Megan Hoffman Scam Email – Audition for New CBS Spinoff ‘CSI: CYBER’

Scam Baiting and casual encounters with scammers

Playing with scammers is a lot of fun. It doesn’t take much time (maybe a minute a

Typical craigslist scam post for the express purpose of obtaining your email address

day) and it is sort of like digging in a dumpster and making artwork with the pieces. All without getting my hands dirty(in a literal sense), and, I can use my experiences to get a few laughs and get traffic to my website.

Scammers like to use regular sounding names

Evil Megan Hoffman
All the Megan Hoffman’s of the world are not evil

I understand that all the Megan Hoffman‘s of the world are not evil and I doubt that Megan Hoffman is this person’s real name. Variations of this piece of spam, on a monthly basis, finds its way into my inbox. There is no way to filter it because the email address changes every month.

The scammer’s goal

The goal of this minor-league scammer is to have enough correspondence with an aspiring actor to ultimately get them to subscribe to their “agencies” website in order to, for a price, obtain auditions.

Take note that there is also no company name or website address associated with the initial email.

Note: I linked to the actual domains that the emails come from. You will not find a page with any real content. They are just servers for the express purpose of routing spam. 

The Scammer Megan Hoffman Writes again from:

Hamlet is best performed comfortably

Dear Megan Hoffman,

It is indeed a delight to see that you recognize my supreme talent. Most would not know (unless they have an Ouija Board ) how to contact me. I never leave the house but, late at night when everyone is asleep, I do Hamlet in my underwear. My dogs really love it and I was afraid that my efforts would go unnoticed by Homo sapiens(congratulations on the supreme court decision BTW)  I really respect your talent in discovering me.

I happily accept your offer to be the lead role in the CSI Cyber. I am sure that you realize that I am a very busy man and will have to make arrangements to postpone my current engagement to be on your show.

Now, I have to tell you that I expect a limo to bring me on location and also to return me home to my mansion (in the trailer park) where I live. Also, I need to know other logistics such as: should I wear clothes and should I bring my shoes?

I look forward to doing the show and I hope your wedding is a happy one

The real Megan Hoffman must be some kind of weirdo

Obviously, unless Megan Hoffman is a weirdo as well as a scammer, my reply was not read by anything remotely human

    1. I would say go to your bank and dispute the charge. They will probably tell you to contact the merchant first, but I doubt they are reachable. I disputed charges before. You have to be persistent when call them. Talk to a supervisor and ask them to escalate the claim.
