much to the nineties. They're gonna be very. Hey hey let's answer robbers okay. Where's the phone all intro. You have a ninety s was all in show no song. I'm incoming grow to get here. That's the rapper. And turning that saw oh goodness that's terrible so basically they blew the fuck up right and every time. Hold on. I just wanna tell you like i was alive. They blew the fuck up. They were on everything everywhere like they were the shit. What do you think contributed to the success. Are they hot. But they're fucking hot their models. That's that's also how what we learned about them. Is that the remodels. They're hot really both of them. I'm looking right now to see if they're high if hard Okay they have this wild hair. One of them has a very strong bone structure. Yup i mean. They are given the girls fashion and they were like a whole scene. There were whole vibe to. yeah oh and they. They were wearing eyeliner and millionaire vanilla but he was rocking a lot of concealed. He was like a whole they were. Yeah and then. It's so funny because it looks so much alike but apparently they're not related at all. Okay wow he crochet braids in the lord. Jesus okay so. This is a quote from more von from vanillin. He says every time we gave an interview the reports here my french accent or robs german accent and they say no way how these guys have suddenly songs. Obviously they never heard of craig david ryan or dell or hollow this you get off the record we like all go get me get me fishing. Gps cockney accent they even had dialect specialist broaden paid by the record company to try to help the situation but fast fame didn't make it easy so they blew up so fast they didn't have time to like big accents. Which nowadays. I can have a strong french accent. A german accent and still singing an american one and nobody would be the wise. I have to say. I'm actually surprised that that was even an issue. Raised like i said like ace of base was around this time too and they had you know. They had the ruling northern european accent. And whatever so we didn't we the basically. They said we didn't wanna do anymore. Interviews palatis added the more. We talk the worst thing. Scott their former manager recalled situation to billboard saying i remember there was some some words that fab couldn't pronounce. He had a pretty thick. French guadalupe accent. Oh french guadalupe it. Okay so yeah. Access accents so on the girl i'm going to miss. You couldn't say miss and he would say mass he will say girl. I'm gonna miss you miss. You miss you you say me. Come on meese issue me museum. That's hot okay with that. But i guess the issue is if you can't say me's as you say on the songs i'm not gonna say was right or wrong but if you can't pronounce the same way that you pronounce it on those song people interesting because you're saying it like miss you saying this right. My question is why do we care. I love chaos. I would why do we keep. They could dance right. They are asses off and they was. When i tell you i will not enough and there it is. They were gorgeous. They can dance their asses off and make dating. Start no trouble. They were willing to let somebody take over their lives. Force them into some into labor. They ain't green and they kept you know they showed up every day. Upset them so much shoot up until the recording studio. What's interesting here is like vanilla took so much shit like the owns. That i know of mealy. Vanilla is because of the joke of like. Oh these guys were impostors however they were the ones who orchestrate these scams and favor in the projects and someone came on in the projects. Chilling on the stew out moving on up moving on east side. We're finding a good piece of the german or the french the other one. I was trying to do french in sterile today. Literally were just chilling and was i. Hey for two thousand dollars and you get to go to a pool. Every tuesday to pretend that you're singing about like what exactly this is. A great gig. They have to literally just show up and they're getting paid paid right and they've shitty record deal of course it's probably a three sixty where they own your whole booty hole but also visible to be senior awesome like the company owns everything but it never was yours. Truly you should only sign at three sixty deal if you are 'cause i can't sing or contribute anything but like beautiful looks. I don't know though you should still get somewhere coins for that. Because it was the face because about frank's face wasn't bringing them going yosano to look it up again frank barium prying you. He was so. But i do feel bad for vanilla because they took the head. They weren't even the people who made the name were the people who made the music they were just trying to get out of a bad situation and now they're the laughing stock even though they weren't the bad guys. Yeah i don't know about frank. For what the fuck is i think. I don't know mary and i don't know him. I don't even know mill even ilise name. I just know million finale right. So i feel bad because i never knew. Frank was pulling the strings. I was just laughing villa so on july twenty first nineteen eighty nine while on the club mtv tour in bristol connecticut. Wow have her life fall apart in bristol. Connecticut that's tragic like imagine more. Sad place savvy. life fall. Apart liberal spin on shit everywhere bristol personal growth. Keep it real in bristol. Connecticut bees baby. We'll be having that shit you in the hood now baby and really so more veron more vaughn. Sorry i'm fucking unnamed us. They were seeing their mega hit girl. You know what is true which we just heard which is mostly intro would make sense and make sense to me. Because i'm like okay. I can't say we're just going to have a lot of intro. I'm not mad at good math. So they're singing this. When they're live in tracking began to skip. It was and i just again. First person point of view it was like a national international story. It was like when this happened. Everybody's like dijon. Your he's tracks artists keeping and they're not actually. It was a fucking scandal. The can be like tonight. Many bonelli a fraud now. I know you don't recognize me because most singing voice is very different very different questing. Twenty one savage and i am the same person because twenty savage as bridge. I love the twins british. I love it so much. He liked twenty. One is a knife but they have some measuring twenty-one savage at home bring me the blakey. That's what i think is that's a no. Yeah that's what. The kids call a firearm. The british the british kids know the black ones in blakey sense now so i just think this is so fascinating because they ran off stage. Do we have a clip of them running off stage. Yeah it was like a thing. I wanna i wanna i just need you guys here the hook. Oh my god heard the hook. I'm about so while you're doing that. I'm going to pull up this damn video of running off the stage. When they're backing began to skip. Because i need to know i personally. They shouldn't have run away. Like you gotta stand up like patti labelle and be like my nose are way too much for to negroes mcduck mcguckin projects. Who don't actually saying she said you need. They're not performer. This time they were to die. Stop he knows knows. Eighty thousand people girl. You know know. It's i couldn't repeat fifteen times. Squash stopped paint awareness. Stage brow to me eight thousand people waiting. He said i did not want to go back to stage. And i get it i feel you. I don't know if this is milly or vanilla who's talking. I'm gonna guess familiar because he's blonde vanilla talking but leading want to go back to stage number. Stench bliss is about accents. That's my scam place. No more stage. I think if he stayed just been like the track is skipping. Imagine you are a black person. in germany. moving in the projects ran. Why do shows up offering four thousand flash forward. You don't even know what happens three years later. You're on stage you asking way too much honey. That's too much. They're not real performers. You gotta remember your performer. Like we would know what to do warming for long enough that they can develop skills and they were already dancers were they real dancers or were they just black people who what is the different. I don't know. I don't know i don't know if they're real dancers are like subsidy a black person who can dance but i not here. We a rat now but i have a black person. Who can dan for the shit out of some listen. I'm so sorry now. So drew okay there adjacent to the scam. Yes they weren't the people who created it but they are willing participants. I don't think they're adjacent. When you're willing participant that's not adjacency okay. But they didn't make the scam so throw a rock in the scam. Yeah you hit them. You would hit him if you throw a rock. But they're not like the can make sense. Not you know it's like it's like a run is like the getaway car and they ask you to get in and then you get in. But you didn't actually rob the bank finished. Why are you hanging out with these fuckers. Okay and they did keep a secret because obviously while they're blowing up. They're not like singing. The songs sing at all. There's nothing home. They don't say that they all sing. They don't say that you're right. But that's what i'm saying is like at this point. This has become your career. You got women fawning over you men funding over you. Everybody because you're hot. How much sucks they had during those ear. Right just sticking so like. They're getting everything getting the fame. They're getting the thing is probably a shitty three sixty deal but they're probably getting so many free perks hotels cars jury. Not a shitty three sixty. You don't do nothing. They brought the looks and the dance moves in hollywood. That's a lot as looks a live. Bro c w is hired models. Okay everyone on. The cw was just fucking hot. And they're like get up there and say these words. We told you to say with your perky boobs. So this fact. So i just feel like. They should should've tried to preserve the scam where they should have stood there and been like oh track. He's not working. Mtv fixed track would have been fine. I think really what we're seeing is. They couldn't do it just could and they were just like we're done. I like you know what i mean. I think it was the end of the way. They were constantly afraid that they were going to get found out and cause the moment scammers. And that's what it is is that hilly weren't milly milly. So what is their fault. They weren't true scammer on the show. I love you so much. I just wanna say i sympathize with you guys because you are pure of heart scammers. You're literally chila near project in this man. This really strange looking man came up and offer to four thousand dollars. It's not your fault scammers. We used to the wheel the fact that y'all were so nervous because they were like does absence thus accents. You're already nervous about the accent then. Finally the music skips a you run off. Stage like ran on stage like they were saying they're like and we're out they were too good for the world. I in that that is the sad part of this story. Is that one of them. Killed themselves committed suicide because scandal. You will maybe. He was an overdose. Well the story. The story i heard was that he killed himself. Yes found dead at thirty. Three and frank word april second one thousand nine hundred ninety eight of suspected overdose and they up pay famous in the nineties. So yeah and it was. Because i was like yeah it was really fucking sad and when he now talking about this understanding of the breakdown of shit it's like oh the because i had always understood it to be that. This was their idea that they had whatever. I didn't know basically pump and out by this guy which makes it extra and i never knew that either so guys share this with your friends. Because i truly didn't know that move in. Italy wasn't the orchestrators of because there's so many moving jokes every fucking early. Two thousands late and sitcom was like milli vanilli tongue-in-cheek wink also. A lot of weird denzel references. In the early two thousands denzel was like the michael jordan of that time and there were so many television shows are like. Hey don't come over unless you didn't say washington. Because i want him to walk me. Morgan freeman has a ton of references. About i'm watching happen on. Fox references are like. Oh with if. It's morgan freeman living. No a rub on him. God like what are we doing. That's weird it's weird but so back to this really sad thing chelsea just informed us that he had had like addiction issues and that his death was formerly ruled an accident but obviously we don't know we weren't there and brazil and but i do want to say like addictions in joke about suicide. Something to joke about i. There's something i can hope. That would make this more positive. However i'm just like damn i wish we'd all known that this guy was like the sick faku was like really controlling this. This is his second attempt guys. Moving was just the one that head. He's going to projects and being like. Here's four thousand dollars. And i will fucking make your face star. And he was just being out in the pool while the album so like he's done this before but this is the one that hit so and i know that we were all so mean. And here's the thing too is like pre trump pre that raggedy bitch forty five and honestly like pre social media. Age news was news for a long time. So right now if milli vanilli came out and they couldn't saying we probably talk about that for like sixteen hours on twitter if that if the memes are slapping so yeah i'll of course internet wasn't pop in like that at the time and so everything word of mouth and everything in the news lasted so much longer. It was like dinner party conversation in conversation on the news and jokes and television shows like things lasted longer. Because it wasn't like the raggedy orange bitch in office literally had crocs line out his nose and that was news for two hours from my god. This milania turn into. The gretchen was like folk declare fox news for literally thirty minutes. Meanwhile went obama war. Tansu two weeks my lord. He looked good right. Or when i just saw this on twitter i miss this the first time around but brock brockman apparently called kamala harris. Fine win best looking more men in the city or like the best looking attorney general. Where when was this. This is a few years bag and they would've been a couple right too much too much skin in right couple but he said this and was like it was a been lit because it was completely unprompted berry berry for but he talked about the correspondence that are he joked about it so it was like you know michelle schilling. It was ever. I was laughing. But it's funny though. Because like i truly didn't even know like those things you last longer. The new cycle. And so if you're thinking about that as someone who's under duress was under stress who wasn't the mastermind behind his fucked up shape and they got dragged on television film. Roddy oh everywhere. Dragging like would weigh on you. Of course it would and again just to reiterate. It was a huge. When i tell you it was a huge fucking story when this shit happened league. Yeah it was everywhere. I mean like i remember it. I remember being you know you know seeing this and it was again like you said it's an all the shows right show talks about even to this day you can still make that evenly reference and gen z. Won't what's going on. But i'm bummed for them because if they had just stayed on stage. It wouldn't have been this controversy. Stop trying to save. Just get that out there. I need you to stop. You're such a lane sleazy manager like why didn't you just stay on stage. I honestly scam manager. I am own off. And that's what made them look guilty. There look clearly lip singing they russ off stage and of course continued to repeat over and over again which makes me think because like look okay back in the day right technology. They really eight shit. Okay this was only like thirty years ago. Relax okay but if some shit is skipping plug the bitch. I couldn't turn the song this almost sabotage milli vanilli was it. Frank frank frank like oh they got more than i ever could it and then he he along the saldivar them now is that. What's her name. Is that selena members selena. Who was the president of london. I know the fucked up your bar. She i think so. Is she in jail for this free. If you know. I honestly feel bad for the actress who played deal on the saldivar in the selena movie with jaylo because whenever i think of yolanda saldivar woman's face for lady the real to sell to heavy makeup on so she looks totally different. No she's very recognizable. And i feel super bad for her. Because i'm like anytime. I think it'd be on the saldivar. I think of that bitch goner bit. She's just an actress. She's a bitch she's still alive she's sixty years old. You'll end up Bad ho fuck you on the and donald trump both both of them so man i really feel for them so eventually it was exposed that they had never even sung six time platinum album to begin with never not not not a tune and that was the other thing is that they had they won. Grammys like it was were fucked from like can you imagine eighty cd tired of fucking whirlwinds note and you can you imagine whirlwind and repo. Grammy is john legend in trump to your house. And he's like oh grandma come with me this thing up. So i'm so sorry guys It's all for me too. I'm thinking a little bit. And i won't stop and i'm like i definitely think well edition to you did but like i feel like more necessary than my singing which was like i just feel like singing today. damn i feel so bad so they were exposed guys in november of one thousand nine hundred ninety s complete frauds. Their grammy was repoed. A they devote their grameen's snatched it right off their necks and unfortunately their careers were never able to bounce back which makes sense because they never really had careers. It's the bounce back from like something you'd never had they went. They went back into the studio where they swam in the pool but she could anymore. They weren't allowed them and pull anymore. Frank the fuck out of here. I think frank is behind this. I'm gonna put a conspiracy theory out. That frank was the person who sabotaged vanilla. I support it. I think he was hating on them. They got too big. He wasn't ready for that and he sabotaged. I believe it. I feel like frank came and it was like merely bonelli. Let's hang on their like. Flank was a normal. Hang with you. We have a group is here. We want to do was like these pitches. Fan them at the projects and dallas back to the projects for you. Oh horrible gosh all right guys. We're gonna take a small break with non scam and advertise. Ask man as and we are gonna hear that ice from your water ice and they're going to hear it and they're going to be angry about it. I'm going to have to three under the bus. Because i've made my penance for eating on the show. Are you guys really mad if you guys are sorry so scammer of the week. This this is perfect. Students for trump co-founder pleads guilty to scamming business out of forty six thousand dollars. Total a trump. Donald hit the day as donald trump So john lambert co founder of students for pleaded guilty to scamming consumers and businesses out of forty six thousand dollars by posing as a lawyer online and dispensing legal advice. We love look lying gang a scam trump supporters. All you want like. I'm i'm not against it. I'm for. I'm like sean makes them recap merch. Trump supporters right like. How can you turn leg into a trump. Supporting leg is gone full. Trump's of land trump twenty twenty trump leg. I dunno kicks so by the leg. I don't know. I just wanna make money so twenty three year. Old lambert went by eric. Pope which already i'm not. I don't trust nickname. pope. I know who else his name. Olivia don't fuck shady bitch to listen we'd love we stay. Livia pope stand account. Okay she got some dirt on her hand. I know she dish was fucking the republican president up condoleeza rice me step but eric popa. He's like watching scandal. And he's like what do i call myself. Olivia pope pope now pope. I'm so close. I can feel it. it's so he pretended to be a new york-based attorney at a law firm called pope and done that done got you though. Sounds like some learn a law done in dun done dad so the justice department basically said this. He pleaded guilty in a new york. Federal court to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Are you what attorney judge valerie. Caproni asked the tennessee native in court. The new york post reported. No your honor lambert said. He's look he's at. I'm not an attorney said that. I worked at pope done. Oh yes. my last name is pope. The pope day mostly like we were dating that we never say we were lawyers than i have esquire on my muslim yeah it means just law. Just let us my card. My business card says on a lawyer doesn't mean i really am. Please come on now. Back up your honor. So lampert founded students for trump during the two thousand sixteen presidential election. He ran the scheme from august. Twenty six to april two thousand eighteen and made several appearances on news shows. Prosecutors said it created a fake website and to have fifteen years of experience and corporate patent law. I'm just gonna go ahead and say you don't have to be an expert to be on on a new show. And i think scam got. His moseley is proof positive. Yeah guys don't turn experts on ships. 'cause i'm wondering i just yeah you should rethinking your whole life right. I was just tell you point blank as an expert on ship. X twenty twenty on abc like re tweets videos of me like talking about scales. And i'm like brow. Yeah don't trust none of that. So and i'm also very fascinated by that because i'm jago come over here and listened to you about two expert information. Look we. I told ya we'll tell you when i'm making stuff up. Share in does research are facts. They are factual. And actual. However i do add non. Goya adobo to them. I just wanted to say any time. Someone rhymes their defense factual end actual cause. If the gloves don't fit you must yeah. You should not lion if you've gotta arrive. If you've gotta hidden figures were razzle dazzle through are lying through his crimes. I in razzle-dazzle and the you lie. You don't make it rhyme. That's all that matters so they also alleged that lambert pretended to be a graduate of nyu's law school which you know another scam. I just to say john lambert. I'm not going to be mad at you for scamming trump supporters. I'm not because basically you're scamming on hate and i've thought about doing it a lot. Because here's the thing about. Hey guys it ages you. it's not moisturizing. It's very drying hate moisture. Look keeps your skin young. And you're a important fact. moisturizer neck. People moisturizer net slather that neck with cream every night. Your face can be looking good. But if you're you're nickel nickel pillow you. It's like a tree rings around eighty two rings that faces only thirty eight right okay. Deliver neck mother willow on you okay. That's a talking tree because don't get that. I got it today. Okay it's been a great day But yeah seriously like about this. Because i'm just like yes scam. Trump supporters seems fair slowly. Right here's okay. So here's my thing about the scam again. I'm with you. i don't know how to feel the only reason. I don't know how to feel is because i'm like. What is this guy scamming trump supporters. But he also was a trump supporter. Unisom saying like was he just scamming his fellow people because that is very trumpian. You know what i'm saying right. Or was he really on our side and scamming trumpers as as lefty as a radical as a progressive. Whatever you wanna call us in twenty twenty. That's the question. If he was a trump support her then fuck him but if he wasn't then i'm gonna put some money on his books because he's in jail on we don't know if he's in jail. Let's figure out if he's in jail right now to find out that john lambert chelsea's looking it up right now so while she's looking up. I will say i agree with you. On the shopping thing is like there was a lot of tweets that people are posting like direct screenshots trump's campaign during these final days of election. Vote counting where he's like threatening his supporters. He's like within winning team. How he's like if you're a real trump supporters and you'll be supporting those right now and this is your final notice to support us like everyone else has. He's threatening his constituency. Which i find hull areas. And i also do want to say this. 'cause i got this information from people who count votes in the elections and have been doing so for a few years that we always count all the votes and this is. I didn't really readily understand. But we always count all the votes however when the margin is so large and the remainder of votes is so few that we know it won't change the election. We can call states in advance and know that. There's not really going to be a change in that. But when it's like close like this which was so devastatingly disappointing. That people are just so fucking horny for racism like guys. I mean end xenophobia and and and homophobia transphobia and which is so interesting to me. That stuff doesn't make your life any better if you're just getting rock-hard on other people's suffering it's not really improving your life at all and get it for uneducated whites who are like look. I'm not gonna go finish high school. But what i will have is this alabaster associate's degree which means that our aaa that when i step into a building i am automatically seen better than any other black person who works there no matter their status and i know that they're voting for that. That's what they thought they were. Both superiority complexes will take you to the fucking finish ten times over. You know what i'm saying. Superiority conflict co complexes. Like the strength of that. I mean keep it re- understand the people are trump supporters. Today are just the descendants of the poor white people who refuse to align themselves with enslaved when back and you look. It's crazy when you think about like this and lineage has gone on for generations of like cut off my nose to spite my face like as long as i can be better than some somebody. They can look down on somebody. I don't care. If i'm getting what i need and what i want in life which is out because why not just have it. What fucking like. We're it's crazy to me that y'all are fighting like for example. We want universal healthcare. That's going to help. Everybody has a robotic. And here's the thing. Here's a scam about universal healthcare. Which i don't know if everybody knows this please share the word. Share the good word when anybody goes to the hospital. They are not turned away. So whether we provide health care for people or not you pay for it. You've always paid for it and if i never been different thing about if you get an ambulance and somebody's like okay. Let me see that blue cross before we hit clear. Why oh you code. They're not going to be like wait a minute. Did we see their insurance. No they're going to give you the medical treatment and who pays for it the society taxing and to pants and i'd love to piggyback on what you're saying because not only do we pay for it but we pay a fucking exorbitant amount for it. Why because we don't have the public option. We don't have universal healthcare. A box of tissues does not cost four hundred dollars. A fucking fucking ambulance ride is not three hundred dollars. That is because we are still fucking with this private bullshit ask system and it's like yo shit will be. Can you imagine a world where you can go to the doctor. And you're fucking co pay no matter who the fuck you rs five dollars. Can you imagine a world that you can take the fucking ambulance to the club because it's so cheap. Outlook was taking too long. So we call nine one one. We took an ambulance to live. Okay miami you know like just imagine a world where you can have surgery and your bill. You have a baby and you're having a babies fifty bucks instead of eight thousand or more or meals like regular baby. That's not even beyond say baby. Ain't grand for your regular regular regular project baby from germany thousand dollars even cover half of his birth guys. We just we don't have to do this. And i hope i know a lot of you guys out. There probably have family members who are trump supporters. I know you do 'cause. I looked at the demos of the show. I'm not going to say what they are. But i know you do. I know you do. I'm looking at you. Can you feel my eyes on you through the radio through your phone your airpods. She's talking to you. I'm talking to you and look. Everyone is self motivated. Everything we do is self motivated. There's no such thing as a true out truly altruistic deed and. I've talked about that before. Just because i don't want to do something kind because you get something from it whether it's feeling good about yourself for doing something good or you do something bad and you feel good about yourself. You know what i mean. There's always something that we could. So maybe try to point your raggedy ass relatives this thanksgiving as you guys eat with. I'm almost certainly sure we'll be dry turkey if you're a trump supporter every now and then you get a trump supporter who can barbecue. Okay listen politics you know. She voted for trump and that mac and cheese. I never have. I have no friends from the south. People have a very complicated relationship with racist. So it's like okay. Everybody down there be pretty much racist. But then it'd be your homeboy. You'd be like yeah. Billy ted is. He's fucked up but he's also the best barbecuer in town. What i wish i could. I wish i could say that was just. It's not. it's the whole country because in jersey was like i had my friends was like. Oh yeah. But i can't go inside their house laughing but it's very sad. Sad stoop mama would never never let me inside. They said if they use a brush. Don't bring them to us you. Maybe incentivize them with how much better their lives could be if they just voted for the betterment and improvement of their own individual lives versus the joy of watching other people in the country suffered because like joy. Hit like that. Like when it's about hey like hey scam. Hey not that lit. It really isn't and ultimately the bully phenomenon right like right once you learn about believe in school and you think that they're just ultimately. The bully is suffering at his. Why they're inflicting suffering on other people because they are trying to you know they want other people. Misery loves company and they want other people to be miserable with them. And it's like louis. I can't i can't believe that these are the two sides of the debate. It's like on the one end. It's like either everybody's miserable and dying and sucks or like on the other side like everybody's happy and like we like we all get healthcare free education and universal basic income. And like it's like there's no debate. There's no competition there and if any we're not talking just blue states fucked the resumes. Yarmuth fuckers wanna do to us. When i was on fire we remember like fuck them blue states on fire honestly if we all have just volunteer like two days a week during fire season to go put out fires california could just move out this bitch. We we give so much money to federal taxes. Like why don't we just float off and be our own country. I'll do my two days largest economy in the whole entire worrell two days a week. Fire season the put out some fires. I won't actually work though l. No i'll be lining my joint on that shit. But i'll be out there. Like matrix is beautiful. But like ma'am. We need to point the hose at the fire. Then how do i stay. Cool i'd write. I have it on me. My god nature so gorgeous guys like put out the fire. He mentioned bad. That instagram shot would be of you in front of the fire. Such a bad ass talk about lighting talk about atmosphere. The smoke my bathing suit. My hose inspire is the best lighting. I've put on a fire hat just like making even cuter like vibes. Talk okay. this is why we should have seen. That brings us to the end of this epic over any Before we go we did get some information on this lambert character and unfortunately he is a trump supporter he actually did have involvement in a student organization that was supporting trump. He just decided to lie and say that he was a lawyer and scam forty six thousand dollars from people. So i'm disappointed in you. Don now matt you honestly. I think if you hadn't been a trump supporter you probably would need more money to sand lake. If you've been scamming this from a better place in your heart because when you scam and hassle come from the altruistic part of your heart. Listen you're scamming degenerates. It has to like. Yeah and look i get it like nobody wants to be called a degenerate for voting for donald one And honestly i'd say if you voted for trump the first time around and you're like oh a republican okay. He's kind of fucked up but you know a lot of republicans are mcgrath's let's be honest. Let's rock with that. But after four years of his raggedy bitch a whole pandemic and he's a. Ucla voted for him. Not only in but you were like. Let's vote in higher percentages. Okay wait women before. I go from fifty three percent of fifty five. How dare you what happened. We went on amazon. And you did. This and the karen wigs were sold out. I think the cairns assembled they said you're gonna call us cairns old then we're gonna show you what a karen relate a simple like fucking power rangers. But they were like it's more time. And they all put on this spiky wigs with the banks swoop to the right and they voted against some of their self interests.

