Surreal Story Of Con Artist Who Impersonated Some Of Hollywood’s Most Powerful Women Leaves The Internet Stunned

Female con artists bluffing their way through the high-end world of the entertainment elite seems to be a motif of 2018. First, on the east coast, “Anna Delvey” convinced New York she was a wealthy heiress with millions of dollars to found a night club. Now, on the west coast, a talented mimic has been impersonating powerful Hollywood executives like Kathleen Kennedy and Amy Pascal.

The story truly sounds like something straight out of a movie.

She sold her parts with so much confidence, nobody suspected she wasn’t who she claimed to be.

Even the victims have to admit—the imposter is good at what she does.

A private investigative firm has been hired to track down the people responsible for the con!

Think twice the next time a studio exec calls you on the phone…

Though this seems like a fun story from the outside, the con artist’s team had a very real, hurtful impact on many up-and-comers.

Hopefully, the Krolls can put a stop to all these crazy cons!

If Catch Me If You Can is any indicator, this year is going to inspire some great movies…
