Interesting concept but a little OTT
Interviews with victims are good. Kate’s characters voice grated on me after a while.
There is some interesting reading over in the Hall of Shame at 419eater.com which posts stories about scamming the scammer which some of the listeners to this podcast may enjoy.
Started with promise but the fake voice the host puts on was unbearable to listen to. There should have been more focus on the facts about scams and scammers and less of the boring and poorly improved old lady impression.
Cringe...I can understand the premise but it was just so awkward and horrible I couldn’t get past the 15 minute mark.