Fill in the bath game other than being scammed with me together seven days ago. Let's see have i been. Oh yeah you know what you know. I went camping this weekend right. Yes it looks cute. Yeah it looks you but a bitch got scammed by the weather honey. It was one hundred thirteen. Goddamn degrees and yes. Like eight degrees. It was too many many. I was like i stop at two digits and and you know it was wild we get there and like literally almost died as we were setting up our camp because we should not have been doing at all like we had to take ships like sitting the car with ac and like going out in like opening one tent and then going back. It was so bad but outside of that like we had a when when we were able to cool down and get up in the water and stuff and do our little rafting trip we had. It was a fantastic time. But i'm not gonna lie. That weather scam the fuck outta me. I really thought i was going to be there like enjoying nature and just letting breeze hit me and all my body parts. But how'd you get to cool down if the sun has said no like you got to cool. We were walking distance from the river. So like i mean this was real negro shit okay like we won't river river go to the river. No no more doors like well. I mean you would be. Yeah that's also how. I got scammed because originally the trip was supposed to be was was pitched as a glam trip and then like after everybody agreed it was like oh just kidding. That site is occupied. So we're just gonna do regular old camping and you know i was down for. I hadn't i just. I didn't make didn't think it was going to be that hot. And i figured we're going to be by a river. We're going to be in like a wooded area baby. Our shit was just out in the sun. And that's it like it was so bad but we went down to the river to cool off once that happened. We just walked around soaking way and it was good and then the sun went down and it was still fucking hot but we made it work this so i'm not to go there. We were in kern. Tounsi sequoia national park the kern river which is like a really well known little like this acute moment. Y'all do go mid july so it's like why wasn't i thinking you know it's like i just. This is my first time camping. So i wouldn't have. You know i deferred to who. I saw experts. Who then as we were on the trip or like. Oh all know. We're not experts right scam. I'm sorry don't take me out. It's nobody's woods. If you're goddamn bear grylls okay. Jose me out into these woods. If you we we all learn together you all youtube figuring out how to put the tent up no no no now okay out. And by the way like oh. I also got scammed by my tent. That i bought on amazon. Because it's currently in my trunk. Still not quite folded properly because we all just gave up and we're like it's too hot. We're going to die and we have to get home. That's not amazon's fall. I mean you know. I don't ever want to defend q. Basis but. I don't know anything to do with that. That's true that's fair. I see jeff bezos here. I just want to play pool. I just want to punch the shit out of it but like from the back here. That like back clap sound. i'm at bald as head. Oh again god so guys. Let's go first segment. What's hot and fraud. That's where we warned our listeners. About popping scams that are in the zeitgeist or more often than not. We get a letter from you where you can snitch on your friends and family and even yourself just making your scams retired because we don't wanna what fuck up you. Bag amen amen. Today's leonard i need a name. Priscilla gender doesn't matter let's call them odysseus odysseus. Wow okay we're going back to the odyssey okay. I whether we're out down so odysseus says. I thought you should know about this scam. If you don't already they almost just got me on black when you say things like. They almost just got me. Oh they almost just got me you know when people running it and then they start ready to the anyway we also down like almost got us people who was they. Why are we ready. Who were they and how do they almost gets. I don't care. I just know i'm safe. I know that they almost did though almost wasn't safe. Almost just got me all right. This is in the past week. I've done a ton of online shopping. So the below text message was totally believable. Even though ups always leaves my packages at the door. So it's It's a text message that says from and it's it's like seven nine zero zero dash. Usps are ups rather than it says. Message three four three they put a bunch of extra shifts and make it look like it was automated. It's as we tried to deliver your parcels today parcel. That's a good word right right on board now but you weren't in or there was no safe place to leave it. How okay now. How does that ring you weren't in slash or there or there. It's just in space but you weren't in or there was no safe place to leave it so you weren't in or there was no safe place to leave it that those sound. That don't sound accurate. Sound acharya ed purcell. I know every league dead. I'm so mad that they like. I already had so many emotional roller coasters. I was on board with parcel and talking crazy within or and about and maybe come on now like it would just be like the delivery. I think they say it was not deliverable or like the currier could not contact sollozzo. Something very simple and be like your home and even if you were home. They're not like discounting to be like you weren't there or you. We couldn't find you like what they're not giving you all that extra work there like one here so we left right also says there was no safe place to leave he is like a lotta you start explaining and i mean how many times hong kong veterans have. We brought this up when people start over explaining. You got to know that they talking nonsense. It's like it's like when they're they're overly courteous in this like we thought maybe you might have in the shower or we heard the stove was on and we actually going to tell you where you know. You don't wanna ghastly but We didn't pay because the stove was explode. Pse and gbi act in. anyway. What i was saying. Ups s wherever come from right is doing too much is giving ally asked to be gave. You know god. I was choked so so this year says i clicked on the link and led me to a site that was so believable in all caps even season scam detector. The link protect dash ups dot com legit and they fully designed a ups site. I later realized none of the links worked it was just a pdf. I clicked schedule new delivery and it took me to a page where i was supposed to enter. My credit card info saying future delivery attempts would cost two dollars and fifty cents to me. So i went back to the previous page and saw that my package was being held at unit. Nine rose mark business park. Google says that's in dublin ireland. I'm in saint. Louis missouri ha. That's when i knew for sure. I you should have no your credit card info and it was going to take two dollars and fifty cents. Because that's not a thing a thing and you show you. Ps package or ups bag. Go down there a fight with the man at the calendar period period and honestly. That's that's after they've done at least two or three tenths to deliver it. Like i'm going to check like redick liver when i get that little sticking on my door. You know because if they do if they do the thing the first time i know. They're not about that life and they probably best sticker up there lift. Didn't even do no attempt so all. I've done that where i will be like. Yes we deliver. And they re deliver. And i've gotten it but there are times where yeah i have had to go and the people of the desk. Yeah no. I'm all about like if i see a sign i'm just going to drive there and get it myself because sometimes you wear home and i'm like i was sitting at home all day. Yada knock. oh call you know ken. Nobody run you know. We retired from the olympics. You start working. Ups or fedex. Because you we love you have the speed of light on your hands. We'll say we'll deliver packages when he retired. I don't think they expect you to run the packages there. They do because they've never opened the door and saw a man or ups man. No i've just seen smoke literally and gone. And that's if i get a ding dong like what you said like like that always kills me. It's like if you deliver something. Just knock knock. I feel like even we do get a knock. It's not a real knock. I feel like dropping a package and they don't wanna rock and roll door. They speed away pebble. It's a peduel and if the for me either they don't or they knocked like the police. And i'm scared shitless. Please the police on my door. That's that's a very stressful. For black people. i will say the. Ups man track down was when this neighborhood of people during the pandemic were like we want to thank our local ups guy. 'cause he's been working his ass out bringing these damn packages over here so they had to wait outside for a long time with a gift. Just wait bush. jerry. Go throw the presence adam presence. That have been run. You'll know. what do you knows how to handle packages. Oh lord. I will say this fake you. Ups keep saying wanting to say usps site looks pretty legit. Oh damn that does look fucking legit way. Like that's what i was saying. I was like okay. I get it. That was all these failed delivery attempts. I'm like legit to me. Like how many times have they tried to deliver this to you. They were like we tried. Ninety six times and at ninety seven is when we we cut it off. That's when we send it back. That's when we start charging to two dollars every time this is anyway. Protect yourself and others from the scam. It's scary that they have my cell number in text out of the blue own levy lacy. Thank ya this is. I will say that like we talked about this. Many times and i'll i'm not afraid to reiterate it. Don't click on links that since you by people you know and even if you do know them cinema taxpayers and be like. What is this link. And dave respond and say what it is because i've had situations where people did. Text me only respond to them like did you think. And they're like oh yeah did versus like sometimes people can have their formation stolen lakes on a bad link. You know when you get emails like a lot of people fake email addresses to act like they're legitimate businesses like this ups site. It's fucking you know Pdf so it's like these people do this all the time. Just click on links. All willy nilly. Yeah like an honestly. The clicking of the link can set you up for some more bullshit because maybe you got that cause your home clicked on the link. It's just so. Yeah you always i always. I'm very cautious. Like whenever i get these like things from any company that i were amazon netflix. Your netflix account has been done. You gotta you know. Once i see. There's a league and like i'm like no rather than that it's like gold to the actual in this case. Ups site if you were looking waiting on a package go to the actual ups site and check and you'll see the information. If this is a legit email the information will be on the legit ups site. Yeah and also. There was no tracking number in the text message. It was just a link to the site and then a bunch of like message. Msg free seven. Oh nine to nine you know. Automated this robot. That's where we say. I i am a robot. Full human being type decides time. I can't recognize the traffic lights. 'cause i am a robot so anyways girl click on this link again which one of these are palm trees anyway. Sh- honestly i know so silly but like proving i'm not a robot is one of the small joys of my life. This is because what do i have to prove. I'm not a robot to aerobics. You'll by clicking on the pictures. I can do no puzzle. I don't know it feels. I don't know i enjoy my yes. I'm not a robot. Yes you accomplish. Something like i do. And it's worse. When i accidentally like i hate those like borderline pictures where it's like i don't know is the handlebar of the bike. In this one square is that does that constitute a full bike. It's to me. It's a lot. And i love it right there. Like count the cars. I'm like that's a big wheel do. Is that a car because y'all say. Rei say truck say automobile was. That's why i like it. Because i i feel like i'm being gasoline like your robot and you. Tell me to prove humid like what is this. It's our future. That's what proving our human is the robot events our future and this work like that like that l. said well with me. Okay because we're going to take a break for some non robot advertisements.

