Chameleon: Hollywood Con Queen

by Campsite Media

This new True Crime series has been getting a lot of attention since the first episodes aired in early October, with Vanity Fair, Rolling Stones Magazine, the Financial Times and many others publishing articles. I was hooked after the first 15 minutes and millions of listeners like me have been waiting for our weekly episode drop ever since.

This series tracks down the “Hollywood Con Queen”, a shady character who lures aspiring Hollywood professionals to Jakarta under the promise of a job on their first big movie. They impersonate real producers to convince victims to fly to Indonesia and “view locations”, “get makeup inspiration” or “scout for the right gym to train the actors” – all at their own expense which will apparently be reimbursed with the first paycheck. The story turns into a multi-national hunt for a cross-dressing social media influencer who is said to have imitated all characters in the scam, male and female, on their own.

As I write this, there are still more episodes to be published, so jump on board and join me in finding out who the Con Queen really is.
