Really?? Who thinks up a plan like this??
Okay, let us set the scene: Penny Marshall is a big Lakers fan, and even though he left, also a big Lamar Odom fan.
She was approached at a Lakers game about a month ago by Lamar's assistant, who gave her Lamar's number.
Only Lamar doesn't have an assistant, and that wasn't Lamar's number!
Penny didn't know that, and texted a bit with 'Lamar' for a few days before he asked her to loan his assistant some money (we wonder what they were talking about that made that not sound weird).
She agreed and loaned him more than FIVE GRAND.
Then he stopped texting. Penny then got a hold of the real Lamar, who told her he doesn't have an assistant — and now Penny has filed a police report!
Interestingly enough, the scam wasn't COMPLETELY digital! There was actually someone who approached her, exposing his face and everything!
That takes guts!
We're sorry you got duped, Penny!