If we're not doing that you're not really here for me and that hurts the inside. So historically wings. I three years blade. Air mobility inc aviation startup. Best known as the uber of helicopters was represented by seven maclaurin as their spokesperson and director of communications. He sent out. Press releases spoke to news outlets even wrote personal blogs however this june it was discovered after his departure from the company that simon maclaurin never actually existed. What the fuck wait. There's company which is like the uber of helicopters. Each wished feel good like oops already sells sesa. Sketch helicopters are so dangerous. I because like this hoover helicopter hoover helicopters like any. Oh motherfucker at the helicopter can just pick you up. You know like it needed the helicopter late day like okay. You'll helicopter circling the block. A helicopter actually got delayed on last ride like west. The situation here yeah. I'm already concerned but so this guy was the ceo. You said he was the head dog so he was representing the com- the company as a spokesperson expert of communications sending out emails press releases. Spe- considered news outlets. He had a personal blogs talking about uber helicopter. Air when he's speaking to the news outlets that's all what in written form like. He's not on hat to be had to be. You can do a lot of phone calls that end up being turned into literal articles. And then you send pictures to go along with them so it could be that situation. But it's like simon was out here doing these dan prescott. We'll see an uber. Car in the water is bizarre but our helicopters really do being the water sometime like we just hold on be patient. The helicopter will up okay. The helicopter wave for five minutes before they charge just five minutes. And you know it takes eighteen minutes to ground this bitch. But we're only waiting for five because liftoff takes eight seconds bitch so about blade blade. Urban air mobility inc is an urban air mobility platform based in new york city. Well that makes sense. Because like i can fly helicopters in l. a. and people do it to get places faster. I feel like helipads and stuff like that is very new york very much. So but ellie ellie doing that because we have ghetto ghetto birds in the sky. All the time out here and yeah. We could wind up one. Police have so many helicopters successive phillies. Y'all just want him for no reason. It's be on excessive when they talk about the militarization of police. This is what we're fucking talking about like. Why do our police have all these goddamn helicopters. Like and i feel like they. They're looking for people half the time. They just be flying them so that people know that they gave us based put some miles on this helicopter. Let's go to the hoodie flashlights. That black people okay. They wanna make sure they get their that money back in their budget. Their budget exactly no use it. We lose it. So y'all get into helicopter like literally just to get somebody selling bootleg persons on venice. Okay helicopter exactly the type of shit. They use helicopters for yes. It's also for like murderers on the loose. Okay but it's also for other bullshit around here. Lapd we're watching. You look down my cell fake kylie lip kids. Let's get pissed kylie has like a fucking contract with lapd. Get them everywhere. You find them in the helicopter right now before i have kris jenner callback. Okay so much like other rideshare apps it's allows users to book seats on scheduled flights throughout the northeast and west coast of the united states. It also allows us to arrange private charter. Flights lost twenty fourteen. It went public. This may add evaluation of more than eight hundred million dollars. They previously partnered with uber provides flights between la and the coachella festival. Crowdsource flights for the hamptons. Ooh parents visiting their children on summer. Camps in new england and even offered across town shuttle for new yorkers wanting to escape traffic when the pope visited in two thousand fifteen. We could use that when obama used to come to town here because we will come to town boy. We jammed in america. Everybody will be so upset. You go to the store and they like did you hear obama's. Oh god right when that. We're never going to get home now. That's it we have to live here now. We have to live at seven eleven big wrecks. We love you obama whenever you come to tell you do because a lot of traffic you know a lot although these days they might be more incognito or low keno simon ignoring the fake director of communications for the past two years maclaurin served as a director of communications for blade of until his departure in january he had spoken to various media outlets sent out press releases and more or less function as the voice of the company simon had been quoted by the new york times the new york post. Oh times the. I usually fat check better than this We know you don't say yao's amiss yell at terrible curbed. The washington post fox business. We don't expect them to tell the truth. Cnn and insider he even had a small internet presence including a blade email address a twitter account created in november a medium profile which is a long form publishing platform that blends amateur and professional blogging professional. I e anybody can have a beam article. Yeah exactly and that's kind of cool because it kind of it i. It opens up journalism. Exactly you don't have a platform so if you get a good pop in medium article with some traction doesn't necessarily mean that you are a journalist which is not so if you have a story to tell us really did you have a platform you can get it out on But also medium articles a lot of shit because anybody can write them so the blog was intended to be unique perspective on what. It's like to be a diehard new yorker this teenage but ended up being a bizarrely opinionated series of personal music's a direct us directly copied expert reads. I am old enough to remember when presidents day was called washington's birthday con cherry jin z. Belief the holidays named wasn't changed to avoid celebrating the birthday of our first president due to his complex legacy of having three hundred slaves working on his plantation at the time of his death. The holidays name change occurred so his birthday in president. Lincoln's birthday february twelfth could be celebrated as one without creating additional federal holidays. Unfortunately now the lincoln teeters on the brink of cancellation given his treatment of native americans during his term. It a lot. I wanted to get a helicopter downtown. That's all i wanted sir. Trying to fly over obama traffic. I asked you about it. You mean a. I love how you brush this off like all year because people was kinda mad that he had three hundred slaves. Oh like mental seem like something. That's not problematic morally bankrupt. He came out black. People had a worrying for free in the hot sun. Okay but he was a great president. He stole their teeth for his own. Teeth yes. his teeth weren't winning. They were from his enslaved captives. yes but he's a little. He's a nice guy guys come on. He was our first president. Chill out wow so look at and we have another blog post in front of us curious content. Okay so one. The thing that's disturbing me is like this is definitely what like twenty fifteen and i'm looking at a helicopter that looks like it's from nineteen sixteen and like the woman and the man then night fifties sixties kinda get ups and suits. Because you know. The girls used to wear a suit on the plane. They give the girls fashion on the planes very mad. Men is very mad. May which also tells me like. This man is a racist. I mean we already knew like when he was defeated george washington. He had three hundred. Slaves was still call washington birthday. Turn up for america like wait. What so now. We're looking at this very much. The good old days. Ask photo nose day not to mention. It's like one two three four five men in this photo and one woman who clearly is probably the one that's doing all the labor. Yeah she's holding a piece of paper and it doesn't look like she's getting on the helicopter. It looks like they're like oh jimmy buddy. Wrap up with their secretary slash lover and this shopper. Like this is muzar. So let's see it says this blog post due to circumstances partially in parentheses beyond our control the start of the twenty twenty one has been delayed so the okay so again one thousand nine hundred helicopter photo. He's often about twenty twenty. One has been delayed. Says the sixties really didn't end until nixon resigned in nineteen seventy-two what is with him and presidents when this seems like the soiling of an institution now feels like a graceful exit nixon's exit was not graceful. They got caught do a crime crime they deep throat him about this guy okay. This revisionist history okay. I'll nixon d. A lot of crimes office who the didn't really end until the challenger space shuttle trag- tragedy in nineteen eighty two. That's not how a year's work the seventies ended in seventy nine. Tell about i mean. I i guess what he's trying. I listen. I'm going to see where he's going with this. But i think what what he may be trying to say like you know how like like one decade bleeds into the beginning of another decade gas. Well let's see where he goes. Twenty twenty one for sure. Yeah okay says the eighties. Didn't end until bill clinton became president in nineteen ninety-three. What is that mean. The nineties didn't end until well into march two thousand when the stock market crash exposed. What was under the hood of web one point. Oh internet bubble. It happened to pets.com soft and half into dot com sock puppet. What about praising her. Simon what is going on and so this past week at the capitol. While i can't be certain so he's talking about the shit that went down to the capital. I'm pretty sure this is what rock bottom looks like. So i refuse except that twenty. Twenty one has actually begun at the very same time. Yorkers are quietly heading down to florida in droves to get vaccinated. Evidently all it takes is to be a member of a palm beach country. This i can't stand rambling ass shit. What is the point. I don't i mean again. I just eat a helicopter. Gas me to my son's bar mitzvah. Okay point eight point be nobody asked about how the years work for you or the decades or what are you rebelling about. That was all one post. Y'all are you confused as we are reading that. That was confusing. I'm sorry that. I don't know what simon is on. Let's figure it out. 'cause this is how he got caught in june business insider attempted to reach. I'm using a phone number published. His previously used to reach him. However this time chief of staff legal answered the phone. He said that he scheduled for simon. What which is why. He answered the phone. He had met simon in person. And that those. Simon is no longer with the company. He still occasionally freelanced as a spokesperson. I ain't never worked in a company where they were like. Okay you have to leave but you get representing us public league. What i'm still wh. What is happening. I just got slipped into the twilight zone. I'm so confused here. So if you guys are confused. Fyi business insider called chief of staff lee gold. And they say this was simon's number. Where simon as we would like to chit chat with him. Okay these weird ass blog posts in why we can't get a helicopter but we have to learn about nine hundred ninety three. We have questions and we'll simon has answers but we would like to attempt to get answers from him so then ligo picks up the phone and it's like oh okay so he don't work. You're not more bus. Sometimes he will freelance and be a spokesperson for. My name. Is leigh and i'm the chief of staff. Hello okay so is lee. Simon feeling like that's what is giving. We'll see because he's just you know i obviously personnel. At the time. I mean simon just had coffee. Actually he walked up. Go right ahead. You stop oh no here hear me anyway. Simon we're different people right. Yeah okay you heard it right now. Okay i never be all right you you earn it so. Gold continue to give insider odd answers ignore follow questions for interviews and blocked reporters number soon after receiving a variety of conflicting information company. Ceo robert weisenthal reached out to finally knowledge the persona of simon maclaurin. And tell them that. It was fake so fucking pictured. Make sure i already knew. Of course. it's a scam. I love his gangsta. Only mo- and that is this. This is rob weisenthal right. And he's giving me my face. It's like woo posted. Won't post the episode. But it's giving very much like black auntie. Lions live like somebody brought new girlfriend and she some shorts that are way too short to be over union literally and i'm also loving like the lionel ritchie like lean. You know for from all his like his Album covers the lounge. Lean right he is giving us a lounge lane and it's also giving like this liger go do one more thing before jala perry speech like on this on this like. He's very much about go. Full on the an. I love this so the claims it was a common practice for small companies to use fake personas with the press as everyone has to wear many hats. So is that a common practice because it feels like then you have a fall guy if you fuck up. That's what is giving. I mean i can listen. Sign them weird. Blondes and they were like salmon is dead. Actually he died in a fiery fiery plane. Wasn't a helicopter crashed. Wasn't playing like the plane was on the ground and just blow it up there. I mean i can see like if you're a small company and like you know you wanna make it seem like you actually have like a structure or a you know a team in place like yeah i can see people playing multiple roles and ultimately all this is just a matter of like how you sign your email right like. That's really what it boils down to. So i can see that. It's like having a fake assistant exactly exactly so. Why isn't the solution to having a small team. Not trained in speaking to the press was to create a proxy mouthpiece i-it's i'm mclaren the through which he could not only represent the company but published personal opinions under simon's blonde. So these are weisenthal opinions. These weirdo of news. See this is where weisenthal fucked up. You should've just stuck to goddamn business. Okay no one told you that no one cared about your opinions you you created a whole fucking pen name. Okay acting like you're goddamn author. Judy blume and shit. You know what. I mean under a pen name like you should have just used it for business. Which was what the purpose was to be a spokesperson for the company. You got messy when you started getting all weird cunanan fucking political up in this bitch right. Well why isn't it. Became a secondary project. Keep marketing and creative teams busy during the dark days of cova so own marketing team come up with that. Nineteen fifties helicopter photo. Or i think you're a fucking liar talking about which which kind of speaks to light the rambling energy of his blogs. This thing just saying anything. He's just says anything that comes out of his mouth and keep the straight base talking. Isn't it you just want to hear your voice. Don't you motherfucker right. This is one of those people that you can have a conversation with them for hours walkaway knowing nothing about no idea what you were talking about. Yes those people were like. They'll say things and you're just i hear the words i get how they get put together but they're just not come. The output is just not the input. I get the output. I'm not. I used to know a guy like this. I won't say his name. But i dated him. He was beautiful but he was insane. And i would have conversations with him and he'd be talking about businesses starting or other shades. And i realize like the whole time he was like real fine. I'll just And i will leave. I'll be like what did we talk about. Yeah just fucking confuse you. And i have a mutual friend. I won't say their name on air. I'll tell you after that that's like this like every time i talked to this person. I'm just like what. what are they saying. Don't understand. And i'm fucking pretty smart bitch like hey us. All my context clues trying. I'm getting on my chart. You remember when he was in a writing class fifth sixth grade and they give you the chart like would it make character. The the beginning middle and end and apply wasn't doing a diagram trying to make sense of it right. Yeah so the persona of simon maclaurin was apparently entertaining enough exercise to be worth one last bout of drama before his departure as blade announced its merger with a special purpose acquisition company in january. It realized there might be more at stake than it's faceless. Spokesperson would be able to handle. Blade staged a dramatic announcement shortly after stating that simon would be leaving the company and taking his newsletter on with him in part because he no longer could abide by blade editing his views. Oh my god this has nothing to do with helicopters simon. I don't even mean so mad. This even thing if feels like maybe this fake simon character which is weisenthal was getting more traction using the name blade on his random blockposts and maybe he got high on people just read his random shit and they weren't going to read it if he wasn't attached to this company right but also like. Why am i reading a blog from this company like like. I was giving cookbook. You know cookbooks recipes on a chef. Relax so this morning. I woke up and a bird chirping rap. Put out a little honey. Rose shut down to the witches. We don't tell me how to make this meatloaf and then when the hummingbird sat on my finger was realized. The world is all one me and my boyfriend recently split. How much tomato sauce literally. yeah. I just i mean. Maybe he was doing that. We play maybe he was like so. Yeah that helicopters in Now first let's talk about the president's job. No present is day. I'm like where's the helicopter. That order i just i feel like i bet you like companies like uber and lift it. They probably do have blogs. But it's who's actually reading these blogs. We've probably shouldn't be reading all right so they are very sneaky. Remember prompts wanting to strict every roddy. Insulin what did they trick. Everybody or willingly. Just walk into the meat grinder. No tricks people because when they were trying to get a guy bosh on it they had it in the app. And i believe this is it. No one twenty two that they wanted her. Yes on twenty two. I can't remember. I feel like i was yes on twenty two call and so prop twenty two. If you guys don't know was a prompt that was introduced to protect the gig economy. The people who drive for uber lift the when are treated like independent contractors. they're not afforded any health care. Not afforded any protection against you know liabilities on their job people injuring them. People assaulting them people harming their cars or their things And so basically what this would require. Is that uber was allowed to shell out some cash and actually take care of their employees so yes on twenty two because they wanted people to be defined as independent contractors so that they could wave a ton of liability. And if you don't know anything about uber honey is that they hate liability liability. Make me sick. our that's over. They don't they don't know liabilities. I mean even if you use the app you should know that they have protections to where if something happens to you in the uber. You're assaulted if anything happens. You have to go through private arbitration outwardly. Suber that's why you don't ever hear about uber's lawsuits because you have to go through private arbitration and they just pay people off and that's the reason why if you get an email this email. Brazil that uber randomly sent out the other day time. If your driver is no call nine one one girl your if your driver's drunk take the wheel. Will either you. Jesus because uber is not liable. Okay wow it's so but so incredibly fucked up. How like this whole new kind of like economy. That's cropped up since the internet like things like door dash and things like uber and the gig economy. It's just so fucked up how these companies can get away with so much bullshit because the laws in washington being made by literal dinosaurs have not caught up to the technology that these motherfuckers are using to use abusers and those dinosaurs are getting kickbacks from these. They're getting kicked base. So they're getting there is obviously. I feel like if you're a politician and you get to a certain amount of income. You should automatically not be able to do politics anymore because when you start having rich people mentalities you're not thinking the way that we need you to think in this country you know who made fun of for being a waitress and it's like brought. We need more waitresses enough in cognitively. Know how much more they know. How much toilet paper house. Bill calls on these oil tycoon. Fungus involved in government whatsoever. Please leave. I wish there was just like a bank account number that when you get to this point. The government's like ding ding ding. You actually have to leave. You gotta get the fuck out you son of a bitch. We ain't you now you can be in politics. If they're not the only fucking people in politics we do want a swath that represents the population and it does not represent the population all. Y'all got too much money. All y'all got way too much money to representing your home states. How you how you represent mississippi you a millionaire that don't make sense okay. Right and point about the persuasion thing was is that we open the uber app. At the time of voting. If you open uber east if you open uber it'll be like hey hetero uber we'd going issue a ride or whatever but also like vote. Yes on twenty two. Because if you don lubango shut down we will have no coins and remember to pick you up. Do you want that. You want to have to start drinking and driving again because we know you will. So yeah that's a fucking fat. Do you want a dui or do you want to on twenty two like it was manipulative. People do this kind of shape. So i i'm blade blade so so blade was like okay. Simon is leaving and this is a personal statement from signing in quotes. Because he's leaving. He's leaving and okay so simon says i'm at the point in my life where i have little interest in blade or its partners bleaching my pros in an effort to avoid any readers potentially being triggered by my views bro easiest talking about the company. I think so angry with you sometime in. Are you fucking kidding me simon. We are helicopter company. This is not helping impose. This is not cnn. I don't i. i thought he was like rupert. What's her name. The scammer who'd be stealing oughta poems rupiah rupa rupa car. You've definitely seen her clothes because she everybody has quotes instagram. It's like little poems. That'd be like see with your. I eat the meat of life. Some random sue but it'd be sounded acute. That's still in poems as she season in the muppet stuff. She's got a little bit of a reputation but it's getting that's what he wanted to do. And it's we're helicopter company bro. What do you mean bleaching pros. You shouldn't be writing prose about a fucking helicopter company. All people want stats like his company. Doing where we in the rare we in the black. Gimme a chart and we're gonna invest how to stocks. I don't wanna know pros. I just. I mean this guy thought. He was going to start his literary career as a secret spokesperson for a helicopter company. I mean you're doing. You're doing too much. And the fact that he's leaving with indignation on top of it like fuck. Y'all fuck y'all disrespecting what the fuck. I was trying to do here. Assignment is not real. Simon that's not your name. Your weisenthal has done a whole days of our lives. Exit like simon's and a coma. Maybe he'll come back to life. We don't know like what's so. I'm still trying to understand what's going on. But all right so in a very despite this being a very public statement. Weisenthal says the drama surrounding. Simon separation was an inside joke amongst the creative team. Yes a you have inside jokes with like like public statements especially when you're doing a merger it just feels like not a good time to have inside jones. It's like those improv teams that they to perform and they're all laughing themselves but the audience is like what's going on here like you guys are just doing inside jokes. Nobody gets it. Hello hello we're here to we would or no okay. So he has not offered any additional explanation to why conflict was manufactured between simon and the company nor any explanation for the musings made in the newsletters. I don't understand the film. I mean right now. From what was her. Show where you know what the mean. We're like all the math comes up in the white ladies like oh. I don't think. I think that shows a french show. I don't think it's a real american show but yeah naci spiral. I'm so confused. I'm sitting here looking. Like i like a chalkboard into just like try to put all this registering a lot of photos fedral. I'm really just trying to put this puzzle together. I'm confused. why would you do this. I don't know who what. Why would you do as i maybe just wanted attention and then people were like okay. Everybody actually hates simon. He's a weirdo. And rob was like. Oh yeah yeah he sucks. Yeah fuck ham ham inside joke. No i think the company was like kill off this weird character that is bringing about liability to our company with. Y'all let him go for a while before you don't i mean like i. If if they sure started normally he was probably like. I'm going to create a fake alias to do our social media and reach out to people and then when the alias started getting traction because the company started getting traction. I feel like that's when he was like that's he cracked his his rely. Let's get to a baby. What are philosophies of the last forty years people want more signing people are okay. I'm gonna given what they won't know people want rides. They want rights. I literally still at the airport waiting for my my fucking helicopter shot. It's not coming. do you want to read. This weird is blonde purse. I gave thing. I guess i might as well. You will learn absolutely nothing afterwards but if you want to read this weird as blonde post please leave. I guess simon's waiting for you guys with that on a very confusing. I feel like simon scammed us that whole historic hoodwink. I feel like when i was reading simon's blog. What happened why. I have so many questions did lacy priscilla even say anything in the past thirty minutes. We said nothing. Nothing the loudest circles london roundabouts. Come on slut through some would call it a panhandles. you know he whips a few slides you know couple u-turns and some came turns right to the right to the right now dip dip now walking by yourself. Okay yeah yeah. We didn't do much talking about anything of substance. That's not our fault okay. That's silence all and also rob so all right guys.

I have so many questions but scammer of the week guys. Let's just our questions are going gonna get answered. We're lay awake at night. Thinking about simon and why he was working at a helicopter company and also he's not real so scare the week former scammer of the week. Guys you guys know. This is where we highlight honorary charlatan worthy of our price or not. And we don't know yet. Okay so let's see. And i had to say that because i started reading in other words in ra and woy former in our president. David keene was scanned into delivering a graduation speech to a stadium of empty chairs. Ooh i like it. Ooh keen was led to believe that he was addressing the graduating class of james madison academy a school that does not actually exist. In a video recording of the speech keep begins my urging students to uphold the second amendment before he is interrupted by audio of terrifying voices of suits trapped in a school during a shooting. Damn so this was like this was like a political action. Done and this isn't edited video. None of the speech. So we're going to see a little bit of this video. okay. Wow wow. That's very deep. This is a scam. That i highly approve of. It is emotional for sure This man is trying to defend the second amendment rights in front of a bunch of empty chairs which represent empty chairs for students who were killed by gun violence and they're playing nine one one real nine one one phone calls of people who are involved in school shootings calling for help while this old dinosaur stands up here trying to get you to buy more guns. Because he likes money. The speech was not actually a rehearsal. Keen was also led to believe and the three thousand and forty four empty chairs. He was addressing represented the children and teenagers that were shot and killed before they graduate high schools. Ooh the event was orchestrated by gun. Safety organization changed the ref founded by the parents of a teenager who was murdered in parkland florida shooting while change the rough spokesperson said in a press release ironically had been conducted a proper background check on the school. They would have seen that. This is fake. And i love that. Ironically because we know that the nra as opposed to background checks and things like that for people who want to own guns. And you know look at them. They don't even do their own. Fucking background checks. They were like the school is fake with the money's real. Oh yeah i i. This is yeah. This is a very somber scam But i fucking appreciate it. I think it's a you know is. Sometimes it's necessary to like put in these motherfuckers face like what they're doing and i fucking support it. I'd love to know. And i'm sure this piece of shit doesn't care so that's really what postel right i mean. That's the end of the day. It's a beautiful demonstration but you can't reach people like this no not at all at all they don't care like there's some people who just don't care about humanity they're like i get one life. I'm predator. I'm here to give minds. I don't care who i her. I just want to get my things exactly. Yeah and that's a fact like just because you care or you are impacted or or you resonate with something emotionally or whatever. It doesn't mean that other people are gonna be on that same wavelength and yeah and i think that speaks so a lot of like what why are politics tend to go round and round in circles because you have one group of people trying to get another group of people to get it and it's like it's not that they don't get it they don't give a fuck right and that's why we have the same talking points about black lives matter or about you know. Queer people trans people having rights is because they know was right. They just don't wanna do shit. They don't care we cannot convince people to care. That's i'll be thinking like damn we need to get back to like them. Marie-antoinette days if you weren't government you need to just be a little concerned that maybe somebody shopping head off. If you started to fluctuate somebody my storm. The busty need like a guillotine right outside of congress. I'm saying that we need to her government officials. I'm just saying it just seems like when you play. What people's livelihood and your whole life is plan with people's livelihood you are making choices whether people will live or die every day and there are consequences and that's the thing like there should be some looking us now however many months after january six. What's really happened since nothing. It's just been slept in the fucking rug that hundreds of people storm the fucking capital and like did all kinds of crate like and we're just sweeping. That should have been wrong. All the fucked up shade trump did in office did in his time in business. All the he'll never go to jail. He'll never be punished because he was the. Us president and that sets a bad precedent to the world. If we admit that we actually criminal a criminal criminal like joppa doing all types of crime like chump doing crimes as he came out the fucking wounds you would add about somebody's. Crime portfolio really being diversified trump's sparring. Folio thinks he ads and everything. She's a crime to be done and will be of all me. He framed people for murder. You salted people. Money evaded taxes. He had faked charity of fake colin. How to tell you. This man has the most diverse crime portfolio. I've ever seen. He got that dp. Cadavers crime portfolio raw rounded when it comes to crime nobody's beating donald j. You know. I wish i could talk about it more. If he wasn't so damn evil. I would do more episodes on him because he's got so much crime in his pocket. He is an excellent scammer. And a warragul man. Yes like. there's no consequences for this shape because we don't allow for consequences -actly exactly and i just think we should be like a little consequence. I look. I'm not saying we need to kill politician. That's terrible the fbi fbi's like hello my door right now. Agent is going off right now. He literally is texas group challenge. Oh we got this bitch now. Finally raggedy home we wait. I slip up. I'm just saying like. I don't know maybe they can get a woman or something you know. Did you see a few pebbles adam. Azzam's they fuck up like you know in your home stay. I'm sure you're probably following how the democrats left the state so they won't have to vote on the restricted voting. Did you hear that. No this is the second time i've done that. But so this time. So there were supposed to have a vote. On like the restrictive voting laws that republicans and texts are trying to enact in order to disenfranchise poc poor people etc mainly democratic leaning voters. And so the democrats in the texas a legislature. Whatever they basically like hopped on a plane at the eleventh-hour and flutes fucking dc in order to not be present for the vote. Because you have to have a certain amount of people in order to even hold the boat the vote and so basically they. They kidnapped themselves. And like and got outta dodge so at the end they went to the they went to in order to like demand that the voting rights bills that are out there are actually passed. Because you know they're being affected out there and so anyway the point under the reason i brought that up is because in texas. There is a law on the books that you can arrest politicians for not showing up. And so they're basically trying to enact that like arresting these motherfuckers. You got some wild blue laws that are still on the books that texas wiles is fun. Dog learned about it. I'm like wow a very wild place you know. We used to be our own country and and we still bright flag which is very bizarre very bizarre that we prayed to fabric in general That we it's fabric that a nice little little white lady soda or back in the day and now we all gotta pray to it every day and we did. I remember coming up at school. We did the pledge allegiance every single day and then we did honor the texas flag. I pledge allegiance to the texas one and indivisible. Oh my god that's crazy. Gang gang and member the law and order sound comes in going. Wow that's wile. Texas like texas teaches a lot like texas history. You know you teach the history of your state absolutely texas after like went on a little too long. We all went to the movies to watch that movie. Alamo when it came out. Dan wit. To the alamo And really disappoint says. I grew my hearing about the alamo hag gotta remember it you know and you know what happened and david crockett and the rest of the girls and even though we lost that fight. That's the that's the weird thing about. The alamo is remembered alabama lose their. She was probably forgetting southerners. And losing battles and never forgetting. I gotta forget slavery. Though don't forget that we need to forgive slavery mccain for gay the confederates leg how we pose. Forgive slavery won't put that flag out. Okay leslie like the flag goes hidden in hand with the slave for read. We all know that right. Anybody okay like why can't black people just get over it. And then they're like waving a confederate flag bearing like like og confederate uniforms like. What are you what's happening here. And a statue of mr. Mr murderer their their favor.

