For the past 6 years, someone — or some group — has been terrorizing a certain class of Hollywood workers. Strivers — day players and physical trainers and make-up artists and security guards — receive a phone call or email offering the job of a lifetime. A key role on a major film, or TV show. This offer comes from a powerful woman — one of the biggest producers or studio executives in the industry. All these strivers have to do is get on a plane, for Jakarta, immediately. But when they land, there is no producer. There is no movie. It’s all a fraud. This is the incredible true story of one the longest and strangest cons in history. Tag along as two long-time journalists untangle the story of the Hollywood Con Queen scam, and embark upon an obsessive quest to figure out who’s behind it.

Breaking Through the Pod Clutter

Completely captivated by this podcast. The story telling is phenomenal and I love feeling like I’m along on the ride in the investigation (of something other than a murder podcast for once). Episode 2 activated my own fight or flight response as I could so easily see myself in Heather’s position and feeling the same intense paranoia she experienced. Bingeing this whole podcast today!
