Untrue, unfair and biased.






BananaBeth Sep 15 2020
Wickedly funny. Anybody rating this fewer than 5 stars is definitely a racist with no sense of humour who only enjoys listening to monotone white people talk about the economy. If I just described you, snap out of it.

Some people just can't tell the story.

CactusFren Sep 09 2020
A casual, chat-style podcast with a "true crime" scam theme. Don't listen to this expecting a scholarly dive into different scams- it is honestly mostly a comedy pod. To Laci- I recommend reading the materials beforehand, girl! You stumbling over every word makes it pretty obvious you did not review at all. Also, maybe change the vocals for the intro and outro. I feel like I'm being yelled at every time there's a commercial break.

This podcast has fantastic stories! The tales of fraud are great for when you want the thrill of true crime without the bummer of murder, and Laci is a delightful host who always makes it fun.

Lacey you have scammed your way into my podcasts and stolen my heart and my social insurance number. Please give one them back.