We're going to be talking about a specific world of scams and we're GONNA be reading your listener letters, so tweet us if you hear your story, Priscilla was. Hey. How you doing? Hey guys, everybody. I'm girl rate I'm excited to talk about some scams. IOS Wait, so, have you ever had any scams happened to you in your professional life like your workplace? Have I ever had any work. I I mean I'm sure I have any workplace scams happens. No, but I've definitely participated in workplace. I Acting Wise. I have not so much. That's a lie I've told you guys on the show. I've worked for several drug France. I look I didn't realize they were drug fronts at time. Okay, I was very young. I was twenty nineteen years old and I didn't realize it was supposed to be taking money out the cash register and write notes like who he came in and said he wants twenty dollars, and then I write a note for you know. That was supposed to be happening apparently Better I knew no better. You know we know better. You do better or you get better at doing bad. Changing. So today we're going to read some of y'alls, letters of some y'all wrote in about some very interesting workplace Ganz. We know this is a crazy time. A lot of people millions of Americans are out of work. A lot of people will be returning to jobs that they were furloughed from in unfortunately, a lot of people will be looking for new employment, so that despot meter is hi. Honey because we've been locked in these house without these checks coming. So! We don't to keep you guys informed. So. The first game we're GONNA. Talk about is a scam targeting lawyers. which I thought was crazy. Because you know lawyers, the law. Is An editorial scam. That's very true actually and the person. Give me a name for this person who wrote in Priscila fake name. I mean I need to a little bit more about the personality they're like. Give me a fake name. Let's call is let's call them. Caches Old Leg. For sure woman and I love it cash. So. Cash says I wanted to tell you about a scam. That's been targeting the legal community the original scammers. Let's be real like you said PRISCILA caches. You are on the same side. One of the lawyers of my networking group got scammed by it starts with the seemingly potential client reaching out to a lawyer looking for representation, usually someone who's trying to collect a debt or other outstanding payment I actually received one of these emails where the guy was claiming that his employer owed him a six-figure severance package that hadn't been paid out. The email came complete with cooperating documents. I received attachments that were supposedly emails from the employer, apologizing for the delayed payment and promising to pay immediately. So basically, this seems like a good opportunity for lawyer is like you know If you've been hits, and you know like the cash seems like it's going to be pretty easy to get right, so lawyers will be tempted by this. Yeah which makes sense because if you have a case that's just about getting money like as a lawyer Hell Yeah I will take it once the lawyer start seeing dollar signs dancing in front of him with the supposed slam dunk case. The scammer than asked if they can pay by the hour, which is music to every lawyers ears a client who wants to pay by the Hour So. You OUGHTA know issues too good to be true. Whenever bothering. Say Attention. Now I told you there have been times where people offer me. Money and I was like this probably a scam, but I went and I got the money, so you not. I needed it. So! Seems too good to be true in. That's because it is. The scammer then tells the lawyer he will wire the retainer payment to the lawyer trust account. The payment will see wires whenever I hear about a wire. Translate Trust Trust a wires. All here's is Nigerian scam. That's all. I'm walking out and walking out with my briefcase if I'm that lawyer. Do People carry briefcases that he wore I. was I had a job where I could carry a briefcase. That's just like I wanNA walk around like Emily's Keaton for no reason I want my briefcase to be hard to not that soft bullshit. You gotta be able to slam it on the table. Lead motherfuckers. No, you didn't come to play. I believe we could get away with just that alone like somebody who believed that we were? Just go everywhere slamming a briefcase on the table. Slamming a briefcase on the table. This is free okay. So Well so basically you know this is developing into being a scam. There's a wired transfer, and then the money goes to the trust. The payment will look like a clear, and then the client will tell the lawyer that he needs the funds for some sort of emergency, or he will terminate the representation now one eight to run afoul of the very strict rules regarding trust accounts. Accounts the lawyer will return the money to the client by writing a check from the trust account, then of course magically the payment will bounce, and the trust account will suddenly be out of a whole bunch of money, which puts the attorney into some real deep shit. Because the money, he said probably belonged to other clients. Trust account so there's like other people's money in their. My colleagues firm got taken for twenty five thousand dollars with a scam. Just goes to show. Money could buy law degree, but it can't. You Common Sense to read all? I'm just like. have. Carried a case. You have more sense. That's all I. Yeah, you know this guy in Canada briefcase. Probably gotTA I. What. What are you doing, Bro, get you A. Briefcase! Stop playing around these hoes come on. We gotta take it back to the eighties. Okay, you need to be in a gray suit doing lots of cocaine. You mean to have a briefcase, okay? You trying to be modern ish in got scam. I mean that's crazy. Because then you're liable for that money that you laws I mean this is so intricate. Notice at one point in this letter, the person says the lawyer knowing trust rules and legal trust laws. So this is a layer tight like to know that trust laws like. Oh, no, you can't fuck with a trust. Okay, so I have to give these people their money back. That's why with me. I was very interested in like who the scammer is because this is just so. I. Don't think this. Run a mill scam you have to have some sort of education is like a paralegal going rogue. Probably is. Being your own, it'd be your own right, but this is honestly motivating me. 'cause you know like school online colleges of. DC Alley. They teach you how to be a paralegal. Go to that school shock win. and start running a scam. You can get a degree from Lil Romeo. You know. He runs that school I see. DC saved her. Little Romeo personally gives you the. Is, a piece of paper that he just writes real. Quick on it. It's been very beautiful. Excellent penmanship. Handwritten! A legit as scam though like it's great. This is like you scamming. The scammers like you really want that smoke if you're GONNA, go scam a lawyer. Right because I just doesn't seem like the I like lawyers were supposed to be very disheartening. They're supposed to be looking at every angle and. How to get one of them, so easily is just shocking. I, think this is also interesting because you had to have supporting documents that, so the he just Ri- All these emails he was just him self. He's got to be running the same scam and just taking the same exact paperwork, maybe changing the dates. Running on different firms. I mean he has to he I. Mean Twenty Five Thousand Dollars can only go so long. He's gotTA. You've gotta make more. If he's getting twenty five K.. Lick. That's that's good from just sitting at home. Tam I've just I. I mean honestly when I hear this. I'm really thinking. The fault lies with the lawyer. I don't blameless camera. Just. Like how did you get bamboozled by that light? Come on. Like everything sounds suspect from up top, and I'm not even a lawyer. Okay I only play one on TV, sometimes so. Right how? I'm making. It was a shady lawyer who probably was a tough having a tough time in their life. You know it was like like. Maybe they weren't like killing it or getting as many cases or I mean they were. Though was. It has to be a nice law firm now to have like a trust like. Do you think like The AVOCADOS GOTTA Trust. Apple got. Don't disrespect. avocados okay. I. You'd be surprised I. Bet you like maybe like having a trust is like a requirement to to have A. What do you call those things legal companies I don't even speak this language a firm. That's it. We go company. When you have a legal business. The and this. Law Okay. We got we got a legal cease. Put the money on CNN. We come due to legal for you. Okay, yeah, briefcases! Oh in that case I'm signing up right now. So I don't I don't know. He must've been a tough spot. Though, but their firm had a lot of money if he could take out twenty five k. like that. Does that have to be approved by anybody? I have so many questions I have so many questions also like, did he like? Does he get like disrespected by the lawyers at the lawyer? Bar, at the end of the day you know when they go to get their five o'clock drink. All here comes this nigger hair. Says! They got opportunity. The cash is all I need is the law firms credit card you. Head to terminated right I'm pretty sure they had to have been terminated. I mean unless they unless they. Unless they. The firm I just I. Don't know I. AM. Team scammer here, I. Don't know you ask that, but. I did not. See volunteer that Info. Let's move on to another one. We got a corporate scam staying within the world. So, I'm a call this person. Todd! That's nice. I can't believe I know todd's in real life. It feels like no one should be named Todd I know Yeah Todd, bridges. But I wouldn't mind knowing him tie if you're out there, listening to the. Done, if you're listening to scam, got its on stitcher premium. Odd Bridges please contact Priscilla. So taught says just wanted to give you a small quick corporate scam that are ap manager said happened that his firm. Apparently when he started, there was a recurring bill for thousand dollars a month for a retainer for consultancy services from an executive recruiting firm on the invoice. It outlined that details were confidential, and to discuss with the CEO for clarification, and it always came in as a forward from the CFO I e, the email said please see CEO's approval in previous emailed with a ton of information blacked out for confidentiality since the email looked exactly like their internal formatted. They hated every month. When they went to switch to a new processing system for payments the in Wisconsin to the CFO to approve digitally, and he asked what it was for turns out, he'd been paying it monthly for three years, and it was a fake email sending to pretend like pretending to be an internal email. Oh I not sure if he could get away with it now, but enjoy I'm. Probably still get away with it because you know like a bunch of major companies. In Silicon Valley. We're getting invoiced for years like Google was getting invoice for years by a stranger. They all relaying because they have so much money, it oak must be nice. I was somebody who does invoice me. For that. This has been somebody who works a of times. I feel like these scammers are sprouting out of under. The underlings of the company 'cause it was you know the company's internal formatting and all this information you have to be like it has to be someone who works there. That's what I am fifty thousand dollars. That's what they that's what they got away with. Yeah if you're getting a thousand dollars a month for three years. Oh my God. Oh My. The budget department notice two, hundred, fifty six. And nobody knows fifty two grandma's than at the end of the year. Will. They must have been a. you know a fancy company. They didn't notice. They were like they were. NC lawyer Alex dollars that means. One. How. So. Basically impersonated. or I should say dude person. We don't know this person impersonated hope it wasn't woman. Please I'm just GonNa, call her Mary, so Mary impersonated. The company to their damn selves. And then got paid. She's my queen. With like the CRTV. No, don't ask him like I. also feel like any time. Somebody's trying to prove to you legitimacy they. You should be alarmed like everyone out there. If you're working in a company in, you're getting emails. It says per my previous emailer. Check this form that I sent you or Blah Blah Blah. They're trying to prove to you. The legitimate and they're asking for money should always ask questions. I mean, but if you like, if you're a company, that's rich. You like I means no sweat off my back until fifty six thousand dollars later three years. That's true, though fuck, these corporations honestly event by decision even invoice a you work at Amazon or you work at Walmart. You know what just pay everybody absolutely sure just how? You're just a cog in the wheel. Just share the wealth. Right until they started to write BIOS we're GONNA pay anybody's invoice. Who this did this person get caught or they are living on an island and we don't know these are these are listener letters so i. don't know the fate of any of these people because I can't properly investigate for all we know is a scam. Maybe they made up those story. Maybe Oh, wow, that's crazy! I. Think honestly this this I mean. I'm like so far. This is my favorite. Scan out of the two. That I've heard. This is just like rich. It's great I, mean it's like. Damn that's bad bad shit I. Definitely think Mary's a Babich. I'm very much into whoever this person is. so let's keep going guys, so we know you're out there. Looking for jobs these are crazy times. We gotta listen to wrote into the. She nearly got scammed by a craigslist recruiter. I personally is is hard. Do you continue get jobs off craigslist anymore? You know what I personally haven't in about six years but. Like craigslist used to be that shit boy, but you know you always have to be prepared to possibly can as well and murdered I i. those are the caveats craigslist. It was like live on lame reate. A minimum wage job or A murderer. I've I have literally almost been murdered from craigslist interview, so I hate America I hate it here. It's so ghetto like we capitalism says hey, you need to eat you to pay these bills, so you better go to this possibly murder interview to get possibly a job. That's how desperate aren't the our community? Are The people in this country like we loved saw tweet that was like America is the Third World country in a Gucci Belt and I said that's it. That's the tweet because it is so sam get! Like when you're, citizens have to risk life in accurate. And we don't think about we're so desensitized to it. We're like yeah. I gotta go to this alley. Because you know you've got to pay these bills. Go pay herself. Okay, so got Mace and a nice in a whistle. And maybe I'll have GEL. I can't tell you how many okay. That's actually an ad for craigslist. craigslist being very honest now they're like you making murdered, or you may get a vintage oak dresser. Murdered or you may get a part time job. The choice is yours. Yours is yours. You want to stay home where you're not getting murdered, but you also getting paid. I don't I mean when you have to like. Send three of your closest friends like addresses and license plate numbers for a job interview I mean. You're right. Out of this never mind. Out of this, so you take your ass back there. So this woman says I'm GONNA call her. Sean! So. Sean says longtime was all very nice stuff. All right Shonda move past though so she says I was recently at a job searching thanks to the Rona. and I came across a craigslist ad looking for a graphic designer, not far from my home I looked at the business name address on employs, and all looked good reputable company around for lots of employees on linked in so I applied so she did her due diligence. She was scared like scammers. They're aware that you know people are now checking for validity, so they're not just coming out here with the fake emails like they used to honey. Like at the scammer convention they were like Ladies and gentlemen. People are checking for validity now. We got to step up our game. We've got a brain. They have a convention every year. Scam Synergy. Okay six Sigma Scam. Okay. They've got charts. That'd be great to have a scam convention. It should host the I want scam. I think you should. I'll do. Yes! Please do the powerpoint. Okay so. There may be some weird things in there, but it just goes the important stuff, right. There's a lot of pop ups in this powerpoint presentation Miss Davies. It's just a it's just a little business. I'm trying to promote nothing nothing anyway, okay. This seems like more of a business promotion than than for something for the convention. You're scamming US right now. You can with your powerpoint. Ud Swimming at the scammer convention. That's honestly what everyone should be doing. They're a few days later. I received an email from someone saying that they are a recruiter for that company and asking me to choose an interview time slot anytime between ten am and six PM. It also listed the name of the hiring manager email address in asking me to send an interview time to her, so she says red flag number one was at the email sin. Time was four am. You Win Business. That's what my lawyer beat and this is open. All right with me. Red Flag number two was asking for a same day interview with the entire day available. Yeah, that's facts like you're interviewing. Lots of people like you're supposed to have slots. So calmness any time for this interview anytime. Like you're your interviewer isn't supposed to be like you what you do. Agra. Agra! Modi's like you. When your email is, wip is stomach. For, a job interview, no, No red flag number three was both email addresses the recruiter, and the manager were g mail accounts, and not the company's name, but I looked hiring manager on link lengthened, and it all looked good plenty of references so I thought maybe they grabbed a quick Jim account so that craigslist people don't get their work account, so she's she's. The wheels are spinning because we need jobs, so at this point. He's rashes and this is what we call rationalizing. Is Rationalizing. She's like look. Yes. I have to take a knife and pepper spray. For some reason. We're meeting at two am in an alley. But. When I go good them, everything seems like what. Yes I'm walking down the street right now. And I just saw women's scream and run from the exact alley that I'm going to legit. Maybe she didn't get the job and she was upset. Just like any way you can rationalize I. Get it. I've been there so. We Two PM interview and the time came. I didn't hear anything. No email phone call nothing then at two thirty I. Get a g chat from hiring manager, saying that the interview would take place over G. Chat. This was a huge red flag for. As I had already offered my zoom account for a video interview, but she declined also where you got to offer the the mediums for the interview. You Me Ozone Zone. They're like no, no, no, no! About face time. Can we do a facetime none of them? How about how? Can We? Do you have what? Do you have a okay AOL instant message? How about Yahoo Messenger, thank you, but it works, but it works. Do you have hotmail? Conducting. You. Know actually we're on a ready to cow. You could just comment under our calm. Conduct the interview their own my God. Shady, so she declines. She asked for the zoom interview. The recruiter reclined declined next was questions. I ask so. They asked her these questions. Do. You have a Home Office. Number One. Okay, tell me what company privacy means to you Want to close my computer, right? What does company Privacy Mean to you? Let me just say this much, is this? What kind of question? Things I've learned in life. The first three ingredients in anything are the most important, so that was the second question. They asked you flags up. I love Schanzer though because she was smart, she the game. I understand that why she went full like. Long throughout the scam, because we ask needed a job and I definitely would have been. So weird, but you know coins. Kept looking. I mean in a desperate state would definitely have scrolled onto the next question. We are GONNA pandemic. So if there's any time to allow scammers to waste your time, it's during a pandemic and I'm with it, so she copy pasted number three. She copy pasted the job description from craigslist and the company website mission and vision into the chat and asked me if I was experienced and interested in the position so. You don't interview questions. She was like Damn. She really want to do this in A. Company to me you. Walks on the beach Own! Why cursing into the Chat Oh. oops, you can see that. Would you rather? Mary via Kill A. Have you ever? Oh, my gosh playing drinking games. Like look are. These. Oh my God. You sound like trump trump to be able to say anything I. Don't know if he ever actually said this, but it was the funniest thing. I ever saw what people are dying. Who Never Dad before and I was like? That is a fact trump. That's the first thing you've ever said people. Dying never died before. Water everywhere. My computer's broken continue. Okay so to ask these terrible questions. Then she began to rattle off all the equipment. They would be sending me Mac book, printer, scanner, random stuff, and telling me how they would send me a check to deposit and purchase all the stuff from their approved vendor. There it is, there's the skating they. Go, get your briefcase and go get your briefcase Shandra. So. Stan Schanzer basically says this is when I rise check fraud scam. We've talked about check fraud scams so much If you're just starting to hear about us, talking about check, fraud scams also quickly summarize it. Where someone writes a hot track you deposit. The new been said money, but there's actually no money in the check so basically. She realizes that this is a check fraud scam. Clearly, it was gonna were gonNA give her a bad check, and then have you deposited spin from it, but as soon as the bank discovers that it's fraudulent. The money that you spent is now your own, and you have nothing except for the person's fake email address, so they were about to gator but I'm glad she discovered this good. You Sean to get briefcase ago She said clearly I would not have gone along with his messy scammer I. Am not the man, the fans or corporation I'm just trying to find a new job. Not Cool So. I decided to be a Karen Hey look Cairns. Are Normally bad. But. It's okay to call the manager on a scammer I personally. But I don't want to see people in these desperate times getting scammed when they're just trying to get employment, so sis put on that blonde wig sweep those banks to the side. Okay should spiky. Better be you better? Have Gorilla Glue in it? Okay now drew Carey and if you ain't got no spiking here, okay is a month. She called the fans on these people. She reported them to Greg's list. She reported them to the feds. And then she also reached out to the people on linked in who they were masquerading as and told them that people were out here putting putting on an. All hold up. We want because she. She did the D, so they stole somebody's identity yet I. E. Off Wing Thin, so they pretended to be real legitimate people who are on linked in who are recruiters. And then they made up aac email addresses that resemble those people's names, and that's how they had see. They were thinking. You gotTa Focus Smart. Rookie proud of them. Zoom do need to right to help shock I. It makes a lot of sense, though because the people didn't want to zoom chatter anything on facetime, because if you saw their facial realized, they don't match Lincoln Picture. Do. Zoom believe. Also if they if they actually did a video John, it would just be a guy with a big scar across his space in IPAD. In an alleyway. I wonder if we're just. Under construction right. I wonder if they're like A. was about to say. I wonder if they're even American, or if they like their English is good. Because the woman who was doing the G. Chat, just copy pasted the mission statement from the website and it seemed like she can really ask a lot of questions. But you wonder if what like because you know, sometimes, you'll be like foreign countries or foreigners who are running these scams like. I wonder if they were good with English because she legit copy pasted the ad from craigslist into the G. Chat, interview. You know what I'm saying. It was a four. Yeah I see what you're saying 'cause it's like when you get those like eighteen or not at and T., but like your from Your Company whatever that tells you that we just purchased something, but it's not like broken. England like own this. Don't seem accurate, but I shouldn't just click on this link anyway to be safe. Oh my goodness! We'll Sean. I'm so glad that you didn't end up falling for the scam. You did a lot of research into it I think you might use Gamma Yourself Shandra because you seemed very intrigued by this country. I feel like I appreciate Chandra's dedication I appreciate you know 'cause when you're in those tough times. It's like just for the sake of your your mind being at risk because she didn't want to be up at night like damn, what I had just but Schaja was paying at the end of this. She says she got back on. and asked if they wanted to do facetime interview or continue the interview and she, in of course, the scammer said no this you said we'll continue the interview if you just your brick and mortar address, and of course did. She says she wants to send a handwritten. Thank you, letter. Shake their head. Like. I have a wire I'm working for the FBI now. She's fully like where you wire now. There's people in a van outside of her apartment Chidren. I love it I love. How does She says thanks for taking my scam, I wrong in all caps, which girl?

The Central Park Five but at times especially, these dark aasheim Chow it was nice to just have a black getaway like, yeah. Yeah and we're outside the whole like most of it it's just like blunt nature. Everyone's gorgeous. Everyone's really funny. It was so fun to shoot to like we're in Malibu for a few weeks and it was having a great time I. Fully. Fully. Eleven Selah. Maggie is writer director, Black Woman that was the first time ever had that. That was amazing. It's just felt good all around and I'm glad it's out on Hulu Amazon people can watch it.

As he was cutting up the whole time like onscreen off. Addison tears the whole time she's me she's full-blown comedian and you always wonderful about her twos. I'm sure shooting in Malibu's pretty nice. We were shooting in Savannah Georgia. The Nets were attacking us. We were falling into the ocean like this was not a light shoot like there were definitely times that I thought I was die. Is We don't add it. Can Be so upbeat and happy about everything like if she like Mr Line or something she like don't call Jack Harry, they'll call Jack Harry. Very I love that so far. Do, you have any relationship scams have you ever been scammed? It'd be ran a scam. I. Feel like in my early twenties. I got scammed ally just because my face is so like trusting like I, feel if you will be looking at me and be like. That's that's an easy target like I said the word green tattooed on my forehead you will they are as I will say, I look when I make you very much. I feel like I feel like my I. Don't know how I describe. It is just a look like I. Do feel like now I look I do love Nice but like I have more of like I've lived right like in my eyes. But at the time I was slack ev excited. Really Like Oh, she's new I remember rows walking down the street in New York in Manhattan and I passed by a psychic place in this woman was sitting in the window looking out. A psychic and she saw me pointed at me it was like you like ushered me waving me in. she needs health. So I like. How's it? She needs me and she sat me down charge me for a long time. She has something very important to tell you. It's important that you of all people get this information and I'll tell you if you pay me twenty five dollars and I was like Oh my God people in New York are so helpful like. People keep saying the opposite and yet here she is pay twenty five dollars. She got off the streets and says, I have teeth as just for you life or day has no one else was doing that enter your credit card info. And I will save your life but technically, that's how it works too. So did you bay? I wised up I did talk for way too long but then I was like I have to go. I don't think this is right. That's a person that is what the that's a great scam because that's person who is counting on your empathy and building the sense of a relationship, which is probably why she talked to you so long so she could disarm you and you could be like well, I don't want to waste her time like I guess I should pay twenty five dollars to see if I live tomorrow. Absolutely yeah, I got I got two choices. I wake up and see or. Participate twenty, five dollars now. And now. Truly, that's okay. I could see that but you don't seem to me like a march so I would say that Thank you I appreciate. Play you talk to her and yet I I did say now there's other times where like people would just ask me for money on a train like they pass a whole car people and be like well, she doesn't know any better and I didn't and like, I, one time I gave a guy's money 'cause he had a whole story about lake needed to take the train somewhere to find his sister you know like something and Again Rahman egging bells like this will help him go have a full day get back on the subway. He's still there asking for money I was like. I just gave him the money. He needed to get the ticket to go see his sister and you wanted to update like how is your sister? Did. You see her in that. Now, where are you going? Is it different sibling but what's going on? I felt like thankfully nothing seriously bad happened to us get me out of like a lot of money or anything but actually. This also didn't happen, but it was creepy. So I was hard by money and I want on craigslist like fine gigs and. And I've been told I have. Nice feat. There was. Mad At if you. Put Them. Tell on the corner you got to do. It takes a while for comedy start paying you so. Find something to supplement the years. So of like let's you can do and somewhat some guy was like I run a website where I make videos with feed your face and body does not have to be in it but you know. People will watch it for your feet and he's inside Emailed him any responding here's an example of the videos and it was him like Ted or you know like some dude. Like a very portly man kind of rolling around in wrestling with women's feet in like putting them on his face and I was like. Is this like our our people actually watching her or just for Ted? Like No. Being like. Upload Sure Knock Definitely Upload in. WHO's watching this? I can't wait to see the next adventure Ted's going on with these like he was mostly it was mostly him in the video and the feet were happened to be there was I don't think that's right I. Don't think that's what people want. So I just didn't respond the foot fetish industry is so straight spoiled. So the fact that he was like I'm going to be the star, your feet are going to be like the CO, Star like. I'm GonNa put you in some open toe socks and. Play with them for now. Just trying to get people to let him play with a fee I. think that's what that was. Yeah. Yeah. Pimp when you're doing footwork 'cause you could just do that at home. I can be an entrepreneur. I just put my feet in the camera. Have, a live feeder whatever and then people pay I think I know that now I didn't know that then right what year was that technology was probably yeah. That was probably two, thousand, nine, ten, I feel like that's when people started just getting Internet famous right like my space was over but and then people starting to move to you too. But it wasn't like, yeah that was like the boom of the youtube people, right right. I wish I had got in on that. I could have just been on the Internet aloe scratching my ass I'D BE A. Millionaire by now yeah. Although it seems like all who are super famous in the beginning with Youtube, are getting called out for all the crazy shit. They've been doing for the last ten years and being like, Oh, I guess that was racist when I dressed up like a Muslim woman and ran through the streets you know like like like shame Dawson who was doing black face and not even funny black face could able to do black bass can you at least be Robert Downey junior in Tropic Thunder? We'd never canceled him because it was Holler because it. And he was aware that was part of joke. But yeah, there's people who. Were not well equipped with the information on why that would or would not be funny and random muck. Yeah. He got attacked by Will Smith's family too because of that poster where he was pretending to jack off to the baby willow, the Oh don't fuck with the smiths now and. Let him go to the table. He Ain't get close today. You are not invited to the table change like please let me come to the table Jada clean the table I'll do whatever you need me to do. Yeah I can't believe they thought it was a good idea like if you go to the Queen Collection, you're like Yay this is it your Alabama like something come on now? You're already wrong if you're purchasing stuff that doesn't match your skin like you're just. You know right step one if you are down in deep brown in Deep Tan of the Bobby Brown section is probably you probably have to do something. Wrong. There was did you watch American mean? It's it was on Netflix's lake talking about the like the viner's and the people getting famous the Internet. I think the fat Jewish was in there in Paris Hilton, and there was one girl. who was like big on vine and she was starting about her downfall I mean she's still very famous. She was like, yeah. All these people got more famous. She's like people call me races in his like I didn't get didn't get it because like they don't have a sense of humor and then they cut to a video where she's like. She liked drew like a one, a unit brow like made her skin dark. Like. Around I, guess he was trying to be a New York Cabbie. I don't know but it was just like just like had a horrible Arab accent and I was like Oh girl Oh of course without year racist she does not like people are being too sensitive. It's okay but look at your content choose that people are being too sensitive they cut to her in the clan row. I. Don't get it business comedy. How Tie News. What know what? Girl What are you doing? Yes. To soft. Well. Let's talk first segment after a good healthy dose of Fun Racism. We exit light So this is what's hot and fraud. So I'm GonNa tell our listeners they write in they snitch on their friends on their family on themselves as always guys scam got his potted Jima Dot Com snitch on everyone you know but to leave out the details, make sure it's a retired con unless you wanNA share with the community. So this one seems like. What okay. What does he want me to call him give me your name. She's here. Jeremy Jeremy. Okay. So Jeremy wrote in and he says. Oh, it does he want to be named James. You've gotta put that up top I'm calling you dear so. Jeremy says one year I went to work at Yellowstone National Park the company that provides hospitality. There is called Zen terra everyone lasts x that sounds like a birth control pill and we started seeing Thira. My problems. Right, so they also provide hospitality for other national parks across the country I. Left a week before I was scheduled to start working and called Mount Rushmore to get a free room as I was passing through. They provided a free employee room for a couple of days. If you WANNA stay for free at a national park sign up to work at a different park call for a room that's on the way bring the employee contract and when you're done called employer at ten of you ain't Goin' com. Say Saris something came up and I can't work here this season hope to work with you in the future good luck a godless. Thank you. Yeah that's good. I. Like that and every national parks our government. Sunday. Yeah they're fine. You know if you know we anti-government over here like the. Fine the trees take advantage. Yes. The Salat they'll be flying I know do because it's something I would have never thought of because I guess. I guess I didn't even know you could stay at a national park neither did I. Rooms to stay in Jammies? Definitely White. They have Intel that we don't get. There like. The outdoors are mine I can just go anywhere. Right. We're too busy worried about racism like trying not to get pulled over there like. Where can I stay in the mountains? So much time not worried about racism. So. That's the real scam right there I need to get my free time bag. Now Racism. But yeah. So I guess you can just do know if this works if anybody tries to let me know but I didn't know that you volunteered to work at a park or season. Yeah I didn't either that. Sounds cool to feel like. Not Working. You get to be in a park if you can't takes much right. Probably is probably not a lot of money. But what did you clean up trash like this and then you could hang out in the park right? I guess you give tours and Shit. Probably. Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Okay I guess because what did he say that it was? Volunteer or did he say okay. So does pay because he says employees. Yeah. So. that. Could be a nice. Eat pray love moment guys. The whole winter, not doing anything right cover yourself in a national park when I finally evolved into being a white woman which will have. that's my ultimate scam is I will be regarded as a white woman one day. If anything mildly inconvenient happens to me I just run off to a park for a while. Yeah I. Think it's a great idea. Deserves also like and there's like it's not high traffic you can just like get away but still be in America. It's. It's interesting. How many beautiful parks we have I feel dump saying this but it's like we have so many beautiful parts in. America. But like. I don't know I guess is just easier to stay in your little bubble and be like this is my city is my town the night like pass through Utah and been like Oh my God this is Utah Is. It's okay. This is beautiful and it's just been here the whole time. That's actually you know as you say that, I'm very culpable of that 'cause I will travel but it's mostly because my friends want to travel. So I'm like, okay, pick the place tell me where to bring my body to whenever I go I'm like Oh damn like mountains and Trees Yeah Yeah. Yeah.

