    You never really know someone…especially online. In today’s world, the power of influence can be the quickest path to money and fame, and it often ends in ruin. These are the stories of the world’s most insidious Scamfluencers. And we are their prey. On Wondery’s new weekly series, join co-hosts Scaachi Koul and Sarah Hagi as they unpack epic stories of deception from the worlds of social media, fashion, finance, health, and wellness.

From Black Swan Murder to a fake social media influencer to an audacious Hollywood Ponzi schemer, each season will take the listener along the twists and turns, the impact on victims, and what’s left when the facade falls away.

Made my day

Love all of these guys and have had this podcast on my list for a while as a guilty pleasure to listen to at some point when I felt like I could deserve to partake. Then, I saw Sean Penn’s name and immediately felt justified to listen. He is the one in a million, the real deal, and I think these guys did a fabulous job interviewing him. Appreciated the visual descriptions as they almost satisfied my desire to see them all on their Zoom call! Literally made my day to be reminded that there are humans in our world and even in our own country that recognize the value of every human being. I have believed for as long as I can remember that Sean P. is one of those humans. I do wish more people would open their hearts and really listen to what he has to say and how authentic he is. So grateful for these guys and their efforts to present the truth while also preserving their gifts of sarcastic comedy. I look forward to listening to more.

🚀 perfect ear candy to change stuff up

Love these three guys! ❤️❤️❤️
Wouldn't change a thing - guests, perspectives that are more than just plugging a movie or book, favs so far: Clooney, Aniston, Paltrow, Iron Man, Jose Chef, Lebron, soooo many! All the guests are fantastic, like... thank gosh the ads let this pod cast be free and we don't have to buuyyyyyy anything

Kissing up big time!

It's a podcast where a group of aging hipsters, kiss up to other Hollywood elite. In the terms of Adam Carolla it's a "A** kiss rodeo."