Already and we are back and now it's time for historic hoodwinked regale us a cheer with a historic hoodwink and we're going to hear thoughts and her pinions throughout Today's scam comes from a man named garrison courtney which what a name. He was a fake CIA operative and he scammed out of four point one, four point four, million dollars. A lot of money. So how did it was before he worked at the DA? He served as a spokesman for the Republican congresswoman. Katherine Harris Shocker, People Republican Party being scammers what? I'm baffled actually all it's been happening for the end of time. Very true. Doesn't matter what? Oh God inside your on. So Courtney was a spokesman and that's garrison. Last name is courtney. So we'll just Tom Courtney from here on Karasin. Call Intel a long day. Gordon was a spokesman for the DA from two, thousand, five, two, thousand, and nine and the scam began three years. Later he presented himself as another person identified as individual a CIA operative, and so I guess he would just show up and be like hey I'm individual. He shouldn't tell people you're a CIA operative. Like none of those cool because I didn't tell you my name. Yeah. I just said individual. Hey, they're like, okay. I still see your face. Right this isn't during mask wearing time. This is thousand five. So he's fully on his face out here. So. He actually applied to be a CIA operative in two thousand five and received a conditional offer, but the offer eventually lapsed. So I guess he had the offer and then in two thousand, six at expired bunch of just get the Jonah. Yeah. He's not going to be good spy if he's letting. Procrastinating onto signing up at least come and he's like I I'm busy like what are you doing? Isn't that sounds like that's your job your dream job, right? Would you welcome to the CIA said Let me get back to the. Jury duty. So. We'll maybe it's that he realized that he could probably be more successful if you just pretended to be in the. which seems to be. Yeah. Absolutely. So he duped. Officials including senior military members by telling them that they had been selected to participate in a classified CIA program and needed the companies to place them on their payrolls to hide their affiliation with the spy agency. So Come up to you. I was a sergeant. Me Individual A. I'm going to put me on your payroll. 'CAUSE I. would hope that the military officials would do more research before they were like, yeah. That makes sense like you can figure that out right at the government. So wasteful spending. Especially, if you're talking about the military sector, we always got money for guns Americans. So tracks it's like America's like go home girl who you gave three hundred dollars because she says, she was in a bind in the next time. You see her she got some Gucci Slides and you like, where'd what did you get those? Where's my? She she asked for more money right and it's like we have money for size. We don't have money for you to give you. Right, that's America. Bitch. Can't stand. So He would just say you are now going to be a spat like the spy who shagged me. You don't know what I'm referring to do. anyways put away the awesome powers. Individual as secret for in. A yes. Yes. Yes. You gotta put on the pair on. This makes sense so. Prosecutors said the Gordon approached businesses and claim that they so-called. He was a task force right He was working on something that was created by officials at the highest levels of the federal government. His Task Force included the president of the United States the Attorney General. So He's the director of national defense was involved in this the Under Secretary of defense for intelligence and the Administrative Minister of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Okay. So everybody he was like anybody powerful Olivia Pope be six thirteen huck. Viola Davis analyst Kaeding. Somebody's people aren't real. So yeah. So. This is what he did with the power the story behind the nonexistent program from time to time. So sometimes, he would be like guess analyst Kaeding works for other days he'd be like, no, it's just George Bush? Sometimes he told victims at the program supported covert special, operation in Africa other times he explained that its mission was to enhance intelligence gathering capabilities in response to a former contractor leaking. Okay. I'm tired reading this so. Gordy lied about his background and went so far as to make them sign fake nondisclosure agreements barring them from discussing what he claimed was classified information. So basically, he scammed, you will be like Sinus India does you can't tell nobody else has cam to right right right or very smart. Very. SMART. Honestly, wish I thought of it. Can I still do it? I would love to anyone can make India. Right I'll I'll Anita's printer paper. so He created phony documents to show companies that they'd been awarded with contracts with various federal agencies in exchange for their assistance because of his former ties with the government and knowledge of the system, he was granted access to meet with the victims and disabilities known as s CIF's and an I is a sensitive compartment in. Facilities in an enclosed area within a building that's used to process sensitive compartment for okay basically. He, still for some reason, his key card worked I liked the bunker. Yeah. He, was getting sensitive information. Yes. So he had access to this place that was like a secret hiding that was used by the government legitimately. and. So he was bringing his home girls there. Like you'll you'll never guess. Is. Cute little bunker show you what else has access to it. That would make me feel legit. You took me to like a cute little like a little be sixteen thirteen bunker like in scandal that would make me sign over blow. It puts you on the payroll. Absolutely. You seem real. This is legit. So court told some victims they were under surveillance by foreign intelligence agencies and would search them for electronic devices and when his credibility was called into question because they were like, why are you search me with? He's probably those beach meg metal detectors. Like why is? This iphone. I don't think it's doing anything. As it is. Oh that's excellent. I hope it was just as iphone and people like sorry this feels wrong. So If if they would accuse him of being shady, he would accuse that person of being a spy for foreign powers. So. Basically just how did that work? I'm not I'm not lying. You're a spy is like what you've been surveilling this person So quote unquote right for a long time. You should know there's fire not. I feel like this is like the worst gas lighting like how? This feels uncomfortable and mean like you want comfortable and also. You walk telling the government. I'm telling the Black Man for twenty four all about. Wasn't ever really the president is. Like how are you? All your references are just from TV shows. You know who our president is right and it's like, yeah, of Morgan Freeman. The man from allstate commercials also man from Twenty Four. Okay. I take it back. That's what I meant. So Courtney. For his adult son to be hired by two of the victim companies even though he was unqualified. So in addition to getting himself on the payroll companies, he was like Sun is spy. I don't like that he got his son involved nepotism. I mean that happens all the time but I. Feel bad I mean maybe this game or two, but I just feel it feels like unwittingly setting yourself up to be to get into serious trouble later down the line. That's true I guess. But what if his son didn't know you know nepotism happens all the time. So when he was just like son, you got a job where now you have a job maybe hopefully. I just don't want him to be like complicit to a serious. Yeah. That's true. You're right there could be a bad side to this I. Hope The Sun didn't know but this guy seems like a little shady. So and also I'm guessing if I was the son in my dad was like, Hey, got your job as a defense contractor and like I majored in. Poetry. Something seems off. Learn this But I don't know entitlement widened tidal. You might think you did ask him so. Hey what you to do So aside, scam, this is just a side scam that he was running while doing other scams while the game was going on. Courtney managed to get a job as a contractor with a branch of the National Institute of Health that assists other federal agencies. In that role, he had access to sensitive non public information and was able to steer contracts towards companies where he was on the payroll I'm Oh gosh. So. First of all, your Workaholic Courtney this is this is a lie was a lot. You'll got baby let them jobs Uncle Sam is definitely go catch onto you. You May W. Twos. This is like the same energy want someone has multiple families where he just like you try to like hi, everyone from everyone else and you like I take a weekend trip and it's like what by in this family only has three day They live on Angie bringing. Yes families all the kids of the same name like. Too much to keep track of it is that is fun that's a smart way though you just name all your illegitimate kids the same names as your other kids. The Boys Brian Brian Brian Earl is is Gina. The grill is other Brian Everybody's name. I don't have enough bandwidth for anything else. Yeah. Just Brian. Please Brian One, two three. Data you. There's only two of us here in Lyon three. Oh. I was thinking about getting a dog. S. Oh, my gosh. So he added side scam where he worked at a legitimate business I. Sir. So obviously, this goes to trial the scheme lasted from twenty twelve until at least twenty, sixteen, Garrison Army pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud during a hearing in federal court in Virginia, he faces up to twenty years in prison at his sentencing is in October. So this is still going on we don't know how it's going to be in the clink and he must pay full restitution to the twelve unidentified companies a part of his plea deal. Now, I love how the companies were like don't put my name in there. That because it bears ING, they're coming to trial in masks and it's not for social distancing they're coming ski masks That fell for this. They have to be companies that we know. absolutely I want somebody like. Yeah I'm sure there's a way. I'm sure when they go through the trial have to make it public. Because, they'll have to testify you're right in the maybe if there's a jury, it's GonNa come out. We're going to know who the Anthonys guys. I'll keep the my ear to the ground on this because everything always comes out like I remember remember when at the Oscars they switched moonlight in La La land. Yeah I know who did that? You know like, Doug I know the guy he. he used to I, can't say too much. I don't want you guys to figure out who this is, but I used to perform with him and one day it. One of my other friends whispered to me he was like you know this his dad. And I was like on a mix so much sense and now I fully believe that it was an accident and that it really wasn't an intentional thing to try to give La La, land the award or to steal anything from you might knowing this guy's son like how he is I was like Oh. This is a man who was just genuinely excited made a mistake. Oh God, but I mean asset that was a huge mistake a very public mistake and that's why he tried to keep hidden. They were like it's brought shame on our family they're like living ever nine. Dan I can't say anything else. But yeah. So I, think this will come to light I think we'll figure this out. Yeah. I'm excited So the US Attorney's office says that they won't comment on whether individual a could face charges or if the person who was cooperating. Okay. So basically, he's saying like the Attorney's office right now is saying if you were cooperating with Courtney, we're not sure if we're going to press charges on it yet because maybe he really did think he wasn't scandal. Yeah, and maybe really did think that this was legit. So. I hope that the the marks don't get charged. Yeah, they were taken advantage of. But also like did you ever talk to anybody about this deep cover Operation Oyi? New Drinking Buddies military friends, billy signed the NDA they couldn't. Buddy honors those you just tell somebody don't nobody would I told you. We all have one friend woman break in for. Oh absolutely. Yes. I tell him everything. About to say as. Yes. Tight lipped. So that's a good person to have. We'll. Probably. I mean. I'm talking specifically about this any other capacity we all to? Oh yes. Absolutely. Yes. Okay. Guys. We'll. We'll be right back for the the sad. The end of the show after these non scam advertisements. Was Popping congregation I wanna take a moment to tell you about one of my favorite fiction podcasts.

This scam is an old day. So shout y'All who were in school twenty, five years ago. This person says, Hi, my name is divine in. You can use my name because twenty five years old. Okay. Usually. Back in my elementary school, we had these things called Davidson dollars. This sounds like something that happens twenty years ago. The money. The money was named after the school and had the school mascot a dragon on it. We earn the money by doing odd jobs around the school and behaving in class. This already sounds like a that the school was running on students 'cause like what kind of odd jobs are you having the students do like? All right. If you mop the kitchen, that's three Davidson. Go heading. To. Put the Sada's. That's one point five Davidson. Attorneys kids in the employees hate America I. Hate the economy go put these La- cheering to work like this guy. So. Will give him out for making good grades, and this day. Divan. was elected into the school justice systems and would work as a judge during his lunch hours log scam I want out. They got the kids doing they own judge work come on now. are running the school what the fuck where are adults? The, teachers were just like take a long lunch breaks and leave, and it's like you get ten Davidson dollars to proctor the exam today Tony. Hale. Ms Swamp is going to be her car smoking dooby. Opening Swanson what is proctor mean? Slots. Already, gone. Yeah. So this School is bizarre to stabilize He was a judge during his lunch hours and he saw different cases where people were counterfeit Davidson dollars and use them at the school to Redeem class. Prizes. been saved them to detention and whatnot. I mean also I love the fact that he has to take his he's working through lunch. Little Child. Elementary School is days working through his lunch anyway. Talk about I got these kids counterfeit David's I'm done. He had adjudicate. got these kids working Raven Simone. Like you start at three and you will never stop. So, he would give them detention and whatnot I'm very curious as to what what matty's. This school could have been shit. Right after getting a few cases and understanding how they got caught, I decided to give it a try while corruption corruption. Oh. This is this. Might. Of America like they were like we don't get these young capitalists on here quick David's Dallas. Stabbed my classmate install out. His Davidson. while. So adviser he tried to He. He decided to get his hand in the game and go dirty. He had a friend that worked for the bank they have a bank. And I got to see how the money was made. Took the knowledge I had and I printed a few one in five dollar bills because they were nothing and anyone wouldn't think to question and they were printed on plain. White Paper. Wow counterfeit we start the baby's counterfeit in elementary school elementary. So after a few months of doing this teachers and principals caught onto the students using fake money to buy things. So they changed all the money over to colored paper and double side printed the money I happen to get the inside knowledge before the switch because of my friend, the friend who works at the bank. This NIGGA is doing to the relief fucking much. Devon Devon. Arm Come on now. Coincidentally. My term was coming up and I was up for reelection. This story. Is Made. Up. It's very funny. This is insane. So he said he didn't have much time to print the money I tied with another young lady wouldn't make as much being a judge. So I decided to go bigger with my counterfeit Davidson Dallas I loved having inside knowledge and I needed my friends to be closer to me because he was my best then still to this day one of my best friends. So they got on the scam together and they are still tight I. Love It. was also in the court system as my deputy. Are Deputy. Because I had to share with the other what the hell. Okay. So because he had to share with other girl was the deputy this is complicated. So he said that he got another job at the student shop to prepare for his pivot. What I'm just keep reading I can't though because I couldn't print on white paper anymore and it was getting phased out. We would wash it through the banks storm with colored money I'm going to go now I don't want anymore. He's what he's laundering money I can't get in. We will watch it at the at the month store. You get what erasers pencil is he a criminal now I need to know because this is this a show she discovers born any you know like you're. A. He's at this point. We would exchange my small bills for larger bills whenever never got caught because my mom moved in the middle of fifth grade and I just had to stop the things we could buy were snacks, little toys, but we also had book sales and student. Market. Day where we could get close jewelry I bought my mom a hideous purple dress drew. We run that she never wore but kept it for years. I love the divine was like out here screaming and he was like here I got you something Nice Mama. From the Ohio work. On Davidson. Trim Sale Okay come on my house. Also, like how is the school funding all of this basically free shit that the kids are buying with fake money i. This up started being like maybe they cut a staff member at the school they they did. They were like, okay. We'll just have all the kids do the janitors Straw. If, we have all the kids do it will save money by paying them in Trinkets Davidson dollars. Okay. We don't need a deem let's just have the kids. They'll adjudicate their own problems. I can't believe it this first of awesome I want go to Davidson. Davidson. He says side note at the end the way kids got caught was because there was a water gun in store that was an astronomical amount of money when kids went to by teachers would step in and ask about it if you're keeping up with your grades or had multiple jobs, there's no way to prove. So basically they're saying like. So, if you're keeping up your grades and you had multiple jobs, there's no way to prove that you stow your Davidson dollars or counterfeiting. So he always kept multiple jobs Mike no look I'm paid out here. Okay. I worked in the Justice Department I gotTa Homey in the bank. I'm. Test. Though I have multiple jobs. But I guess it. Right. Gun. But if you have no job, so basically teachers were like the irs they go keep one shiny thing in their swooping like Uncle Sam like where you get all that money to buy that water Goto job, you're a bad percy. You get straight these. You're talking class last got kicked you out eight times. You don't deserve this nerve gun. The. Hell this. Line old Divan like. You might be in for some back pain. You might want to put out a suit against your elementary school 'cause they owe you for all this that you did. Have you or loved one worked at Davidson elementary and so suffered injuries from unpaid labor. Okay making these kids get in the air ducts. It's twelve Davison dollars if you get in the air to. Oh, my God we have. We've been having a rap problem. You bring back at. Eight billion dollars so in short if you went to elementary I'll go ahead and get back pay because y'all been working in the beginning it's not right it's not okay I love that everybody was scam everybody, the teachers scam and the students. Schools is. Basically. America. By literally. He learned lot in that school during the pandemic. There's a point where at the same time forty million Americans were unemployed and Jeff Bezos was on track to be the first trillionaire. Ooh, let's not even get a not to mention what he does his employees right? What happened to the trickle down what happened to like if we don't make billionaires pay taxes, they go hook it up they hooked up nothing. They'd never do they never. Do they never have and it's crazy. Keep like people still sign up for that shit like they never have so. I don't WanNa be a hater I. Don't WanNa be a hater, and maybe this'll be your motivation out there scammers. But the chances of you making a trillion dollars in your lifetime are extremely extremely extremely low. Don't let these billionaires and trillionaires tell you like you got to be poor your whole life because maybe you can be a billionaire like there. Maybe maybe you can have some rights like it's I'm to add waiting for rights. Okay. I made a billion dollars like our full jobs. was going on I four. Billion Dollars. Okay and he stealing billionaire. Okay. He wasn't even a billionaire in. The school dollars in the Davison dollars he couldn't even make a billion dollars and he was counterfeit. All that was a great scam. Oh man there's so anywhere else too. Many levels. Brilliant.

The Central Park Five. But at times especially, these dark aasheim, Chow it was nice to just have a black getaway like, yeah. Yeah and we're outside the whole like most of it it's just like blunt nature. Everyone's gorgeous. Everyone's really funny. It was so fun to shoot to like we're in Malibu for a few weeks and it was having a great time. I fully. Fully Eleven. Selah. Maggie. Is Writer Director Black Woman that was the first time ever had that that was amazing. It's just felt good all around and I'm glad it's out on Hulu Amazon. People can watch it guys want a break from the drama like please please watch the weekend. It's so good also I love him I worked with her on Florida girls and she's A delight. He was cutting up the whole time like onscreen off. Addison tears the whole time she's me. She's full-blown comedian and you always wonderful about her twos I'm sure shooting in Malibu's pretty nice. We were shooting in Savannah Georgia the nets were attacking us. We were falling into the ocean like this was not a light shoot like there were definitely times that I thought I was die. Is We don't add it. Can Be. So upbeat and happy about everything like if she like Mr Line or something like don't call. Jack Harry, they'll call Jack Harry. I. Very, I love that so far. Do you have any relationship scams? Have you ever been scammed? It'd be ran a scam. I. Feel like in my early twenties I got scammed ally just because my face is so like trusting like I, feel if you will be looking at me and be like. That's that's an easy target like I said the word green tattooed on my forehead You will be are as I will say I look like I make you very much i. feel like I feel like my I don't know how I describe it is just a look like I do feel like now I I do love Nice but like I have more of like, I've lived right like in my eyes but at the time I was slack ev excited. Really. Like Oh, she's new I. Remember Rows Walking Down The street in New York in Manhattan and I passed by a psychic place in this woman was sitting in the window looking out. A psychic and she saw me pointed at me. It was like you like ushered me waving me in. she needs health. So I like. How's it? She needs me and she sat me down charge me for a long time. She's like I have something very important to tell you. It's important that you of all people get this information and I'll tell you if you pay me twenty five dollars and I was like, Oh my God people in New York are so helpful like People. Keep saying the opposite and yet here she is pay twenty five dollars she got off the streets and says I have teeth as just for you life or day has no one else was doing that enter your credit card info. And I will save your life, but technically, that's how it works too. So did you bay? I wised up. I did talk for way too long. But then I was like I have to go. I don't think this is right. That's a person that is what the that's a great scam because that's person who is counting on your empathy and building the sense of a relationship, which is probably why she talked to you so long so she could disarm you and you could be like well I don't want to waste her time like I guess I should pay twenty five dollars to see if I live tomorrow. Absolutely. Yeah. I got I got two choices I wake up and see or. Participate Twenty five dollars now. And now. Truly. That's okay. I could see that but you don't seem to me like a march. So I would say that Thank you, I appreciate. Play you talk to her and yet I I did say now there's other times where like people would just ask me for money on a train like they pass a whole car people and be like well, she doesn't know any better and I didn't, and like I one time I gave a guy's money 'cause he had a whole story about lake needed to take the train somewhere to find his sister you know like something and. Again, Rahman egging bells like this will help him go have a full day get back on the subway. He's still there asking for money I was like. I just gave him the money. He needed to get the ticket to go see his sister and you wanted to update like how is your sister? Did you see her in that? Now? Where are you going? Is it different sibling but what's going on? I felt like thankfully nothing seriously bad happened to us get me out of like a lot of money or anything but actually. This also didn't happen, but it was creepy. So I was hard by money and I want on craigslist fine gigs and. And I've been told I have. Nice feat. There was. Mad At if you. Put them tell on the corner you got to do It takes a while for comedy start paying you so. Find something to supplement the years. So of like let's if you can do and somewhat some guy was like I run a website where I make videos with feed your face and body does not have to be in it but you know. People will watch it for your feet and he's inside Emailed him any responding here's an example of the videos and it was him like Ted or like some dude. Like a very shortly man kind of rolling around in wrestling with women's feet in like putting them on his face and I was like. Is this like our our people actually watching her just for. Ted Like No. Being like. Upload Sure Knock Definitely, upload in. WHO's watching this? I can't wait to see the next adventure Ted's going on with these like he was mostly, it was mostly him in the video and the feet were happened to be. There was I don't think that's right. I don't think that's what people want. So I just didn't respond the foot fetish industry is so straight spoiler. Like I'm going to be the star, your feet are going to be like the CO star like. I'm GonNa put you in some open toe socks and. Play with them for now. Just trying to get people to let him play with a fee I. think that's what that was. Yeah. Yeah. PIMP. When you're doing footwork 'cause you could just do that at home. I can be an entrepreneur I just put my feet in the camera. Have, a live feeder whatever and then people pay I think I know that now I didn't know that then right what year was that technology was probably yeah. That was probably two, thousand, nine, ten I feel like that's when people started just getting Internet famous right like my space was over but and then people starting to move to you too. But it wasn't like, yeah that was like the boom of the Youtube people, right? Right. I wish I had got in on that. I could have just been on the Internet aloe scratching my ass I'D BE A. Millionaire by now. Yeah. Although it seems like all who are super famous in the beginning with Youtube are getting called out for all the crazy shit. They've been doing for the last ten years and being like, Oh, I guess that was racist when I dressed up like a Muslim woman and ran through the streets. You know like like like shame Dawson who was doing black face and not even funny black face could able to do black bass can you at least be Robert Downey junior in Tropic Thunder? We'd never canceled him because it was Holler because it. And he was aware that was part of joke. But yeah, there's people who. Were not well equipped with the information on why that would or would not be funny and random muck. Yeah. He got attacked by Will Smith's family too because of that poster where he was pretending to jack off to the baby willow, the Oh don't fuck with the smiths now and. Let him go to the table he ain't get close today. You are not invited to the table change like please let me come to the table Jada clean the table I'll do whatever you need me to do. Yeah I, can't believe they thought it was a good idea like if you go to the Queen Collection, you're like Yay this is it your Alabama like something come on now? You're already wrong if you're purchasing stuff that doesn't match your skin like you're just. You know right step one. If you are down in deep brown in Deep Tan of the Bobby Brown action is probably you probably have to do something. Wrong. There was did you watch American mean it's it was on Netflix's lake talking about the like the viner's and the people getting famous the Internet. I think the fat Jewish was in there in. Paris. Hilton and there was one girl. who was like big on vine and she was starting about her downfall i. mean she's still very famous. She was like, yeah. All these people got more famous. She's like people call me races in his like I didn't get didn't get it because like they don't have a sense of humor and then they cut to a video where she's like. She liked drew like a one, a unit brow like made her skin dark. Like. Around I guess he was trying to be a New York Cabbie. I don't know but it was just like just like had a horrible Arab accent and I was like Oh girl Oh of course without year racist she does not like people are being too sensitive. It's okay. But look at your content choose that people are being too sensitive. They cut to her in the clan row. I don't get it business comedy. How Tie News what know what? Girl What are you doing? Yes. To soft. Well. Let's talk first segment after a good healthy dose of Fun Racism. We exit light This is what's hot and fraud. So I'm GonNa tell our listeners they write in they snitch on their friends on their family on themselves as always guys scam got his potted Jima Dot Com snitch on everyone you know but to leave out the details, make sure it's a retired con unless you wanNA share with the community. So this one seems like. What okay. What does he want me to call him give me your name. She's here. Jeremy Jeremy Okay so Jeremy wrote in and he says. Oh it does. He want to be named James. You've gotta put that up top I'm calling you dear so. Jeremy says one year I went to work at Yellowstone National Park the company that provides hospitality there is called Zen terra everyone lasts x that sounds like a birth control pill and we started seeing Thira. On my problems. Right, so they also provide hospitality for other national parks across the country. I left a week before I was scheduled to start working and called Mount Rushmore to get a free room as I was passing through. They provided a free employee room for a couple of days if you WANNA stay for free at a national park sign up to work at a different park call for a room this on the way bring the employee contract and when you're done called employer at ten of you ain't Goin' com. Say Saris something came up and I can't work here this season. Hope to work in the future. Good luck a godless. Thank you. Yeah. That's good. I. Like that and every national parks our government, Sunday Yeah, they're fine. You know if you know we anti-government over here like the. Fine, the trees take advantage. Yes the. A lot they'll be flying I do because it's something I would have never thought of because I. Guess. I guess I didn't even know you could stay at a national park neither did I. Rooms to stay in jammies definitely white. They have Intel that we don't get. There like. The outdoors are mine. I can just go anywhere. Right. We're too busy worried about racism like trying not to get pulled over there like where can I stay in the mountains? So. MUCH TIME NOT WORRIED ABOUT RACISM So that's the real scam right there I need to get my free time bag. Now Racism. But yeah. So I guess you can just do I wanNA know if this works if anybody tries to let me know but I didn't know that you volunteered to work at a park or season. Yeah I didn't either that. Sounds cool to feel like. Not Working. You get to be in a park if you can't takes much right probably is probably not a lot of money. But what did you clean up trash like this and then you could hang out in the park right? I guess you give tours and Shit. Probably Yeah Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I. Guess because what did he say that it was? Volunteer or did he say? Okay. So I, think it does pay because he says employees. Yeah. So. That could be a nice. Eat pray love moment guys. The whole winter not doing anything right cover yourself in a national park when I finally evolved into being a white woman which will have. that's my ultimate scam is will be regarded as a white woman one day. If anything mildly inconvenient happens to me I just run off to a park for a while. Yeah I think it's a great idea. Deserves also like and there's like it's not high traffic you can just like get away but still be in America. It's. It's interesting. How many beautiful parks we have I feel dump saying this but it's like we have so many beautiful parts in America. But like. I don't know. I guess is just easier to stay in your little bubble and be like this is my city is my town the night like pass through Utah and been like Oh my God this is Utah Is. It's okay. This is beautiful and it's just been here the whole time. That's actually you know as you say that, I'm very culpable of that 'cause I will travel, but it's mostly because my friends want to travel. So I'm like, okay we'll pick the place Tell me where to bring my body to whenever I go I'm like Oh damn like mountains and trees yeah oh well. Yeah. Yeah I feel like whenever I go vacation I'm inclined pick the beach lake. We're going to an island somewhere, but there's also a great lakes and. Greenery here that I've just been missing and is also cheaper to go because in America Ri-. I. This is very embarrassing Alvin California. Any NAH in probably the same area for four years I just started hiking at. Griffith. Park like three weeks ago. Was My first time going there I had gone to the observatory excellent I. Didn't know that the park was so cute. I was just going to ring in. Acute moment for a photo op I didn't know Griffith Beautiful. Now I haven't done it either been for two years, but I just don't like being hot. I just don't want to be in the. Fair. I go around five in Griffith has more trees in the beginning and stuff run into straight up hot ask signed and Yeah I don't want that and celebrities. That's why people are going. For the sun and the celebrities. About wearing a mask though and then nobody will know you're famous, they will know your made it from. SNL. So go to those parks. Yeah Oh can be like a vigilante. Talking to crime that's. I thanks people wouldn't bother us. Know I will now take take the streets are mine. I robbed by a woman who definitely wasn't this movie I saw. The week I could see her face, but the silhouette looks similar. Hair looks voice was the save. The weekend. And she took my wallet. checkouts this year dot com and I was like I think this is related. But really love her and also I'm. A. We're GONNA take a quick non-scheme advertisements. We'll be right back. Already and we are back and now it's time for historic. Hoodwink regale cheer with a historic hoodwink her thoughts and opinions throughout Today's scam comes from a man named garrison courtney which one a name. He was a fake CIA operative and he scammed people out of four point. One are seen four point four, million dollars. A lot of money. So you did it was before he worked at the DA he served as a spokesman for the Republican Congresswoman Katherine Harris Shocker, people in the Republican. Party being scammers what. I'm apple actually all happening for the end of time is very true. Doesn't matter what? Oh God side you're on. So Courtney was a spokesman and that's garrison and last name is courtney. So Tom Courtney from here on garrison and called garrison. Long Day Courtney was a spokesman for the DA from two thousand, five to two, thousand and nine and the scam began three years. Later he presented himself as another person identified as individual a CIA operative and so I guess he would just showing up and be like, Hey, I'm individual aid. he shouldn't tell people you're a C. I. A. Operative. Like not always cool because I tell you my name. Yeah Individual Hey and they're like, okay I still see your face. Right this isn't during mask-wearing times. This is two thousand five. So he's fully face out here. So. He actually applied to be a operative in two thousand and five and received a conditional offer, but the offer eventually laps. So I guess he had the offer and then in two thousand, six, hundred expired just get the job. Yeah, he's not going to be a good spy if he's letting you procrastinating on signing up. Please come and he's like I. I'm busy like what are you doing? Isn't that sounds like that's your job your dream job right? Welcome to the CIA. He said, let me give Xia. Jury duty. So we'll maybe it's that he realized that he could probably be more successful if you just pretended to be in. which seems to be accurate. Yeah. Yeah absolutely. So he duped multiple public officials including senior military members by telling them that they had been selected to participate in a classified CIA program and needed the companies to place them on their payrolls to hide their affiliation with the spy agency. So you come up to you but was up a sergeant. He as many individual A. I'm going to put me on your payroll. 'cause I would hope that the military officials would do more research before they were like, yeah. That makes sense like you can figure that out. Right but the government so wasteful with spending. Especially, if you're talking about the military sector, we always got money for guns America so tracks usually it's usually America's like go home girl who you gave three hundred dollars because she says, she was in a bind and then the next time you see her she gucci's lives and you like where what did you get those? Where's my? She asked for more money right and it's like we have money for slides. We don't have money for you to give you. Right that's America. Bitch can't stand. So He would just say you are now going to be a spat like the spy who shagged me you don't know what I'm referring to do you. anyways. Austin. Powers thing. Oh that's individual as secret spy freeing. Oh. Yes. Yes. You GotTa ask put me on. This makes sense. So. Prosecutors said the approached businesses and claim that they so-called. He was like a task force right He was working on something that was created by officials at the highest levels of the federal government his task force included the president of the United States the Attorney General. So He's at the director of national defense was involved in this the Under Secretary of defense for Intelligence and administrative administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Okay. So everybody he was like. Livia. Pope be six thirteen huck. Viola. Davis analyst. Skating. Aren't real. So yeah. So, this is what he did with the power. The story behind the nonexistent program change from time to time. So sometimes, he would be like, yes, analyst works for US other days. He'd be like not just George Bush sometimes told victims at the program supported a covert Special Operation in Africa other times he explained that its mission was to enhance intelligence gathering capabilities in response to a former contractor leaking. Okay. I'm tired reading this. So Important Gordy lied about his background and went so far as to make them sign fake nondisclosure agreements barring them from discussing what he claimed was classified information. So basically he scammed you be like some scientists India does so you can't tell nobody else cam. Right, right or smart. It's very smart. Honestly, wish I had thought of it. Can I still do it? I would love to anyone can make an NDA right? I'll Anita's printer paper. Yes. So created phony documents to show companies that they had been awarded contracts with various federal agencies in exchange for their assistance because of his former ties with the government and knowledge of the system, he was granted access to meet with the victims and facilities known as S CIF's at an SAF is a sensitive compartment information facility in an enclosed area within a building that's used to process sensitive compartment info. Okay. So basically. He still for some reason, his key card worked like the bunker. Yeah He was getting sensitive information. Yes. So he had access to this place that was like a secret away that was used by the government legitimately. And so he was bringing his homegirl there. Like, you'll, you'll never guess. Is Cute little bunker I can show you no one else has access to it. That would make me feel legit if you took me till like a cute little like a little be sixteen thirteen bunker like scandal that would make me sign over I it. Okay. Where's the today? It puts you on the payroll absolutely. Yeah. You seem real. This is legit. So Courtney told some victims they were under surveillance by foreign intelligence agencies and would search them for electronic devices and when his credibility was called into question because they were like, why are you searching me with? He's got like one of those beach metal detectors. Like why is it? I phone. I don't think it's doing anything audience it is. Oh that's excellent. I hope it was just as iphone and people like sorry, this bills wrong. So then If, they would accuse him of being shady. He would accuse that person of being a spy for foreign powers. Basically, just how did that work? I'm not. I'm not lying. You're a spy is like what you've been surveilling this person sir. So vote right for a long time. You should know there's fire not. I feel like this is like the worst gas lighting like how you some Lagasse or this feels uncomfortable like you want comfortable and also. Spy. Telling the government. I'm telling the Black, man for twenty four all about. Wasn't ever really the President Like how all your references or just from TV shows. You know who are real president is right yeah. Morgan Freeman break. The man from allstate commercials. No, he's also the man from twenty four. Okay I take it back. That's what I meant. So Courtney also arranged for his adult son to be hired by to the victim companies even though he was unqualified. So in addition to getting himself on the payroll companies, he was also my son is. I don't like the he got his son involved the nepotism. I mean. All the time but I just feel bad I, mean, maybe this a scam or two, but I just feel it feels like unwittingly setting your son up to be to get into serious trouble later down the line that's true I guess. But what if his son didn't know you know nepotism happens all the time. So what if he was just like son you got a job where now you? have job maybe hopefully I just don't want him to be complicit to a serious crime. Yeah. That's true. You're right there could be a bad side to this I. Hope The Sunday no but this guy seems like a little shady. So and also I'm guessing if I was the son and my dad was like, Hey, I got you a job as a defense contractor and like I majored in poetry. Something seems off. This. But I don't know entitlement white entitlement. You might think you did astrium so. Hey would you do So aside, scam this side scam that he was running while doing other scams while the CIA scam was going on according to manage to get a job as a contractor with a branch of the National Institute of Health that assists other federal agencies. In that role, he had access to sensitive non public information and was able to steer contracts towards companies where he was on the payroll oh my gosh. So. First of all, you're a workaholic courtney. This this is ally was a lot got baby them jobs. Uncle Sam is definitely go catch. You can have as many W. twos. This is like the same energy when someone has multiple families where you just like you try to like hide everyone from everyone else and you're like I had a weekend trip and it's like what by in this family only has? Three days. But. They live on the same story. Yes families. All the kids of the same name like. Semester keep track of it is that is fun. That's a smart way though this name, all your illegitimate kids, the same names as your other kids. Boys Brian. Brian. Is Gina. The girl is other Brian Everybody's. Don't have enough bandwidth for anything else yeah. Just Brian. Please Brian One two, three, you like data. There's only two of us here. In Lyon three Oh, I was thinking about getting a dog. Oh my gosh. So he had the sites game where he worked at a legitimate business, I sir. So obviously, this goes to trial the scheme lasted from twenty twelve until at least twenty, sixteen, Garissa me pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud during a hearing in federal court in. Virginia. He faces up to twenty years in prison at his sentencing is in. October. So this is still going on we don't know how long it's going to be in the clink and he must pay full restitution to the twelve unidentified companies as a part of his plea. Do now I love how the companies were like don't put my name in there. That because bears ING, they're coming to trial in masks. It's not for social distancing they're coming ski masks. You know that I fell for this. They have to be companies that we know. Absolutely I want somebody out. Yeah I'm sure there's away. When they go through the trial have to make public. Because I'll have to testify you're right in the maybe if there's a jury, it's GonNa come out we're gonNA know who the Anthonys, our guys keep the my ear to the ground on this because everything always comes out like I remember remember when at the Oscars, they switched moonlight in La La land. Yeah I know who did that? Bug I the Guy He. USED TO I can't say too much because I don't want you guys to figure out who this is but used to perform with him and one day it. One of my other friends whispered to me he was like you know this his dad right and I was like owner makes so much sense and now I fully believed that it was an accident and it really wasn't an intentional thing to try to give La La land they award or to steal anything from you might cause knowing this guy son like how he is I was like, oh. This is a man who was just genuinely excited made a mistake. God but I mean. Was, a huge mistake Barry very public mistake, and that's why he tried to keep hidden. They were like it's brought shame on our family they're like living pepper nine. I can't say anything else. But yes so I think this come to light that will figure this out. Yeah. I'm excited. Yeah. So. The US Attorney's office says that they won't comment on whether individual AAC could face charges or if the person who was cooperating. Okay. So basically, he's saying like the US Attorney's office right now saying if you were cooperating with Courtney, we're not sure if we're going to press charges on yet because maybe he really did think he wasn't scandal. Yeah and maybe he really did think this was legit. So. I, hope that the marks don't get charged. Yeah, they were taken advantage of. But also like did you ever talk to anybody about this deep cover operation you're yes, s new drinking buddies. Military Friends Billy signed an NDA couldn't. Buddy honors those you just tell somebody don't tell nobody coach. We all have one friend breaking in for. Absolutely yes. I tell Nicole everything. Yes. Tight lipped. So that's that's a good. A person to have. We'll I'm sure your relationship. I'm talking specifically about this. Now, any other capacity we all love to gossip. Oh yes. Absolutely. Yes. Okay. Guys. We'll. We'll be right back for the the sad in of the show after these non scam advertisements. As. I'll. Right. This is the saddest part. Because this is when I have to let sheer go and I don't want to do that but this has been so funny been so lovely. Yes is very fun I turned to my fake NPR voice. This has been so fun. All lovely.

Oh i don't know how a when i figured out but my well first of all my dad's a drifter so that's the original scammers trip there. What do you mean a drifter is pretty much just a homeless person on the go it. Is somebody just ghost town town and gets whatever you can. That's sexual him. he's like now. I live here. Yes oh that's how i was born actual one of my friends actual and i was like you live anywhere. Do you live with women. Oh my dad barely ever let it was living with a bachelor like the man. Got a two door car. While i was growing up. That's kind of person you and we. You got kids your sayings kids keys. He was like a scene gideon sometimes but maybe never say two-door oldsmobile cutlass. Supreme would wear his tracksuits in it and not and not a single child could fit in your dead week. I'm sure that goes a lot of problems. Trauma ever might him for your fly miss because yes that all sounds very fly to me. A cutlass tracksuits car. Even though you got six kids he was. Y'all got to get into the actually three beyond. We did this. One will bashar that. Call my father He definitely raise a bunch of And schemers and i i actually even at one point took embezzled money at my own mother's account. Yes amtrak eight hundred fifty dollars out. I walked in with just her deposit. Check her force signature. Will eight fifty. I was it was like nine hundred ninety nine. That was that was like eight fifty. Leave my well. here's the thing. Is that back then. They don't just notify you. I just went in with the deposit slip with no withdrawal slip and fortune name for the letter. They didn't even call nobody. They trusted my little black acid. I was like how else. And ever. Since then i was like you. You scam as much as you can until you anyway. Fifty four i ran away los angeles and star star honey amongst. Yeah that's worth it. Honestly your momma should give as testimony twenty years later. I did move back home. Solomon no okay listen. My mom is like this. It's kind of weird with my mom. 'cause my mom could also have been a cult leader. She's so smart. She gives me so many clothes. She could write so many books she has. She's been published. He's genius as she's also just like it's like i love her but a muscle afraid. 'cause she's a strong mama and i remember when i was a kid. I stole money. Like change out of her purse. The bottom of her purse because my friend in quotes scammed me and told me she had money for lunch money. And i was like. I've always been a generous host. So i was like. Oh let me help you turn out this beach. She's wanted to money. She scare me but my as well one time because my mom masami stood out of her couldn't even come up with nothing. I think i was like. I'm looking for chatty scammer. My mom's scam has more jobs than any jamaican has ever had. My mom used to sing background for kirk franklin. She i love her. I've had like before doing this. I had like seventy jobs a the huskies spirit. You're giving me that energy and it's like giving me life right now. She used to work at a dairy queen and they would have chilly fridays. Which is honestly. This is a franchise right chilly fridays. When my mom would just make chili that she just made it wasn't nobody say yes the dairy than just free stop selling. I like this eight queen bro. So yes yes. I'm on the same wave as you. But also i love that the bank. Just let you ride. Oh i and it's not even that was just the first time the ultimate time. This is the one that will never i. I worked for an office supply chain store that will not say by name because i do not want to be sued limitations redacted redacted we live or redacted but i may or may not have at one point in time done bookkeeping for a place that had the cashiers. Were very terrible out counting their money than it was consistently over. So i just off the top of the course of six months and may or may or may have not made five thousand dollars. Oh my god solomon. I know your gene bookkeeping was over every month. You know what. I believe this money now and it was your money and hundred percent. That's the thing anyone who works in a corporate setting that doesn't steal. what are you doing. what are you doing. Listen corporations are the fucking devil especially in a miracle because them so many tax breaks. We give them so many allowances. They kill people literally. If you want to become a billionaire you have to kill people indirectly or directly. It's just what it is. I talked about just us all the time with amazon. Because bre there are by like apple michou guys like if you were gonna corporation if you clocking in nine to five your great cubicle. And you work in type in Potato salad for lunch steelers. Stapler you working for the ultimate thieves and all the post it notes from them and also the thing is if you work in customer service where corporation let customers get away with shit. That is why. That's why i'm like when i call customer service. You are in for an ordeal. I am not backing away from jack. Got a free iphone. That i crack myself. That's that's the kind of person you're going to get when you get on the phone. Let's jobs from the great like first of all. Why are you trying to defend this one dollar phone that you can easily replace. Let me talk to the person that you're in charge of you. Listen i joke about cairns on this show so much but let me speak to the manager. Me changing lives one. Be nice to your customer service person because when you're in customer service all their job is to hear people mad at them so if you're nicer to them it helps you a lot if you ask. Because they're dumb. If you start like this negative you can just be like. Let's speak to your manager. I was in london. And i was working in london at the time. And bank of america's a raggedy bitch that will shut your credit card. And your they'd be like oh you at a gas station. It's twelve miles from your house. We thought that wasn't shoe. You don't like beef jerky right. We shut your car. And so i was in london called them nicholas thirty four fifty seven times and was like hey. I'm in london for three months. Come on yeah. I go to a atm randomly in leicester square and it shuts off. And at the time. I was twenty so like i. I was young. I didn't know how to get other money and a copy of america and they were like. Oh says we're not going to be able to reactivate your car for a few days. 'cause we gotta do. Some bump obama and i was like the first time. Let me speak to your manager. And the manager got my card activated immediately. Yes that's all. Here's the thing. Is that every time. Like i think they definitely set certain rules for that person. The lower ranks. And i'm like. I know you can't do nothin' but i know there's five motherfuckers down. Do some shit so let's not waste time with each other. Bring to the next person. I don't even. I don't even depending on the issue. I barely talked to the first person. Let me speak to your supervisor to your supervisor. Let me smith l. We'll talk to the regional manager. I will get to the coo. If i have to. But i'm gonna get what i want. Yes let me speak to the cane of bank of america. Put back on the phone. That's his name right bank in in his last night. Miracle which you gotta do is keep going up to the chain of command where somebody's getting paid so much money that they rather just give you what you want than even be bothered. He has a protecting them like virgo. I'm gonna change virgo. 'cause gano iphone john on twitter they have scammers on there. I guess is the random scam tip. But i'm getting stir crazy and tired of being home and you want to go somewhere and maybe you do it safely quote unquote by being at a house and whatever virgo has a bunch of people on that site who have photos of places that are really nice that they don't own because virgo when you pay for something they get the money pretty quickly and then if it's a scam they like it's too much. It's too much time between when virgo can retract the money so that you can make off with some shit so just so you know if you gone virgo and you see a house. It's nice and there's no review do not book it especially if it's recent if you see it's like oh new place and it's posted like two or three days after her before you're looking to not book it because those people are scammers and they don't own those houses had on me and i had three thousand dollars tied up for a damn. Yeah see this is why. I don't try new things. I just think. Check out this new album like let me let me let me hear this out. Don't try new things. That's the lesson i let your friends do it. I i love it almost always like. Would you jump off a bridge your fresh too. I was like yes they jump. I and i looked and it was too. They was alive like my friends have been decoys for so many things. Then the jump off the bridge house. The water okay. I'm actually walk down the stairs tales. I'll see out. We are get out. So let's get into it. I love this has been like a fifteen minutes walk intro ever had because i you give me energy of one of my cousins so i just feel like very familiar with you. I'm enjoying this. That's why i've listened to the podcast. When it was scheduled. I was like do this. Listen we talking on my short where to god solomon. You're the first person i hit. And i was sitting there waiting like hope disney. Yes i don't know and then we did excited. So let's get into it. I part of the podcasts. What's hot and fraud So today so it was on friday. Normally you guys know and if you don't know if you're new we talk about a scam this pop in that. We want to warn you about or we've read listen to letter but today this is going to be a wild of different episode because honey at tall. I'm dying so today. Hud fried is going to be a news alert. That's a that question mark. I blame part of the corona virus deniers on the fact that since nine. Eleven wayne sweeps were through the roof and newscasters were getting awards for crying on live television in the news realized. Oh if we extra scary mixed on what those. This has been like my dad night. More at eleven. Edison trained a lot of people to be like okay. Well we didn't tonight. Why should we listen to the news. So i know that people say coronavirus is a real. But when i tell you i've had so many family members pass like israel so tangent. Oh i can. I get it back. Rotavirus israel. i think that's to be the main takeaway from is not a scam. Listen i thought. It was mcginnis cardi b. Said that video and this somebody made into a song. Corona genus sheet is getting real and little. Did we know morgan freeman. Voice should do and shit got real. So oh yeah. I know i said that because what we're talking about and fraud is a pop incur virus scam that i love also so much. They're my best friends so a single family house on fourth avenue in euclid ohio. A suburb of cleveland. cleveland cleveland. Rocks i how shows no signs of farming activity. You understand the only things growing on this one. Eighth acre plot are trees shrubs ingress but twenty companies registered at that address with names like organic ohio berry's llc and garlic farming llc have won government approval for loans and grants intended to support small businesses hurt by the coronavirus pandemic. Ooh y'all give hot on. Listen jealous. I have a plan. I have wondered implant in my house. So i'm a farmer former is what we like grow plan. How and no one's gonna check. Euclid go twenty muses same address here you go. That is amazing. And all the owner of the force view home in his family members created seventy two companies with labral. Gary sounding names at three cleveland area addresses. Then use them to get approval with loans for grants totaling seven point two million dollars from the small business administration economy injury disaster loan program state and federal records show. There's no sign of agriculture activity at any of the locations. Which is hilarious on like this. Drive by arby's news farben plant. Not a secular rate is happening here. We planned attractor defies. Small farm really. What does that. Even mean. Scarecrow matt a pumpkin in the front yard. It is just. I just feel like if you walk in the door. There's a tumbleweed blows head. Twelve hours we see not a we. Does it empty house with twelve hour. Figure sernet you. So there's no sign of agriculture activity at the locations or that any companies were active before february first wire for the pin a none of them were registered by the. Oh hi oh secretary. State's office before may so they knew this then well. They didn't know what happened. Was is everyone who was applying for the a just got oughta medically approved and then seven point. Two million dollars went away and they were like wait. A minute feel. I feel like there were so many holes in the scam that it is not the scammers fault by any means. They should be charged. Listen to take out seven. Did well if you are out of magically approving loans instead of doing the minimal amount of research they said. Listen i understand i have fibroids. I can't read these loans. Like i'm tired. No i know that somebody type in the same address. Seventy two times didn't even thinking about it once. Honestly like these scammers are my favorite people because the audacity if you just done. I don't know four one. Ten was like nah seventy to go big guaranteed. They didn't think it was going to work balance times and then when it did they were like there's no way to okay was. There's no way i can be this stupid. You heard your dome my god. Donald trump wouldn't be president of our government was off. He would be president. And you wouldn't be watching debates on television. Remind you america's the most neutral country destroy your family foot on your meg asks country of the world and they asked donald trump and debate. If you smells so that. That's my favorite like everybody. Well i don't know if he's going to do what what he say. You don't have to worry about. That guy knows toys were like saw loss. And are you willing to grant bitch the even pull out the damn house. We just pullover over for a side. Note that i was reading about the trump administration because people have been begging me to do like a whole trump episode because i did one about how he was stealing money from cancer children. But there's so much more. And so i was like Reading it and there was a part in article that was like well. Trump's people who work for him really like him history name. He's like he's so nice and his hairdressers life. I've been with him for fifteen years and he's wonderful and i'm like this raggedy ass hairstyle they've teen years that's the thing is that he is a scammer but he also the ultimate patsy no easy. He's a he's a the easiest mark like this full scan but he got scammed worse than i can't okay so wrap up this whole seven million dollar fake family farm situation. A lawyer for that family said that. Okay yeah we have scam. Basically but we repaid most of the loans shrink did they pay back the loans with the loan because that'd be even better. That would be amazing. Be fantastic so the loans are the latest sign of the mismanagement of sba's two hundred and twelve billion dollar disaster relief program which agencies and inspector general warranted july was beset by potentially rampant fraud. So i just want to say when. I saw this article in the news. I i saw it on twitter then. I do deeper dive but on twitter. There are a lot of comments that were like. I tried to get a loan. And i got denied or i. I didn't know like people doing this. Felt bad for the people who really needed the money however the scammers also really needed the money. If you go into scamming you need coin. Well first of all. When i heard that they lived in euclid ohio. I'm like hands down. You need you need money to fuck out of there. Because i don't know i could in solid that. He pulled his jacket. You gotta get out of there. Afraid fully glenn ohio. What's happening there but seems it. Sounds like it sounds like the city somebody would leave to join a cult. That's absolutely yes. They would be like. Okay i'll give you money every week and then we kiss on the lips. Yeah i'm describing nexium like they will do it so guys. I don't even know what the warning is here for this because like honestly scam the government. Fuck them you got one twelve hundred dollar loan this entire night even loan but like this entire stimulus whatever this entire endemic and we've been a pandemic for like over six months. Yeah right bre. How much money has uncle sam. How many times have you walked. Job like damn. It was a good day. Then uncle sam reaching your pocket was like for me. How much shakedowns.

I can against seventy two ocean waters like verse scammer family so we got a coupon scammer. Yes and honestly. I love this because remember those ultimate couponing shows just a hoarders who get hard rock hard on getting coupon discounts. This is the same shit. But it's it's more fun because those people were terrified. Oh my god. I love the so much. There's more to this story but we unfortunately are going to run out of time. So i'm going to just stop it there but i'm going to read the rest of the store another episode. I promise you guys but we'll take a quick break. We'll come back with some non scam advertise all right and we are big wu. This is the saddest part of the episode. Because this is where. I'm soon going to have to let them go. And i don't wanna let him go. I want to grab him through my computer. And it's just it's been wonderful Here we go scammer of the week. This is where we highlight a charlatan who we love or hey sometimes we hate him. I find out during that. Dance the trash. This one i feel like is actually full. So i'll let's let's let us judge. Let us i loved. Solomon you're going to be a judge on. Tv shows give energy in comedy. But you do give like elevation lay. Should be judging people. I really i bring the best out of people. I don't want to but they do try hard around me. Wait what's your birthday. is that route. Because that's what i wanted to capricorn. Oh you're giving huge leo energy. I have no idea what that means birthday time. And i'm gonna figure chart. Good luck. Because i was born in a refugee camp and my mom i remember what time that they brought. The guns out like mom time was born bitches. Be happy you alive you right right. Can i know i was born at two eighteen. Pm on july fourteen way. Christmas and it was still a hot day. That's okay potato salads. I mean this is like ooh i was i will baby. They thought they was gonna turn up. And i was like no going to turn up as well. We bring the potato salad to the hospital up the week. Jesus lord scheduled the week is a woman who allegedly got sprinkled. Some allegedly allegedly but a news article charged to wbrc which sounds vague. But it is a place. Yeah that's around. The corner of news was like oh homeboy and they just came out on. The block was like so today. News from my apartment is just trust moves people. We'd be like oh year they said it so is true that these people they have to research we can't just and they just showed up a guest on what's happening today. Hey i'm from news. I'll congregating from the news. So i just took a walk around the block. So here's today's news. Industries can't be set up like you don't wear entrepreneurs technically you're so talented you do podcasts. You do comedy do all the shit right and you started that shit up yourself your genius but like you couldn't just entrepreneurially get into news. First of all. I think you can. I think people have no one. I know that has a journalist. Journalism degree is on the news. So i don't know if they're like. I'm going to cosmetology school now. We're like more at eleven. A real college truly real friend. Her name was chelsea chelsea fucking girl. We did acting school in pittsburgh and we used to be because we had this crazy aspects teacher who. I won't say her name because i was going to. She would have us doing this exercise before we started. Play rehearsal that we're like okay now. We're all humping the floor and we'll bring the floor and we're moaning nasty you didn't you didn't remember nothing back then shunted also acting scam but also very good. I learned from the best. So so a new hampshire woman is accused of pretending to be a prosecutor and submitting paperwork dropping stalking and drug charges against herself. According to an indictment handed down this month. Wait a minute against herself. Yeah she was like oh. Hey i'm the prosecutor. For my case i she wrestled. I mean. drop all the charges against me. I'm excuse me this is her name. Is lisa landon. Which name his you hear the same start. Like that's that's probably rob me rob me already. I don't have my wallet. What happened leased land at thirty three was arrested after she allegedly Submitted false documents in three separate cases december under the guise of a prosecutor in some instances she even used electronic court system to file documents. Okay okay now officials. I became like suspicious when a state forensic examiner who was scheduled to evaluate Competency for the trial notice that her charges had been dropped and question if they should move forward with the evaluations. It's somebody shot him was like. Hey i'm here for the app and it was like she not in the system. No more are we doing this. God so the indictment also says that landon falsified a decision from a retired new hampshire supreme court judge and waved filing fees. 'cause she was also like it also. We came out charge her. I mean i mean actually. I love all of this is layered. It's all first of all. You're you're the only cheese. The judge the jury the prosecutor. The victim took me hurt me a lot. I need money. i wanna watch this one. Play to play every part to have the civil case like hey also i need money from me or legally. We didn't charge me. I just just want anti courtroom sitting in every position going back and forth. We sustain room is hard. Jesus residents take a nap. Whatever you guys league so she faces charges now falls personalisation because obviously she falls pregnant herself a lot all the time. She was like false person nation. That's what i do. I never been me. I'm always i love it. Simple six charges of falsifying physical evidence. Now i do want to say. She's also accused of filing an order on behalf of a relative to halt guardianship proceedings involving her child. And that for me. Like i think that the opposite talked time. Scams people are desperate. They need things like you. Don't want to maybe get taken away. So i understand fully putting on a powdered wig and pretending to be a drudge to keep you baby. I get it. Don't work will listen. I get it but also you'll family was like you shouldn't have this baby and also you was impersonated everybody. You probably shouldn't be like the baby's. I'm glad to go rescue beyond. I'm sure the baby. I've had a child is being cared for at least landon. Wow this is a queen. Ran it saying that shit was like we never seen anybody run this fast guy. An our like honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if she wrote that article more porta her. Then so jesus solomon towards this subset has been tastic. Check be out. God want to be found. That's we ask them. The shows any place you want to be. I'm across the board. Solomon giorgio on twitter on my website at my album everything you can find me.

Seems like a very lucrative business. Shit we just handle dass. It sounds like my dream jobs away. What's your relationship scams okay. Can you clarify that question. So it could be anything. That's why it's hella vague. Like do you feel like you like scammers. Do you not like scammers. Have you ever been scammed. You know about any scams right now that are like and tip of your tongue will. I'm curious first off when you ask people that question. Do most people say they like skims or that they have been scammed. It varies i do. I will spend like most of the podcast trying to convince you to like scams. People are like yeah scammer. sometimes people like mark. I'm very sensitive. I've been scam so many times. Or they're like i hate scammers. They're bad people. I love anything anything. Okay great because i was going to say i think i seem like a mark like i think you're looking at me. You know very kind face. Like if i needed directions i will walk up to you thank you. I never know where i'm going. I never know where the same but i do. Have this face and this personality. And this being i guess maybe i am mark. Maybe this is my way. You don't scare me that advertisers as mark scammers. Listen i don't consider myself a marketing scam. Everybody everybody plays the mark. Sometimes i mean you don't really have a choice like people have set out to scam you so it's one of those things where it's like. I can't control what other people do. I can barely control what i do. You know what i mean. He's actually but i like i was a carney. Does that count as important carney. Yes the we've been a whole trap. That's why they travel 'cause they scammers. Big to carnivals never stay in one area absolutely. But i was also a bad carney because everybody else was like you know. Oh my name's like you know animal or like my name's like Lipper something and i was like i'm deanna. Reason over i'm from detroit. Like i told everybody your name i w to to be a carney like they never my w do so. Of course they didn't 'cause. I put that shit in the trash. They said we got somebody who thinks we legit twos for her. No they definitely past my social security number on air. It's happening it's happening so someone selecting my social security right now. Yeah animal and wildfire. Y'all give me some paperwork because dion over here wanna follow the law. Yeah i loved being a carney though. I loved it it was. What did you do. So i had a game joint. A joint is what we call like a booth. That's a little thing for day. Yes yes a little something. I was not a ride jack Which is those are the people that operate You know rides for some reason. There's a rivalry between us. I don't know why. But i'm not going to step out of my lane. I'm a so you telling me you were beefing with like twelve year olds because i feel like everybody who operates a ride any amusement park strong eleven and a half no they were all hard living. Twenty-three let me tell you. Everybody looked like brad pitt. Now you know how brad pitt looks like right now. They were all like you know. I'm twenty seven. Oh yeah you're not supposed to like that. Yeah no it was tough lunchtime. The sun lot of time in the sun possibly lifetime the pen. I don't know i'm sure checking back. That hard at the carnival so you operate. What is your booth do because you know you were a scam artist because all of them boosters yet no no my booth was you pop a balloon find star you wanna prize and the prize was a was a shirt But you're never gonna win the prize because spoiler alert it was rigged so i can't legally say that it was rigged but i think in my opinion it was i mean. I don't think anything in the business that you were working was legal software though but like you say that taking the carney quarter or something about sure ringling brothers they take you to court barnum and bailey they shower. They don't have any money anymore. Sure though they sure don't damn i feel for them so wait when when the t-shirt game was rigged. Was it a ringing situation where it's just set up where you in the back. Like fucking with a lever every time somebody drive the people. It's the funny okay. I'm not allowed to say it. Because if i do say what it was i definitely will get like jumped. The next time. I go into an alley and mckearney sees me them all your secrets. Carney secrets okay. I will say that everyone always thinks it's way more complicated than it is like. they're like. So lemme guess you switch the balloons like wow. We're popping them and you dull. the. I'm like it's really. It's not that it's it's so simple literally a six year old can do it so the easiest way you can think we got people's money that's what we did. Which is that was made. You assume that you would win. It's logical which is most scams which is most scam. So that's why. I really take credit for my psychology classes and my psychology of marketing classes. Because they really taught me how to do crat. Really take psychology classes. Did you like it. i loved it. I love getting to know what makes people operate and like how it works. Here's a little treat if you've ever being attacked somewhere. We all know about the bystander effect which is basically like everyone kind of pauses when something bad is happening in public because they think someone else is going to do something about it or no one calls the police because they think someone's already called which caught an ambulance don't don't have the police tab use invite and more danger we don't call the police so but if you are in a dangerous situation a you need help instead of crying for help if you see people around you if you don't see people start screaming but if you see people around you point to someone you help me like you please. I thought were going to say yell. Fire is what. I know you've got to be like. Hey yo nike shoe gotta get specific you have. And then they'll come and they feel more pressure to help you now. They've been called out. But if you just say help help. Everybody like well. Who will help her though. Don't do that any joy. I will tell you. The only the only reason. I feel like i don't get scammed more often is because i'm so i don't trust anything so i feel like if somebody was like you there. You woman that i've seen on my tv helped me. I'd be like it's a trap and run as fast as the other way. Well that's fair because you're black. You have to do this to white people especially white means you have to appeal to their narcissism and be like. You can help me waking. I am not going white weiqing. I don't care what's going to happen is black history month. Y'all put take that out of your ears. I never said that. I never said that. No but actually if you are in danger. I dunno try it. It might work writing from writing for the hospital. Dear lacy it did not were not liable for anything i say on here. We take you to carney and we won't be still people scored either. Yes so wait before we got the pie you were also telling me about something that could be high in fraud. That's happening out here. yeah okay. now here's a scam. That's really Chicken me off gosh. I sound like the aunt that i'm becoming but seriously it's like really kind of this is a shitty scam. Which is that people. Are they set up kind of access codes for the vaccine. We're in cova times right now. I don't wanna date your podcast. But that's our right just so you know what's happening in the world you know in case you've been under a rock. The coronavirus vaccine has come out and people are like going in and stealing. The codes met for like elders of color and using it even though they're not qualified and being like i booked appointment. Unlike if you show up to vaccine appointment in you know that you're twenty five and you are not you know one of the other six hundred black or latino senior citizens. Don't you think maybe you scammed your way here. I go home. I see. I agree with you but there. There's a small part of me. His dad that's also like look i'm in my twenties. Do and got asthma. So you know. Why can't i go up and be like ooh out my loan you. We'll use on a qualified probably in the next tier. Actually i think the cd. They said that you might possibly qualify in the next here. I'm just saying if you know you're doing no you're healthy and you know it's wrong. Stay oh stay. Don't steal from the elderly community. They've taken enough of a hit this past year and a half where basically they were told they were disposable which is so wild to me because maybe i just never had this because i grew up with my grandparents lived on a hill. Where like all my great uncles and aunts lived. And i could go to their houses and get there like. It was like hill that everyone in my family owned in east texas. What hell what hell does your family it was like. I think that like my great grandparents were sharecroppers and then they bought their land and then my grandparents like they had like my grandma eleven siblings and so they most of them. I think eight of them lived on this big stretch of land. That was like a road. You could just go up and like thanksgiving was always fun. 'cause you'd go to everybody's house and whatever their specialty was. Yeah it was like. Hey betty jo made really good desserts. And oh my god i'm so country betty jo jo gene. Wait what was your family specialty. Like at your house. Oh so the thing is. My mom is like the matriarch cook so she makes everything like when i tell you like everything. And she's like bucci so it's it's still like southern cuisine but my mom is also like put it in the williamson. Not being the roasted chestnuts and the cranberry relish. Honey i ocean spray in like twelve years. I do okay. Yeah you gotta admit. The ocean spray can is kinda great because the richest tell you where to cut. It's like a serving size. I love it. i can't do it. i'm sorry. I can't do guys i've upgraded to cranberry relish with like an orange peels zest. And they're and i'm not going back is just mashed up. Cranberry sauce from the camp. That's what it and it's delicious okay. We're gonna see base anti right now but so everyone was saying yes so i. I grew up with old people. That's why i sympathize with you know elderly people and also i realized that yeah. We're young now but we'll be old one day and under the treat me like we trio people america. It's like do they think they won't be really yeah. They don't they're like i don't know about kobe. I might not be old. I wanna make it too old right all would be tight if i could make it there but like it's just rude. How we treat our elders in america like we're so bad i wanted you old weight. I feel like you would be just like the best old lady. I hope i. Then we have so much like surgery. Advancements that i just look exactly like this but i'm like ninety. I've already started playing all the plastic surgery and going to get. I was talking to my wife about it the other day i was like i want to get this done and this done and this done and your eyes were getting bigger and bigger and bigger. At least you come in fully. Don't recognize you anymore. I'm like is really bad scam. I'm gonna say it's also a bad scam guys. Don't fuck with the elderly. But also like i don't know i've been thinking about faking a limp. I really want that vaccine. He you think olympic gonna do it. Did you hear about. Have you guys talked about the two girls from florida yet. Was it florida or was it. Are you talking about the ones who dressed up as old people to get the vaccine acitivity. I we haven't and i actually. I just thought of that too. Might as well just talk about it now but yes. There are elderly women in elderly women. They're younger women in florida. Who were pulling up to get the vaccine dressed as people take their elderly for tiktok. But they're not actually elderly. They're like thirty four and forty four. I think Yes but i'm proud of them. You know they should get the vaccine just simply because of the effort that they went out weeks they got make. We're talking production value. They probably was putting voice. Like hey baby with that needle. They hit me that what. Oh lord what is happening. Is this a preview of you was an old lady. I just become very crotchety eight. Babe stick that need limited as old people things that insure gotta drink my inshore. Oh gosh oh. Ensure tastes so pad. Oh god it's it's horrible. I drink them shits as a kid. I thought they were tasty stolen from my grandma. I feel like i used to like. I used to feel that way.

The date and the time stamp ticket was a little slip of paper inside the envelope. Well paid the forty dollars ticket on nine and now i keep that envelope and the ticket on my car so whenever i park at a pace bladder any questionable spot around town. I took the envelope under my windshield wiper. This way it looks like a already got a parking ticket that day. And i guess any meter man who sees it assumes that a person another shift ticketed me would this system. I haven't paid for parking and over a year. Hopefully no one catches on and hopefully my little parking pass stays intact a while longer. It's looking a bit rough on the edges cases. Wow wow wow. Wow wow that's a good scam right and i will say you must live in a touristy area it can't be california At least not los angeles. Because i've tried this eye. When i tell you i know everybody at the dop that i've been to buy lists bureau at one point. I had a boot on my car like three years ago. And the boot off i. I didn't have pardon around.

Maybe we don't also today guys. We're talking about something that started in june of two thousand six. When a small team of indie producers and writers constructed a fake internet persona to create the first ever web series. It was presented as an authentic delivery log on youtube. They created a sixteen year. Old girl named bree who was known as lonely girl fifteen. The series became extremely popular. But it was all fake. I know that right. I never heard of this but this is like the early two thousands. I was watching flavor of love so absolute the early two. Thousands were such a mass. Just those pointy high heels and low slung jeans yet. What an eighty s we. We saw the eighties and we sat home. Hold my four logo before the fda stepped in and said they were killing people. Did you ever have more loco. i did. I had a four loco margarita in college to let me go ahead. Make the shadow anthony. Who's one of my best friends. Who so fucking annoying. He said.

Go to every you ever gonna look at to stealing. My joke and i was like okay so anthony. Here's your moment but anthony was the guy who got all drunk in college. Sure and one time. We went to a little house gathering and one of our other home. Girls made a margarita with four logo. So it was tequila margarita. Mix four loko. What a series of choices and then to engage this knowing what was in it. What a choice. On your part i were. We like this now. Does that Cabernet how sulphites. I'll get a headache but by popoff office popping off. Give me that popol. Gosh has your headache gone away yet. From that. one marguerite in two thousand and sixties kermit. No god bless you woke up. The next just feeling refreshed god lesson. 'cause i i open a bottle of manila extract at this point and the next day. I'm like oh god. What am i drink. Kim buddha in the morning the other day and i was like why am i was like three percent alcohol. So how it started wasn't the early two thousands which is a mess of a time. You was just getting started but it was growing quickly. I wish i had made a fucking youtube in the two thousand. I could be a millionaire by now. I gotta start being an early mover early mover late adaptor because you don't know is this too much stuff. Everybody's trying to make their thing the next thing. It's too much right every guys who don't know what that means early. Movers like an economic term for people who are more inclined to purchase things as they come out like brand new. It's like the people who wait in line at the apple store to get the newest iphone right when it hits the shelves and stuff. I'm late adapter there. People who wait until all the early movers go and we see what the glitches are. We'll let you know the achey work again and then we go buy a nice way of saying smart. We're smart that's what we are. We're smart does not always good. You could have been both youtube stars. We could have been opened up boxes. i'd have a following of like millions of seven-year-olds right. Now you know a play. I don't wanna. I don't want i don't want followers like that. I cover up my pin. When i'm putting it in for my credit card in front of my wife who has the same account. I don't really want people in my life. That to be totally honest with you know at the same a cow. I'm weak you are. I like how discerning you are you say from detroit. Oh yes entry detroit to not like some people who are from like you know the suburbs like eminem like out in a posted. Have you never know. I've heard it. You think that's funny. You think we liked that you. I told you. I am becoming an aunt very quickly look. I'm very quickly becoming beyond as always to be. That looks like smack. My hands on that was like and when we go next door to actively all the pop culture all the wonderful music and lake things that have come out of got. Mowed big sean. Eminem the white stripes you chose. It's so cold in the d. So yes. I gave you that look. That's my favorite song. That ever came out of all right. It's been great. Show leaving leaving damn back into it. So miles beckett. A doctor was a millions of youtube Visitors beckett had thought how could you tell what was real what was fake on. Youtube love scammer. Once you see an opportunity yes so anyone could buy a webcam or a camera phone and upload whatever they wanted i thought it would be really cool if there was a video blogger and if you told the story just like you would on a tv show. He said then one evening at a karaoke bar away he met mesh flinders. What the kind of name is mesh flinders. Sounds like some shit you see on tv at two am when they're like have you or a loved one suffer from mesh flinders after using the weed. Whacking browder up. Roundup you maybe entitled to compensate. You never talked to know by name mesh you could say. Hey what's up. My name is mesh all right. I'll see you. I'm leaving the compensation that can't be mesh flinders. Oh gosh okay. That's gotta be like his third name so mesh meshing beckett hit it off and within a matter of days. They began writing script. They created a high school girl named bree which also grown men writing a high school girl. What did y'all know about high school girls man mesh as proved by every teenage show. Nothing right look and even if you watch shows that aren't even that old. I'm watching modern family. Which i love but there's so many jokes about the girl. Alex not having a boyfriend. That was like the running. Joke is like but you don't have a boyfriend. I was like i don't know i never cared about having a boyfriend in high school. No absolutely not. I feel like a lot of like writing for teenage girls on. Tv is like. I don't know. I guess. I let my breasts do the deciding like arrange. I'm just i just remember. When i was in high school. I cared about like classes and friends and just like normal stuff. The same thing that probably boys cared about it is. I don't know why it's just bizarre. Anyway so they write the script right. Their character breed was funny. Friendly and self-described dork. Which sorry what. that is. Every weird man's wet dreams. They love like a woman who's like really hot and nice and funny but also like doesn't have self esteem so she calls herself. You know i'm was such a dork. But then she but she looks like kate upton but she calls herself adore absolutely woman with bangs. Just say that you just wanna woman banks. That's all you want. Condom adorable so adorable. Bree videos were going like we're relatable. They were cute. She was introducing her friend daniel. And because you need a man protect you need a man in it. Otherwise yeah would watch and complaining about being home-schooled and having super religious parents I like this issue is home school so now she never has to like admit what school she ghost. I never leave my house. Hey you to to own now. This is my only outlet. Hey youtube so the character was supposed to see a happy go lucky teenager but there was also a dark side to her story. Which was that. Her parents were in a mysterious cult. Ooh actually want to watch this now. It became clear that she was pretty lonely. Which is why her username was a lonely girl. Fifteen so beckett said this is a quote from him somebody was going to create a scripted show on youtube that uses the blogger format and if they were marketing savvy they would make it feel real so there will be people talking about it. If we didn't do it then somebody else would. I love that. If we didn't rob the bank somebody else would sure you're just sitting there some in it'd be rob egging rob actively you put you put a bunch of money in one building on now somebody who's gonna take it so the business side was headed up by their friend. Greg also a man. No women involved yet. A lawyer who later became one of the show's producers his wife. Amanda who worked at a talent agency was tasked with maintaining breeze. My space page okay. So she's not giving any creative direction to this young woman. She's just updating the mice base. Remember my space. Did you have space absolutely. I did not like. I did not even have enough friends to fill up my top eight. I was like in mind. Be my top three. What a sad. My space i had. Oh my god i did. I'm running for student council on president on my space Had a top and made it rotate. Because i was chaotic. Evil do you play dnd. I want to play a character based on that based on that sentence that you just say damn i wish. I don't want to get into because i have so many friends who played india. Now i'm like i don't know do i get it. I don't know. Do you wanna be a door. Couple i do. I do have a wig with bangs. So i can put that on and yes especially i feel like there's not a ton i've learned about the discrimination indian women ton of black people in the indies. I'm like we get like a world black group of dnd people that'd be fun. That'd probably yes actually. I'm going to get a text. Jane going after this. Yes continue. that would be so lit so They had a plan and they had a webcam. They had scripts. They had everything that they needed now. They just needed the right girl for the part. So just billy was nineteen at the time she just moved to los angeles and stumbled upon the casting. Call craigslist for a project called the children of anger cove. Wow craigslist have you ever gone to a craigslist audition. Absolutely and i lived jail the tail. I've got jobs off of craigslist. I've got an furniture and boyfriends and everything else off greg list. Wow you've got a boyfriend craigslist. Yeah but that's why. I'm gay now so anyway because there are some drawbacks to getting a boyfriend on trump ex. But honestly is it a drawback like eight works for me in my flannel collection. Right i love it. I love that for you. I'm buying. I'm like i don't know maybe i stopped with them in all together. Bad side of being by no no no leave your world open is open as you want him debating bad really rolling the dice with the men so basically the role of the friend daniel that we talked about earlier went to a guy named yousef and one of the few guys auditioning that didn't look like an abercrombie model. Wow so they went with like a regular everyday looking god. They were looking for real types. Who wrote that backhanded compliment about him. In there who and nothing's ruder as an actress than when you get a casting and they give you a description in. There's something like real to quirky types. And i'm like yeah think i looked like a real human being or corky respectful also. I'm looking this guy up. This guy's cute. what are you talking about. I'm like this guy looks you know. Maybe i'm just gay. I don't know maybe i'm just. This is bad quickly trying to retract. This because i can't see him right. Really listen girl. During the pandemic david ruprecht started looking good to me from supermarket sweep with his horn khakis pricks who host. Yes if you watch all barcus we've grown up in a long time. I was like oh not wins that you saw a man. What's going on. Dr spitting right. They don't fit. That's the whole point. They're not at all. You're basically holding them up with suspenders. What's where's the fit. You gotta watch them. Walk a little bit. Listen hard time. It was a hard time for everybody. So did the guy goes on to play daniel. Daniel was meant to be kind of dorky so this worked in his favor. The original plan was to create six months. Worth of episodes. Create a buzz and then disappear into like crate like an indie blockbuster. So after a couple of weeks they had over half a million views and this is back in the early while al west as a youtube. So that's like a lot of us. The new york times started a recurring blog about her. The lonely girl. She had her own forum and hundreds of people wanted to be her friend on my space. Okay this is what my space was popping. Okay teela tequila era. So what a what. A nightmare of a human was from. Grace i registration on her show. And then yikes what a mistake. Yeah but here's the thing where your career falls off You know racist will always accept you because is just not that pop in you know. They never really have like the celebrities. They never really have like the hot girls so like could get into racism at any point in your career if is going down and they will become fans and if you ever feel like i don't wanna act no more but i want to keep these coins coming. Show up to no ma'am no ma'am no. No no no no no one or two insurrections and lying along with no no. No no i love it. So the new york times which obviously didn't do any fact checking has this recurring blog about her. She had her own forum and hundreds of people wanted to be your friend right so sue. The videos got dark. It was revealed that breathes blood type made her the target of a secretive cult card order. There was one famous video. Where bree and daniel get into a fight as daniel follows her around the room. You see in the corner of the room which you've never seen before. It's a shrine of a cult. Leader named alastair crowley who was a lunatic beckett. Said he was friends with hitler. And l ron hubbard and just like a hubbard. Excuse me when puts them respect on my king l. Ron's name one of the best cultist to ever do it. Okay how old was he. How old was he supposed to be right six. And you handle the hitler and l. ron. How are you beat as a ouija board to be friends with hitler i mean to aol. Yeah i'm also confusing. Because she's supposed to be sixteen as she has the shrine of this old man. Who was like hitler. That's a lot So basically they don't address it so he's just like this maniac from the early nineteen hundreds. He's also dead. She has shrine of him in her room. They pass over at really quickly. But you've obviously can catch it and they don't even address it. They just upload the video and within two seconds of the video every single comment is a link to a wikipedia about alister crowley and the fan base. Just went like absolutely crazy over this. I mean i also want to know what the fight was about like. I want to know what the fight was about. And it was not about this particular alter in your room right well. We've got another video that i'm gonna play for you right now. We're daniel teaches bree how to drive the to get into a fight that ends with brief vaguely saying she's honored to be a part of the order. People love affect society. A secret society. Sure and a real one as we've seen right. I hope there's some hollywood secret society. I'm going to be the secret society. I wanna cut my hand and do the blood thing with everybody ought to place my soul and everlasting life to the fa nice you know. Let me add this. it'll be fun. Let's play this video. Yeah okay. I was wrong about you. Are you really. Were a very picture. That came up on his pedia page. Very curious okay. She's like sitting on a what. Is this loading dock. Because you don't wanna say was are. You don't even know what you're doing. What are you talking about doing. Really shitty camera angles for was four. Ideal a huge. We think it's weird. When set this shit off the thank you so much for that tulsi. So basically at the end she alludes. She's a part of the society and that's what he's arguing with her about. The acting is terrible. How did anybody think this was real Because of the bra straps with the racer back leg. That's very of the era. Very very neat. This is true. Maybe you know acting has evolved a lot in the past like to years. 'cause you know back in the day people used to be on the pictures talk my bit. Everyone talks on the twentieth. The charleston like how people why i oughta can you imagine being at a funeral and the pastor just like well we've got it here today and talk about the life food mildred again. You're right. I need to know people talk like that in real life in the twenty s but in movies it was. It was absolutely ridiculous. So i guess maybe this could have seen convincing back in time. So she's obviously alluding to this cult that she's in a lonely girl. Fifteen was the first internet series to introduce product integration aka sponsors. Okay they still listen instagram girls. Who have lola girl to think. Oh wow that's what we have to blame for all those leggings advertisements. I get and fifteen and teeth. Whiteners and insta liners. That's what i call him. Byzantine sold on instagram. You can get all of that. So in one episode they feature a character eating and displaying icebreaker sours gum. Wow there's like holding it up next to her face as she takes out a piece you. I just don't understand why you don't love me. I love this icebreakers go anyway. He's love icebreakers go. I hope it's not subtle at all about the case that she's like but wait. I need icebreakers. Come to make my map. Fresh and fruity and most tutti ridiculous. That's what i need. So another example is a integrating the character from neutrogena into the storyline over a period for more than sorry the character from neutrogena. What was then neutrogena. Neutrogena man in a costume and the orange neutrogena face cleanser. He just randomly would appear places. It was natural no so the character was doctors. Fencer gilman game such a popular character. That neutrogena made him employee of the month and gave him his own email account on the company's corporate website. Wow okay it's an internet actually terrible place to be visit. Be internet as a terrible place to be all i have to say about that. It really is horrible because even if you do something bad you can make money and be famous from it. It's absolutely ridiculous. That fucking little kenosha killer. Who like went on the run fucking. I'm not even going to say his name but you know seventeen year. Old bitch never caught a seventeen year old little bitch before. But he is and he's worse but he made so much money and literally got bailed out of jail because is racist. Were like good job. It's the internet's bad bet. I don't know that. I believe that you'd never call seventeen year old fishery and honestly younger than that younger. Sometimes kids are assholes you know. Sometimes kids don't have good vibes. I've met some kids who have bad vibes and they're gonna be bad adults and also we were seventeen at one point. You know what i mean. That was yeah i was. I was really nice though as well. That's i don't think people believe. Actually i may have been nice. You know what you always. I've i will say this very briefly. you've always seemed very outgoing and very generous both with your personality and with like you know. Just a generous person. Oh thank you so have. You always have really good advice. I haven't talked to you in so long so nice to just like chat with you. Yes we'll do. Thank you for being here. But we'll we'll finish the show. I started the show right. Y'all y'all y'all there. I have no respect for people's formats. I'm like i just wanted to talk. And i love that for you and for me like i said before we started in like you said i say it all the time this scam. This is a comedy showed but we teach you something. I guess since you we used to be listed in the business section of spotify i was spotify pick of the year in twenty nineteen in the business section was no lie those my favorites gambles i am a businesswoman business so they're making coins. Neutrogena icebreaker the girls. Everyone's getting a coin off of this. This is how they got caught so after the talk of the cult ceremony fans started asking questions. Seems like a good time to ask questions. Fans began going to lonely girl. Fifteen dot com forum to discuss their theories people notice the site had been registered before bree even started posting if anything. The speculation helped the videos become even more popular in like that. Things got more intense so now all the girls on the blogs like okay. Well what about this. What about that. I do love internet. Detectives it's really trash that we've gotten to the point where internet detectives are so good that like the fbi. The literal fbi was on twitter about. Hey gall i'll al-saba it's been a little insurrection. Or whatever and the girls at the f. b. and the i went to really levy yucca. Look at these pictures. Tell us what people are at. Ms annoying to me for one major reason. The fbi is responsible for murdering so many of black people leaders and got. It need nobody to gay on and get an online or mail. Something to y'all to tell you where we was at. But now you're on the hill yet. But i am so excited for like a the capital insurrection. Right for when people get sentenced for their sentencing to include somebody holding up a screenshot saying this you. I cannot wait for that. I'm very happy about that. Affidavit i just all it this you in like everyone to pull up exhibit. See this you wind thirty five. This you Bra that was damning. Social media. really like people will tell on themselves for cloud. I was amazed amazed by how many like that really from texas yet. Oh it's so crazy. I'm like you know we can all see this right. You know that. Like screen record is now right on like what you need. You can take it down and don't matter. It's already been screen recorded. Someone got it and she was like. Hey ya is sugar. Karen from care is realty in dallas. Texas i'm s the insurrection and we breaking into the like literally everything she hears me doing. Crime sally say hi. It's so i mean it's at that point sure. They walked directly into the capital. I'm sure they felt extremely empowered drooled right. I mean and here. We are just marching on the streets. You know peacefully. They went to the capital. I want to get back to this lonely girl fifteen. Nobody thought it was weird that this woman had who had no friends had her own forum like nobody was like. That's strange no okay. So now is the time where you're saying starts to happen so this whole time. No one was saying like. Oh this is weird. They're just enjoying the story. And then when it started getting to the colts area where you know she was you know having shrines and said she was a part of the order ceremonies and stuff. That's when people really millions of people are watching at this point the buzz. You know the new york times is talking about it. She's got advertisers. So now people are making their own blogs and threads places like what's the tea and this is where the haters come in you start getting poppin bidders will come. They will come and they will find so member of the forum embedded in ip tracker on a fake myspace profile and message brief but they weren't messaging breath they were messaging. Amanda the one the remember beckett's wife who works for the talent agency. They didn't let right but they run to my space so now he's talking to a man. They took their findings to the la times journalist. Who published a story exposing the truth behind lonely girl. Fifteen this mainly grow fifteen into front page news. While followed was a world of press and attention around the world so the aftermath after the reveal low. The girl fifteen ran for over two years. What after that's crazy. I mean people mess. I will keep going at rose. The girl who played brief for another year before her character was killed off. Damn go get killed off your own show. It's lonely fifteen. How did he kill the lonely girl. Right it's gonna be another luna girl sixteen or busy girl seventeen seventeen so we had a molecular signature known as a rival zone that extended life. Eventually her character blood was stolen and she dad. Okay this this feeling went into a new realm chart that one there was also a uk spin off and sequel called lonely girl. Fifteen the resistance. Wow okay shutouts alone. the girl fifteen an icon. Right good to know good to go. Thank you for providing us with those instagrams influencers. Thanks you did that rag. And i will say this guy's instagram influencing is hard work. I think that those people are just living lavish taking photos and making money. But trust me if you ever do.

I had to take this photo ninety times. And then i spent an hour editing it. I had photoshop out a man in the back. Oh no it's very hard like. I'm not going to pretend even though i just made that instagram influence or joke. I'm like yeah.

At all right guys and we are back and it's time i camera of the week. That's where we will highlight one. Famous charlatan is worthy of praise. Or not i don't know yet. So scott shields a nine eleven hero scams forty thousand dollars in federal relief funds. Well what wareham. So hero is in quotes so we we gotta see eggs Hero but the quotes giving me pause. G like maybe. He's not a hero. We'll see so if two thousand seven a self-proclaimed ground zero hero who says he his golden retriever rescue victims from the world trade center. Rubble was charged with fraud for allegedly ripping off forty thousand dollars in federal relief funds So i mean hand. Grand jury indicted him and his sister is got. You need help. I'm telling you take the left to manage these things it does. I hope better than your sister. Who does crime do with your family. That's what i say. So basically a manhattan grand jury indicted him and his sister last month for swiping rental assistance. Money from fema and other agencies shields showed up in the days after the attack accompanied by bear. His cancer stricken canine but the dog was too sick to do any real work and there were the two were basically on hand for a couple of days according to the former white officer so basically shields dip pull up to the rubble. He was pay and his dog was out. Why would you bring sickly doll to disaster site. I couldn't there's clearly wrong with his man i couldn't. I'm assuming i could not tell you right. But also i don't know because if he pulled up to the site and maybe he didn't really get to help hands on like he was still breathing and all that shit like so. Many people have gotten diseases after that. Breathing that batty though like does and all those harsh metals and chemicals so he was a he was catty corner to be in a hero. He was in the call. The sack of rescue worker wasn't an assault. Almost doesn't count wasn't that thing. How was that brandy does and can. I wanted to sing it. But i didn't know if we legally could. Oh i don't even. I don't even know i just think stuff out here. Thirty seconds so we good okay. Okay there's anybody who was it would be brandy though randy and then you'll have to run in fall out onto the grass. That's my favorite gift. Oh randy anyway. She's given us so much. So basically this is what the lieutenant dan audio who was the head of the nypd's canine unit At the time this is what he said so he spent nine months ground zero. This guy he says there's something wrong with the guy okay. I don't know how he got so far. We all know somebody like that in. La of you could use that phrase for. We know tons of people like that here. Let's name them gay so shoots claims he and bear made the only live finds at the site so now he's also saying like found the girls who were living like i pulled the rock up off the ones who needed to be rescued l. Okay okay denardo. The lieutenant says that's nonsense lying. Your honor jeez. So after his stint shields moved into an apartment across from the site a swanky apartment. That was three thousand one hundred eighty two dollars a month and got one check for sixteen thousand four hundred dollars and fifty cents. Fema wall so giving two quarters. And that's what he got and that's how he paid for the apartment which i don't understand because sixteen thousand dollars we you're basically paying what four grand a month for your apartment definitely gonna get you live. Four months boo boo like throw the book at him. Throw the book at him. Everything i'm serious. I'm serious. I'm like i'm like you know people were just like you said dying from exposure and you came up a couple of days really didn't do anything by hung out and they tried to collect the check. Also say i don't fuck with shields because i've watched donald john eleven. Say john eleven. Because i was thinking of john stewart who was in a nine eleven documentary where he is a huge activist for like The firefighters and all of the first responders because they got really done super fucking dirty after nine eleven. Everybody's never forget but also we'd never go pay you back lake. So they've been fighting and johnston's brought a lot of attention to it and fought like on capitol hill to get them the benefits that they deserve. So i don't fuck with this because like those. Those people can't even get the money that they should be getting you over here in an apartment and can only have for four months for the foreseeable future shields collected thousands and additional rental assistance. The indictment says he was also getting help for what we this is. How i feel bad for the dog. The dog literally looks right now. Like don't i am not part of this. I did not do this. All the dog looks like it did not consent to the phone. Dog is looking away all of the photos. You know you see like a famous person or maybe this is probably happen to you. But when people see you and they try to get a photo without us noticing. But it's like you in the back of something orlando take an instagram. Video has never happened to me. Not famous enough. You have mistaken me from an actual celebrity. That has never happened to me. It's going to happen all the time down all the time to you. Get ready.
